Early Season

I see the 2015 crane and early goose dates are out. Glad nothing changed and I sure am looking forward to the season to come!

Season is winding ever closer and my excitement continues to rise. My fields are already starting to fill up with family groups of geese that have finished molting and begun to fly again. Won't be long before I'm out in the spread with good friends waiting on the first honks of the morning welcoming me back to another season.

The Green has a healthy population of Geese at the moment. It may just be a good year.

I'm thinking it's going to be 1 helluva year over here! We'll see if I even see another hunter this season. It's been a season and a half since I've seen anyone in my area.

From what I am hearing Seedskadee gets hit pretty hard and anywhere else is just passively jump shot. There aren't a lot of duck hunters in SW Wyoming, which with a good population of birds makes it a fantastic year.

Pretty hard is definitely relative. I went there 4 times last year and heard another group 1 trip, never saw them. Where you out of?

Green River.

Most of the places, I have been looking have been in close proxy to the gorge thus far.

I wish there was an early teal season, because I know of a spot a few blue wings hang out.

I bet they will be gone by October.

Gotcha. I'm up in Kemmerer. I shot 20 teal the first 3 days of season last year. They should still be around. They move out the 2nd week of October usually.

Hopefully,

I never shot a BWT.

I have shot a CWT and a GWT, but not a BWT.

Kemmerer is a nice town. I went up to Viva Naughton a few months ago.

Fall Fishing on the Hams should be great this year also.

You realize it's more likely a cinnamon than bluewing right? They are in summer plumage and nearly indistinguishable.

I have seen drakes of both this year.

Hopefully, it doesn't get to cold to quick.
