A first for the guy that got permission

Postby wjarrell » Sat Jan 11, 2014 10:37 pm

A friend of a friend got permission on a winter wheat field. He's never killed a goose and never had the chance to decoy ducks or geese. He called my buddy up because he knew we have the decoys and extra layout blinds. The next day we show up to the field and get set up by LST and it wasn't long after we had our first shooting. The first 4 of the group land 10 feet from Billy (the guy that has never killed a goose) and when the group in the back got with in 20 yards we called the shot. Billy's first up was a double! Needless to say he is hooked. The guy on the left is Billy.

Im wondering if your winter wheat is that tall, when do you guys cut it? BTW congrats to the young fellow on his first goose.

You know I'm not sure what time of the year they cut it but it was only a couple inches tall. It doesn't look like it in the picture but there was more dirt showing than green in that particular spot in the field.

It was short enough that we had to go to the next field over to brush up our blinds.
