Quick limits w/pics

Postby Yard Goose » Tue Dec 18, 2012 6:54 pm

I got a phone call from an old friend asking if I was huntn this last weekend. I told him but of course, and your in luck cuz the wife is staying home. Our daughter just turned two so she stayed home to play with all the new toys. Anyhow, we set up in a field that just looked like it was going to be the perfect spot for them snows... Time goes by... and by.. and bang here come a nice flock of geese. oh look there are the snows!! What do they do... land in the field next to us.. ok here come another flock, all canadian though. They circled and came and landed right with us. We both popped up and BANG...BANG...BANG...BANG...BANG...BANG!!!! Both of us trippled right out the gate!!! No snows this weekend but next weekend we will choose the right field! All you couch hunters knock your hearts out.. This is all private land leased by my sweat and blood..... Love it!!!!! :bow:

Tripples for two!!!

Come on Friday! I will check it out again tomorrow morning before work but the weather looks like its going to be about the same! Snow, rain, wind broken for a day then all over again. Heck if it snows we could just lay right in the snow covers. Man I want to bang some snows I don't see them around here much ever what a bonus that would be!

I'm surprised the snows are staying so long in your fields, time to put the :hammer: down. How many deeks do you think you'll use?

That makes the both of us!!! Might be the same group or not.. They are with a group of thirty plus honkers. Last Saturday when that group came over I had 53 full bodies.. They still locked up and pilled into the field with the bulls.. Pissed me off. :huh: :mad: :mad: But a group of twenty minutes later come over us and over them and locked up with us and it was done.. I think its because my buddy feeds the cattle hot.. Oat and wheat hays.. Alot of grains this year at his place.. This Weekend I'm pilln all 100 Full Bodies and mabye make shift some snow bodies.. Any ideas cause I'm kinda tapped out with the purchase of my wife's new berreta? :help:

Hey Jon sorry I didnt call figured you didnt have your phone at work. All the canadians were still in there looked to me like 100 or more hard to tell didn't want to stop and start glassing. The snows were in there good too the most of I have seen and I am pretty sure I saw 6-8 of your favorite little critters waddling around in the field! haha :beer:

Ok, so here is the economy way to get it done with snows. Buy about 200-300 small trash bags along with an equal amount of metal coat hangers. Then straighten out the metal hook end of the coat hanger, round out the other end of the hanger then place the white bag over the hanger, use the metal tie provided with the bags to secure the bag and use the straightened end as a stake. I have killed hundreds of snows using this method over the years.
