    Hunting and fishing is never a waste of time.

      I don't know where you are but here is South Dakota it has been so warm there is not a lot around however it is never a waste of time to get out in the field you will always at least learn something and get the enjoyment out of it.

          if you have previously scouted the area and know geese are coming to the field its a good bet. if you havent seen geese on this field prior then you are wasting your time. in the early season you are hunting resident birds that are on a pattern. they pretty much roost on the same lakes and ponds and hit the same feed fields every day. they either are at your spots or not.

            We have lots of geese passing over at a High Altitude, One would need anti aircraft Guns with Flack loads to hit them, they are flying North.

              This is the time to find local geese and see where they are feeding. The best bet would be to set a few decoys in the field where they feed and hunt that. Last year my brothers set up a dozen decoys on a field about 1 mile from town and nailed about 40-50 honkers off the same field.

                We have a 4 acre pond with a island in the middle and I see the local resident geese almost anywhere in the vicinity. It is between soy beans and corn and it seems I never see them in the same place twice. Get some camo and stake your area out and you may get lucky.
                We have also been seeing the Canadian's flying north.

                  The only waste of time during hunting season is watching the television except on Saturday afternoons for your favorite college games!
