I find the warmer it is the latter they come in. I haven't gone yet this year but my friends have and the geese are coming in after shooting time by 15 minutes. Unless you have an active feeding field the birds are'nt really on the move yet. The last week of Sept. is always been the time to go. Lets face it I can only eat so many geese and we have a long season ahead of us.

Right on the money. I was coming home from soccer Tuesday and blocked the whole road as geese flew into a field at 7:46 and sunset is at 7:40. :pissed: Somebody bought these critters watches.

They are roosting all day on the rivers around here. Sometimes we have to pick a field and hope for the best or hunt the river and hope for them to be pushed by a kayaker or fisherman.

Did you scout them? I did not this year but I know where they are. Mornings are choice. Just get between the roost and a field and work te dekes.

:withstupid: YOU GOTTA SCOUT MAN. ITS HARD TO TELL WHEN YOUR BIRDS ARE ACTIVE FROM MILES AWAY. SCOUT , SCOUT, SCOUT. iF YOUR HUNTING WATER IN THE EVENING THEN YOUR PROBABLY SETTING UP ON A ROOST, BAD IDEA. IF YOUR HUNTING A FIELD, SCOUT EM AND SET UP AS NEEDED.

Temps also play abig part of when they heading out to feed.; If it is hot out--they often will not go out to feed. If cooler then they will 1 time, and if getting colder then twice a day is seems.

I'm gonna say I disagree with that because geese around here feed sometime 3 times a day, the coldest it's been is probably 40* at nights. Went out and scouted last weekend after youth day and seen geese in a field at 8:30 a.m.....drove around until 10:30 a.m. and they were gone. Came back out at noon to check on some cranes and they were back in there again. We left at 2:30 p.m. and they were gone. Came BACK out at 5:00 p.m. to shoot a crane and they were back in there....went by the field at 7:30 p.m. and they were gone once again. I'm 90% sure they are the same geese because it was pretty muchly the same numbers as the day went on. It got me and dad very confused....but I very well could be going crazy just because season is sooooo close!! :yes:
