I live in Tri-Cities. I hit Burbank P-unit, free roam side this morning for a couple hours before work, not much flying. I heard a whole bunch of shooting on the other side (typical, birds opposite of me)
I've got decoys, no dog, but a 17 year-old who swims pretty well. Let me know if you want to join us for a hunt. We try to go Sundays when possible.

We usually park at the end of the road and head just about straight out to the river, not as far as the post for goose pit #6, though straight out from there is not too bad. Without a dog we have to limit to how deep we can safely retrieve with chest waders. Some of that water drops off pretty quick so we pass on most anything steaming away from us - I hate leaving a dead bird or a cripple out of reach.
We pack a bag of +/- 3 doz duck decoys. I just picked up a couple dozen goose sillouettes, tried them out on T-Day in goose pit #8. I need to invest in some shells or better if I'm going to get serious about goose hunting though.
I usually blow a Hayes duck call which seems to scare 'em off just fine, though I have others if the ducks are too thick :-)

We might be going out again next Sunday. I'll let you know.

About 5-5:30 is fine for a free roam area. No telling on the numbered blinds. I gave up walking a mile just to find some boater has beat me to the punch, those dekes get heavy after a while.
I'm Todd & son's name is Matt. He is one if KFC/Taco Bells finest and set to graduate Kamiakin HS this year. Your name?
I shoot a Rem pump, he shoots a Ducks Unlimited Mossberg collector my brother gave him last year. The kid is pretty deadly if I can get him near some birds.
I'll let you know this week but am pretty sure we will hit it Sunday.

I'm from tri cities and up for a hunt anytime. I usually hunt the columbia further down towards paterson, the mcnary unit is pretty new to me. I have 3-4 dozen magnum decoys, 7 goose floaters, waders and a dog. Let me know if you guys want to hunt sometime.
