I saw a flock of about 150 landing in St. Albans Bay on wednesday night..... Nothing else.
They might get my guns, but they're gonna get the bullets first!!

Been scouting between Montpelier and Magog for several weeks. Have seen droppings here and there but have yet to find a goose.

Saw goose hunters this morning (Saturday) by I-89 by the border. Does this count?

They looked bored, but I was going to work. I'd rather be bored like them.

went into shelburne bay this morn. ended up with 3. geese are very educated and doesnt help with someone who put a blind that sticks out and hunts with 6 decoys. he probably be better off hunting in one of the sail boats. on the other hand saw 4 migratory flocks today.

Sorry guys but I limited out on Wednesday and Thursday,and today only nailed three,but my partner limited out,and when we decided to pack up the deks,two more flocks started coming in too our spread,but flaired when they saw me running for the shotgun still laying in my blind! But it was a long wait for the fog to burn off!

Put the pooch to work the other day she did great for only being 9 months old,still unsure how to bite down on them and carry them,she basically drags them back,but she is showing the desire to retrieve them,and she can track cripples!

Proud of her birds!
