Always geese around. Just need to do the work to find the feed, secure permission to hunt if the land is posted, and then enjoy the hunt. I hunt exclusivley in the middle of the sate south of Interstate 94 between Valley City and Jamestown. Early goose has been a bit slow, but honestly its been so damn hot I have only gone out a few times. If you look for geese to hunt hard enough, you will be rewarded for sure. Same old same old...gotta do the work to get the pay off.
