Went out in the morning and ended up with 7 geese. The biggest had a tip-tip of 5'11" and weighed out at 13lb 6 3/4oz

Plainsman - nice job and great looking goose. Is the ground froze down there yet?

We were about 2 hrs north of you last weekend and had good luck - but the birds really broke up hitting the frozen ground.

Nice bird, we killed a 13 pounder today too, Wing span wasn't quite as big though.

The ground is froze just enough to make the silo's a real pain to put in.

plainsman look into a smartstick for punching the silos holes. i tried lots of things but after i banged my shin with cheap punches and carried around heavy steel bars to pund the holes i would never go back. your foot cant slip off to bang shins. when you look at sean manns huge silo and rag spreads that he uses you will know why he promotes them really heavy. you can pm for the info
