Geese?

Postby eagleheaded » Tue Oct 09, 2007 4:38 pm

Just wondering if any of you fellas have been seeing any geese yet? Normally, by now anyway, there are quite a few specs in our area and even a few snows, nothing as of yet though. Hoping this weather trend we are in will break soon and start sending some of them big boys down here! :drool:

Aint it weird how that works grappler. You go east and theres geese everywhere. You go south and theres geese everywhere but the only time I see em up here there heading out. Except the lost ones, and weve seen a few. :rofl:
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Was at the camp last week, between Jennings and Lake Arthur, and had several big groups of Specks flying over. Hoping to go back this weekend and see what this front did.
