4 man goose limit

Postby woodduck14 » Sat Oct 19, 2013 11:37 am

Got out this morning for a great canada shoot. We were packed up by 8am. The birds pretty much came in on a string. Couldn't have been a better morning.

Jumped a mallard on the way home, put it in the frying pan with some bacon and then had brunch.

Looks like a great day - congrats!

I miss good field hunts. Nice to know there at least ARE some fields left in MA that you can hunt. :thumbsup:

Solid job on the geese there. I have only hunted fields once and it was wicked exciting. I wish there were more fields to hunt out this way.

Thanks guys, I've been a hardcore duck hunter, but these goose field hunts are slowly turning me. The ease of driving the truck with all the gear to the spot is awesome along with never having to deal with water and the beauty of watching geese cupped and commited into the spread.

Field hunts are definitely a spectacle. I remember my first one in OH. I was skeptical, having had a great seaduck season the previous year here in MA before moving, but went out with a buddy who had the whole area wired, and we were ON the "x" no doubt.

We limited out in no time (first field hunt, first goose, and first band that day - and another band the next! - Helluva weekend), and then just sat out in the fresh snow and took turns practicing calling them in and trying to get them to finish into the spread.

The sight of several hundred geese coming in 50 at a time is one that I won't ever forget. :eek: Ever. Total waterfowling crack!

Glad you got to experience that! It's something else (and geese are sooooo tasty!). :drool:

My group sends a bunch of them to the butcher where he makes sausage and snack sticks out of them. Or we make our own jerky.
