Well the time was right . The geese had finally arrived in force and the weatherman had brought us the goose hunters friend , SNOW. Snow it seems definitely swings the advantage to the hunter, it allows us to essentially disappear in the whiteness. . We had to run traffic because the farmer had chosen to plant beans again this year. I`m sure the high price per bushel had influenced his decision . The field we hunted is huge and flat as a pancake with no cover, but it gets a lot of goose traffic over it so we gave it a go.
It was almost nine before we started seeing any goose activity ,I`m sure the temperature hovering at 10 degrees had held them on the roost a little longer than normal. We couldn't have asked for anything better as groups of geese started showing up in an almost steady procession . It quickly became evident that the birds liked our offering . We were afforded that rare luxury of picking your shots. I had a few firsts on this hunt . First hunt of 2013 , first time out using my new decoy trailer and the first time out to try the remote control flaggers I built from wiper motors . All three worked out well . We had a great hunt today I hope you did too.http://youtu.be/YvIEnyCaFZg
