I hear a lot has changed over the years but was wondering if you still get some decent numbers of geese to shoot? Is there still the quota zone and places like Grassy Lake etc.. Thanks

Hardly any geese. don't waste your time. If crab gets 10k plus then the hunting can be decent.

The quota zone in so IL is gone as are the geese. The clubs that are still in operation concentrate mainly on ducks with the occasional goose bagged being considered a rare bonus. Horshoe and Union Co refuges are no longer classified as goose hunting areas but are now duck hunting areas.
