Successful Nesting

Postby rcatron » Wed May 28, 2014 7:42 am

Anyone else noticing a bunch of geese without little ones? It seems like I'm seeing more this year than normal. I guess with the late cold spells we had, several are sitting on their second nest

The 2 neighbors ponds have a pair with 5 or so. The pair on my pond never hatched any. This is the third year Ive owned this farm. All three years they sit on the nest a week or 2 longer it seems than other birds in the area. And then I never see any little ones. I even tied the little dock I have with the nest on it out on the middle of the pond. Thought maybe yotes were getting them. But that didnt help. I dont know what the deal is.

There are a couple pair that spend time in my pond and my neighbors. Both pair had little ones.

I've noticed this as well. I'm already seeing groups of 15-20 mature birds together. I haven't seen the first little one yet. But I haven't really been looking much either. Been working my nads off so I can pay for a good season.

Well they have showed up in force now so I guess it was just late nesting at the areas I've been checking. If they act like they have the past several years it doesn't really matter though. They'll be in the same spot right up to the end of august and then decide to switch to areas I can't shoot them. Never feels good to get outsmarted by a goose

I dont even scout untill a couple days before September. They never keep the same patterns after late july. Ive noticed this week they have been grouping back up. Im pretty pumped about the limit raise to 5.
