Anybody get geese yesterday?

They just didnt fly. Foggy and warm. Rats.
Maybe this week will try again. Suppose to get way cooler at night.

Nothing here AB. Heard some, couldnt see none. Seen lots of ducks flying today. Teal i think. They were pretty far away.

Nada for me. But, hunted my parent cottage shoreline from a layout. After I quit for the day, high noon a flock of twenty-four landed in the spread. Today, fifteen minutes after I stopped three came in committed from over a half mile I left the spread out both entire days. They fed with some nice looking BigFoots for about ten minutes before they realized it was a spoof. Poor other hunters on the lake weren't happy I left the spread out, but I was to lazy to clean it up. Plus, eff these temperatures. I was sweating nuts in the layout.

I hunted this morning on our new pond and saw just a couple small groups fly and got a single to fly in low checking out the decoys. Popped up out of the layout blind and blasted him, knocked the piss out of him with feathers everywhere and put 2 more shots on him and he just kept on flying. But it's all good I got another limit of dove this evening!

Tried my new one man floating blind. Although several groups flying nothing swung my way. Doves were a bust too. Plenty around a few weeks ago but the last cold snap must have moved them out.

Take care,

Went with a guide in Wisconsin this morning. Three guys, bagged six. A lot were flying but most committed to a field about 300 yards from us.

Have only hunted conservation geese once. Last Sunday. I could hear them, knew where they were, but they never flew.
Weird trying to hunt in shorts. :smile:
This Saturday is teal...I plan on killing geese, maybe teal. Hopefully lots of guys go fishing or teal hunting and stir things up.

Have swatted a goose or two before. Early season they'll swim in and refuse to fly sometimes. Its goofy but has happened several times on me. By November...they fly good!

We got 2 Monday morning. The brother in-law shot his first goose ever so he was stoked.
