New to NM Geese

Postby Stogie » Tue Oct 02, 2007 8:05 am

Being new to Duck and Goose hunting in NM I am gathering necessary equipment.

What is the predominant Goose we get in NM, primarily Southeast NM.

I am going to Dallas this weekend and plan a trip to Cabellas and Bass Pro. What should I look for in decoys and calls for Field and river hunting.

in SE NM you are gonna be chasin honkers. look for quality over quantity and get yourself a good short reed goose call and instructional video or cd. if you have any money left over, i reccomend a good layout blind. both geese and goose hunters are not the norm here in the desert, but you can succesfully hunt them with the right gear and plenty of scouting. good luck.

Was out at the lake with the wife and 7 year old when my wife looked up and asked what kind of duck those were.

Big flight of snow geese. My daughter had my goose calls and blew the snow at them and had them honking back at her.

First I have seen this year. Flying high and heading south.
