What a GREAT DAY!!!

Postby HotDog » Sat Oct 27, 2007 3:53 pm

Since a friend cleaned out his garage and gave me his 7 can shells, my son and I have been waiting for the right day to use them. (First had to repaint as they were beat. )
Today was THE DAY!
We hiked a mile out to a cornfield, threw them out 30 yards upwind from a few stalks of standing corn and hunkered down.
Long and short was... our first FOUR canadian geese!!!!!
And we were out by 10:30 before the heavy rains!!!!!
The only downsides are we can't get back out until next week and I need a couple of recipes.
HA, to have such troubles!

Krylon primer white, flat black, metal primer gray.
I don't know how long it will last, but it's easy enough to touch-up.

Thanks, I'll try it.
Canadas with big white patches on their back look bad to me and probally worse to other geese.
