We got two ponds near me the ducks and geese use and there is about 200 geese in each pond. I have some trouble field hunting some areas as I do not have permission until After gun and Muzzelloader seasons. Those do not freeze unless it's bitter out. There is enough birds in them to keep them from freezing. No permisiion allowed for either pond and they have become dedicade roosts.
My wife just got her knee surgery yesterday for a torn ACL. I hope to get out and drive the river from Snyders all the way to Dam 4 to scout Saterday with my Daughter. I only have a prop with a pitch fork guard right now. I hope to buy a welder and a new tractor for the yard. Then I hope to build a Mudmotor out of the 20 horse motor from the old one to navigate the river better next year.
Where do you all live? I am down near Sharpsburg.
