South Bend area geese

Postby shootemintheface04 » Thu Dec 17, 2009 5:05 pm

hey guys drove by Belmont Beverage on Portage, and cleveland by the toll Road today. there are some very big picked corn fields on the south side of toll road. And for the last few days i have been seeing numerous geese there. Today i drove by around 4:30 p.m. and no joke there was 1000 + geese in the field the field was i'm guessing 150 acres or more probally more and it was full with geese it was all black with geese could not hardly tell it was a corn field. I think that is in the city limits which explains why the geese are there but while i was driving by flocks of geese were landing it looked like Ohare airport with the jets staged off in the distance coming into land only with geese here haha. Any way just wanted to let you know it was a site to see.

That's a good place to watch them if you need to see how they work. Been seein' 'em there for years. Why don't you run in there and shoot 'em real quick and get out so they'll go somewhere I can hunt? I think it'll take the cops about 7 minutes to get there, plenty o' time. :yes:

wow landinggear that takes some balls to tell everybody on here that you shot geese with a bow in the city limits. not sure if that is legal or not never heard of that one haha. I went by that same spot today and the geese were there but not in the field they were all in the sky getting ready to land i'm telling you it was insane the amount of birds well over a 1000 in the sky over the fields.

Next year they'll be down by the N.D. toll road entrance cuz that'll be corn again. Every year at this time they're in one of those two fields where no one can shoot 'em. They need to make it illegal to plant crops in city limits if they want the goose population reduced. Pieces me off every year.

I'l guarantee you this. If you lost any and the farmer finds 'em in his tractor tire, he won't be happy. That was one of the first things the farmer told me when I started deer hunting his property. "If you shoot any arrows out into the field, you'd better find them. New tractor tires are Big $". I don't think Grape Rd. area is city limits yet, is it? If it is, it wasn't legal. The only legal hunting in city limits I know of, is the urban deer reduction in certain areas.

Give the CO a call. I've pretty much asked everything you can think of to him.

I've also had permission to hunt in city limits and called the CO about it. He told me no one would say anything, but he didn't tell me it was legal. If someone really wanted to push it, it's illegal to hunt in city limits. Like I said, I don't know if Douglas Rd. is annexed yet. If it's not, you should've hunted with a gun. You could've gotten yourself on the news. Especially now since channel 22 is right there.

All of grape South of cleveland is city. Now the field at Douglas and Main by the new Hospital always has birds, corn or soybeans and it may or may not be city???


I say good job with the bow. :thumbsup: that had to be hard.
