I have tried to get a goose with my bow the last 2 evenings. It hasn't worked so well. About 40 have been feeding in the pasture in front of my parents house. It has been tough to get close enough to them. I lost an arrow yesterday, when 4 of them broke off and flew over me. It would have been a piece of cake with the old 12 gauge, but I was a little behind with my stick and string. Hopefully they will be somewhere a little more stalkable in the next couple of days.
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!

I tried it twice last week. Behind my house is about a 8 acre field they sometimes land in, in the morning. But it's in the Village limits so I cann't shoot, however I asked the police and they said I could shoot my bow. So I put out my decoys and ground blind. Got them to land, sat up and pulled back quickly, but couldn't hit them. In the air by the time I was ready. Neighbor laughed his head off at me. But I was hunting and that's what matters.

Ya gotta catch them with there feet down and breast at ya. That's a big target but you still gotta pick a spot.Use a regular broadhead not a flu flu, reg. feathers and a scorpio( found in 3Rivers Archery Catalogue) behind the broadhead. The scorpio keeps the arrow from passing through the goose. Knocks em dead, but you will probably have to chase em. Ton's of fun. They are too quick to try to shoot them after they land.
Misses are the norm still. Good luck and good hunting.
Ever see a flock of coots fly south? Neither have I.
