Just depends on the weather. Normally by the first week in Nov we have some.

I would if there were snows around to hunt. But, i usually dont start seeing them until the first part of November. Once they show up I usually hunt them for about four months or so mixing in specks and ducks when their seasons are in.

That seems a little to early to me as well. When I lived in Missouri closer to KC it usually wasn't till middle of november depending on the weather when I would start seeing many of them. It just depended on when the first good cold snap came through usually a week or two into november sometimes a little later. I know last year I didn't really see a lot till the weekend before thanksgiving.
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.

If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.

Haven't seen any yet, just some resident Canada's flying over every morning teasing me.
I'll be on the lookout while rabbit hunting.

They need to hurry up and get here! Im ready to set out the white spread and start making a dent in the population. The limit has been increased to 50 and im taking that as a personal challenge! Im going to trade in the windsock spread this year for a small fullbody spread and just see what happens. The geese last year seemed to have the attitude of, "seen it before, no thanks" so im hoping to give them something different and hopefully have better results.

Probably just residents and sewer pond geese. A group of 20 or so buzz my house every morning and night, they roost on a small lake nearby.
Sewer ponds = crack cocaine for geese.

These were high flying migrating geese. My neighbor who walks rice fields for CPS saw hundreds in a field yesterday. There starting to get here.
