As the season draws another week closer... And my trip up north is planning out very good, I saw a very positive sign yesterday during the down pours and lightning storm! About 2 dozen geese loafing around on the lake near my house! We ended up killing 3 out of the bunch, third on dove and got lost in the weeds and never resurfaced. Along with the geese that seemed to appear yesterday, we saw 30+ ducks (all mallards and woodies) making their way from feeding spots to roosting areas. Along with getting my other buddy his first geese in his 3 years of waterfowl hunting, I definitely was very pleased with the number of ducks that have moved in. It is definitely looking like it is going to be a good season so far.
The worst thing about missing isn't the ridicule from your buddies, its the disappointed look of your dog
