Where are you going to goose hunt Opening Day?

Postby waterfowl23 » Sun Jul 30, 2006 3:14 pm

I'm just wondering where most people will hunt on opening day for geese, I live up on the sandusky bay so I'm just gonna go out in the bay and see what I can get, since most fields arent down around here by that time. Just seeing where everyone else will be hunting.

It was a ex-leased field that just happens to be a real good friend of my family, I would be across the street from Maumee Bay and the Refuge but only beans and corn this year :yes:

The only private ares I have permission to hunt on are fields and they won't be down by the first. I'll either head out to the spoil site on the Huron River. Or head out early morning for a spot at Rest Haven.... Unless of course any one is looking for a partner.

I hunted Bores' fields by the airport in Huron, man those were amazing fields right before shooting time was up they were all going to the bay and had to fly over those fields, it was awesome. Keep me in mind if ya need a partner sometime

It's a great spot to be. They have the University Ponds, the Grain Plant, and Old Woman's Crack to feel safe and secure in, but thay have to fly over top of me to get there.

I'll definatly be looking for a partner for the early season. My brother-in-law who I usually hunt with, won't be ready to get out until after early season is over, and my dad dosen't like to hunt in the heat, so i ususally find myself going solo through September.

From what I have seen of it it looks like a nice place, we don't have a problem getting our birds so I don't see a need to spend the money to belong to any club, and quite honestly a lot of clubs around here don't have the best of reputations, not starting anything here but that club is one of them

I've got 15 generic silo's, half doz Outlaw silo's, a dozen feather flex shells, and a dozen GHG oversized shells, and a goose magnet windsock. The other two guys I hunt with bring in another six generic silos and a dozen feather flex shells.

Next year I plan on putting the generic crap I baught my first few years away for good. Next season will be the big decoy purchase. I plan on getting a doz or so Fullbody's and four or five doz quality shells.

Hey IshootDivers,

Man if you dont use your silos, if your interested in selling them or giving me a nice discount since today is my B-DAY!! :cool: Me and a couple buddies of mine would probably be interested. or any of your other decoys

And for the decoys I use, as of right now between me and my 2 hunting buds, we have about 2 dozen flambeau mallards 1 dozen flambeau teal, and i have 8 flambeau goose floaters/field dekes, they are the ones you can take the keel off, and I got 4 carry-lite fullbodies, so for all the goose hunting we do, we definately do not have enough dekes, we only have a dozen total!

I'm not a 1/16 the man of Ron Jeremy :toofunny: Now why in the world would you call me that?
123 sorry but no dekes for sale, we just keep buying more :help: The silos I will never part with, they are older than me and are from a old timer that ran a club some years back, sentimental.

Naw we just do what we love and don't skimp on anything. As much as we hunt and the time we spend afield we figure if we're gonna do it we do it right, between the 6 of us we pretty much have entirely to much crap, anything from dekes to boats, yet we still buy more, carve more, and we are just ridiculous :salude:
