Few late season canadas from MN

Postby SWMN Waterfowler » Sun Dec 17, 2006 8:13 pm

Got these geese tonight in a field in southwestern Minnesota. We were only using 13 big foot decoys and were getting flocks of 50-100 birds to decoy for about a half an hour straight. Any one else been having some success shooting honkers?

wow nice work boys! i went out both days this weekend, ran traffic on sat to no avail, except 3 pigeons who decoyed quite nicely let me add. and on sunday, hunted a feild further north which caused problems because all of the roosts up north are locked up, i thought some birds would be on the river but i was sadly mistaken. our inland season is over now, and i cant wait untill september. Keep after them honkers and keep us posted! btw is that a big river flute?

Now that you say that, they do look awful small. The middle three especially, look like cacklers.
I love my job, it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

Yes that is a big river flute. Great call for the price. And yes the 3 in the middle are quite a bit smaller then the 2 giants on the ends. There are a lot of the cacklers around, it seems like we have really gained them in the last week or so.

Oh, FYI..... I fixed your pic for you. When you post a picture on the DHC Photo Album the image will be given an ID number, yours is 2110. When you post DHC Photo Album pics all you need to do is put the tags "[SITEIMG]####[/SITEIMG]" where #### is the ID number.

They are lessers, not cacklers. If they were true cacklers, they would be the size of ducks and there beak's would be as big around as your finger but an inch and a half long.
