California Early Goose Opener 2013

Postby Legband#1 » Sun Sep 29, 2013 8:08 am

We had a great opener cyrstal clear day, you could see the coastal range to the west and the sierras to the east , the morning temperture 51* , we had a light south wind .
the birds were more spread out accross the county this year do to so many farms harvesting at the same time .
we had four groups come by and got three of them in , we finished by 8:30 with 24 honkers , no bands today :( .
But a great time and great memories.

Awesome! That's a pretty good idea to hunt against the road like that so your layouts don't silhouette against the horizon. Hope it was dry lol

Thanks , it was a little wetter than I would like it to have been , but not as bad as it seems in the photos.
The birds were feeding in the field behind us , and we did not have permission on that property,
So we wanted to cut them off, the wind was supposed to be from,the north but unexpectedly flipped to the south so we made a few last minute decoy adjustments and it all worked out .
