Day 2 - woke up to snow on the ground. Didn’t see many geese this morning but managed to shoot a few ducks. Had tons of ducks in a slough behind our setup and put the sneak on them - got a wigeon and 2 greenheads.
Drove around the farms this afternoon scouting for tomorrow and saw a little slough with about 500 ducks on it. Jumped them off it and setup for an afternoon shoot. Anyone who likes waterfowl would have been in awe. Geese everywhere. Ducks everywhere. Beautiful sunset. Two of us shot 8 mallards, a pintail, and a green wing teal. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
I'm not a goose hunter but there is some fabulous goose hunting in our area. There are lots of Canada geese in the fall of course, thousands and thousands and there is also the snow geese migration in the spring. Here are three pics I took during one hunting season here.
They fly over our barn on their way into town. Their voices wake us up and we run outside and we can see for miles and there is just flock after flock after flock steadily coming. Even though we are not goose hunters it is a surreal beautiful event to experience and it usually means that winter has broke!
