NO SNOWS

Postby BLACK ADDER » Wed Jan 17, 2007 12:27 pm

No snow geese in eastern Virginia as of this past Saturday. Hope this big cold shot will send some down. Hunting in fields next to Dismal Swamp. :getdown:

Looking Up!

Postby BLACK ADDER » Sat Jan 20, 2007 11:27 am

Saw two flocks of snow geese passing over the Great Dismal Swamp yesterday. They were not in shooting range, but were my first sighting this year. Still many Tundra swans around. (Gosh,they are easy to spook. I had hopes I could slip in close enough to use them as living decoys,drawing some snows in, but they would have none of it. Does that work for any of you folks? The consistant swans on the fields would sure beat putting out a wad of decoys!

EAST

Postby BLACK ADDER » Sun Jan 21, 2007 7:25 am

We hunt the Williams Farm right on the N.C. Line off Rte.17, as well as the Cavalier Tract WMA. Their grain shoots are holding the swans in real good,but no snows YET. Will be hunting sunrise/sunset tomorrow and will report in.Next year I gotta get a swan permit, just to have something to do till the geese show up.Also, puddles and ponds and stuff around Virginia Beach loading up with mallards and Canadas, but couild be mostly locals. :laughing:

Oh,well.

Postby BLACK ADDER » Tue Jan 23, 2007 7:12 am

Monday, January 22..Hunted usual place.Lots of swans,no geese. On our way back to Va.Beach,passed a field with about twenty Canadas.Asked at three local houses,but nobody owned that land,nor knew who did, so we headed on home. Got a call from my brother who was passing through Exmore,on the Virginia Eastern Shore,on buisness. He said the fields up there are chock-a-block with snows and Canadas, with birds in a holding pattern over the popular fields. Am scheduled to take a ride up there Saturday and will report in. :laughing:

Mo' of the Same!

Postby BLACK ADDER » Mon Jan 29, 2007 7:20 am

Well, my brother wanted me to pass along an ammendment to my last report. When he returned (after four days) through Exmore,Va.,there was not a snow or Canada goose to be found! On Saturday I skipped hunting to replace wheelbearings on my wife's van (UGH!) but my brother and sister took a long ride throughout Virginia Beach,Knotts Island,Mackey Island,Chesapeake (all the way around the Dismal Swamp) Suffolk,etc. ..
They saw ZERO geese of any type. It was a bluebird day,temps around 60*,and breezy. There ya' have it.It made "slave labor" seem like not such a bad deal,after all!! :getdown:

South Jersey snows are starting to show up . Down in Salem and Cumberland Co .
To get an idea of how big the flock was these 3 photos should be put together side by side.
