We killed 5 geese, birds did not want to decoy at all. Son had to go to work in the afternoon, left @ 1130, loading up the truck, here comes 150 geese and land right where we were set up, left half and hour too soon.

Went dove hunting in the afternoon, not too many flying, then the thunderstorms started.

Did see about 5 good flocks of teal, have to wait til October.

Set up on a loafing spot because the geese had been consistently hitting it by 10 am due to the consistently hot weather for the last two weeks. I ignored the forecast and thought it would get hot again just like it had been and nope it stayed overcast and 75 and the geese never left the fields. Saw a lot of teal as well and a bald eagle came and checked out the spread a couple of times. These September geese are always tough to pattern. Can only get better I guess.

That is a fact on being hard to pattern, will see what tomorrow holds if all the rain does not bump up the river.
