We got a few this morning

Postby JustinNH » Sun Sep 09, 2012 10:14 am

Went back to the spot we got one yesterday with a bigger spread today... unfortunately, only one group came by today (saw a few more groups the day before but only had a limited number of decoys out and only a single came in).

3 dozen decoys got this groups interest a lot better than a half dozen :thumbsup:

While they didn't land in the spread like we hopes, they passed right over us at about 25 yards up...

Best part of the day was knowing that we scouted the geese out before the season and have been watching them all summer and it paid off :thumbsup:

Also got to use my new layout blind, which was nice.

Congrats :thumbsup: Glad it worked out for you. We had a spot that we had scouted the birds coming into around 8am. Got set up before daylight, they never showed up :no: Early season goose hunting, oh well. Great job Justin!

Nice looking birds! I took my daughter out this morning for a hike, and though we looked, didn't see a single goose- we did, however, jump 4 ducks at a new stillwater stream bend we thought might be productive.
It's better on the water.

I have the best story ever. I usually don’t have enough time for early goose season but I decided to go give it a shot this morning. woke up early get my gear ready and off course my dogs ready. I check my license and everything look good but no federal stamp took my clothes off and went to bed . My dogs very disappointed. Oh well no stamp no hunt :mad:
