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.
Ever. Total waterfowling crack!
Glad you got to experience that! It's something else (and geese are sooooo tasty!).
