I'm have killed some geese over the years while duck hunting, but I can honestly count on one hand the number up time I have specifically set out to kill a goose. Well, I have a 15 year old cousin who want to hunt some during the early season, so we are going to give it a shot. I've found a spot that is holding 50-75 on a nearby lake. The water in the lake is down some (like most lakes this year) and they are feeding on the new grass sprinting up in the mud flat. The area is probably 75 yards from the water, and there is nothing between the grass and water but mud. Based on experience there it isn't too soft, but it will be a little slick. In my little bit of experience with geese, they seem to prefer landing on the water when available, and then walk out onto the ground to feed. With there being quite some distance between the grass and water, would you expect them to land directing at the grass or land in the water and mud bog across the the grass. They ave been there every time I've looked, so I can go look for tracks without spooking them. I also haven't been able to get there in the morning to watch them come in, which I hope to do. Anyway, what would be your guess. Set up on the water, or set up directly on the grassy area in which they are feeding?
