Finally after several days of unsuccessful goose hunts in a newly aquired field. I hit the jackpot. For days now i watched flock after flock of geese give my spread no looks. Well today it all changed.
I decided to be a real waterfowl hunter and stick out the rain. Well not long after a little lunch break i returned to my layout blind. My buddy decided it was time for a nap. Well out of no where can Four different flocks of geese. All were at different locations across my horizon but all headed directly for me. After some aggressive calling with my new Foiles SMH and yelling for my buddy to wake up. Eight came in just at the far edge of my decoys. Well Mr. Hevi shot put one down. I only got one good shot off as i was calling and trying to work the rest of the birds but one was all it took. This was very exciting for me. This is the first time that i have set up all my own decoys and called all by myself. So breaking losing my virginity to today was a big confidence boster.
So the moral of this story is never give up.
Oh.. Last but not least Thank you suskie for all the lessons on calling and talking me into buying that new call.
Pics to come soon!
