A new season of 'North Woods Law'
will be coming on the air soon. Through random luck... or through bad luck, Littleducker and I will be making a brief appearance at some point (under completely lawful
circumstances I may add
Littleducker is excited and I am happy for her, but I'm not exactly sharing her sentiment in regards to seeing my carcass on TV.
We were approached while on a late September goose hunt. I had 3 geese on the ground before they arrived and Littleducker had not yet turned 10, so she couldn't shoot. I saw them pull up and thought it was "some yahoo" until they got out.
I'm pretty sure they filmed me land a flock of geese from the truck. Too bad that they landed on the left side of the spread about 15 feet from Littleducker's blind. I passed on a shot that would have had me either firing over her or toward the houses behind us.. so we let them go.
The film crew and warden (whom we had banded geese with earlier in the summer) were very nice. However, as they were wrapping up I had a lone goose fly by. They told me they wanted to film a shoot so we jumped in our blinds while the 3 of them 'crouched'... among the silo decoys... in a clean silage field...
. The one camera guy was about at my 1 o'clock position pointing his lens at my face, so I don't know how I would have safely taken a shot if I chose to. Anyway... I called and goose turned, cupped, and glided right by then circled around 3 times. He wanted to come in BAD but the group of people standing in the decoys were cramping his style. I passed on a couple 35 yard shots and he eventually landed about 80 yards out as the crew headed back to their truck.
Littleducker was extremely excited. So, if you happen to be watching when the clip comes on, enjoy a little Maine goose action for her... and don't mind the bubba with the gun.
