We had a fair amount before the deep freeze but they wouldnt play ball. Hole up on the big water where you cant get at em...come out well after shooting time...frustration...finally gave up...Shot lots early and reg season though

We had some around Stockbridge, but they all over the place couldn't pattern them at all. I think I will just havee to wait until next year.

Had some early in the late season, they were roosting on my farm just out side jackson, by munith. Thats proly why you couldn't pattern them. Had 500-1000 roosting every night on the farm and eating 1/2 mile away on the farm they never left. Got a couple good hunts in then watched weather on like the 4th and saw it was gonna freeze real bad so busted the roost, and shot a 15 shoulda had a couple more too. This was my first year goose hunting but it was tough couldn't find the birds after the freeze.
302 ducks this season off my farm, not bad for michigan.
