Opening day for late goose season

Postby Boomn4x4 » Sat Dec 10, 2005 12:29 pm

Got up earlier than usual today, I knew someone else was going to be in the field and I wanted to get to the blind before they showed up. Good thing I did, arrived on site to find 4 feet of snow drifed in the blind. Fortunatly there was a shovel in the truck. Dug out and began to set up deeks. I found out this morning why foam shell's are not always the best choice. Spent about 15 min chasing down two that were caught by a gust of wind, one made it about 100 yards before I finally jumped on it. Sat down in a snow drift and watched hundreds of geese land about three miles away for two hours. Finally...... small flock of about 7 took the bait and set their wings, only 4 flew away. Would have like to have gotten one more, but I'll take what I can get.
