Swamp hunting geese during the day??

Postby CSAKing » Sat Sep 08, 2012 8:01 am

Would this be a viable option? Me an a buddy are scouting some swamps we have permission to hunt today and I was wondering do geese lay up in swamps with open water during the middle of the day? Most of these swamps are surrounded by farmland? I have my gun with me regardless and some #bb's with me. Just wondering what y'all thought

X2 they tend to roost in some larger ponds in the swamps here but usually loaft at farm ponds. Some will come back but usually go to the refuge. But it cant hurt to throw out a few goose dekes adds visibility to ur spread and you might catch a few singles. Better to have em and not need em than need em and not have em

The term "swamps" could mean a lot of different things. These are wetlands in farm fields? Do you ever see geese using them? Feathers on the water? I shot a limit of geese out of a wetland surrounded by fields last weekend over 3 decoys. The geese were coming in to loaf for the day about 9:30 am.
