Cranberry bogs for geese on the Cape

Postby duckdoc » Sat Aug 19, 2006 8:36 am

Alec- although I have yet to hunt the early goose season myself (still flyfishing for stripers in September), some of my buddies do, and have had very good success hunting the edges of cranberry bogs. Of course, unless it's an abandoned bog on public land, you will need to get permission from the owner; my friends have had good luck with that as well as most owners want the geese kept away from their bogs (for obvious reasons). Can't hurt to ask...good luck!

Jim - Thanks for the tip - it's much appreciated. We don't have but one cranberry bog here in Wellfleet, and it's right on 6, but I know of several down mid cape that would fit the bill nicely. I'll have to take a gander down that way and get permission - no pun intended!! Thanks again and good hunting, Alec
