I could ask this on the Passion forum, but I like hearing from my local peeps. (am I too old to use that term?)
I have a beaver pond that is surrounded by mostly mature hardwoods. The pond is new to me this year and I haven't truly hunted it because I had better options.
In the past, I've seen a few ducks in there and in recent days whenever I visit, it is loaded, I mean loaded with geese. Even this morning at 6:30 I got within 10 yards of contently swimming geese.
The gun was ready, but not a single duck could be seen. The 20th goose opener will be here before we know it, but here's my question.
Because I'm not a goose hunter, I never gave this much thought or paid any attention. Will ducks and geese mingle on the same water? As in today, if I'm hunting ducks and see a boat load of geese, should I not even bother or COULD ducks be in the mix? I'm aware of chapter of duck physics about "just when you think you have things figured out...".
Thanks for any opinions!

If you jump them off the roost they won't come back, its a one shot deal. If somebody else jumps them off the pond before you get there, you won't get any at all.
