I couldn't get off work for the super high tide with wind on Friday, I was able to play hookie on Sat and nail this big 12lb boy!
I talked to some guys I passed on the way out who informed me the geese had been coming in everyday in the afternoon. Sure enough right after high tide, in comes this guy and 4 dozen of his best buds.
I only had duck decoys out, so I kept quite and they landed 60-75 yards out. I'd hoped they'd just swim on by. It wasn't until I started making some ducky noises that they said "oh, those are just ducks!" and they came chattering and honking right into range. Now if only I had been carrying more than just #2 shot, I'd have had three birds.
All in all it was a pretty good day.
