    My early honker opener was pretty uneventful. It is tough to pattern these resident geese when there are so many fields in the process of harvest. We didn’t get any shots but the dogs had a good time. My son got 2 geese later in the week but 2 geese in 6 days of hunting is nothing to rave about. Closed now until October 13 General Season. Happy Trails

      Terrible practice advice there Honk.....it is not the looking at the gun but they focus on the bead (i.e. aiming)
      PH: you want wing shooting advice, ask Phil. He is a "way better" coach ?

        When the shooter "aims" the shotgun he is looking at the bead (i.e. "the gun"). Thought that was clear enough. Guess not. We don't have a difference of opinion ... just different terminology.

          Squirrel season is opehere, and our resident geese as well, but we don’t go after either. I don’t like bumping deer off the hill before the Oct 1’st bow opener, and the boy gets to hunt the youth firearms season on Columbus Day weekend this year so we’ll probably limit the amount of bow time that fist week as well.

          I hear goose sausage is very good. I should probably do something about that

          Very buggy and humid out there today. No wind at all. By the time I finally got home every inch of my clothes were drenched with sweat or muck. Glad I had water in the rig. Drank almost a full gallon. A country store with a pop cooler was just down the road a half mile. I was an awful stinking mess but I went in anyway. Aaaaah! Ginger ale sure hit the spot! A dairy farmer I know was also there fresh from spreading manure in the fields (he was picking up UPS package). Looking at (and smelling) him I didn't feel so jiofi.local.html bad!
