Hunted the last weekend of the WI early goose for my first goose hunt. Have hunted ducks for a few years now but never chased the honkers. Was slow, got out for only an hour or so saturday before the rain finally got to us.

Sunday we hunted a cut sweet corn field, in the rain again and saw quite a few flocks. Between he 3 of us we only shot 3 birds, but shot poorly on the few flocks we had come in, and should have had more. Managed one myself, which amazingly being my first goose and the only I shot that day, was a banded one. That made up for my poor shooting.

Kind of hard to see but I'm holding the banded leg up with my right hand.

I posted this already but here is my new pups pics with the geese I got last Friday. DSCF1461.jpgFirst few came in honking then after about 9 they all were silent. Got one that landed in the dekes without even knowing he was there till I heard the splashdown. I got the last 3 out of silent group of three that wanted nothing more then to land in the dekes. They never left the dekes...lol My pup is 9 months old and is a great dog and a pleasure to have in the boat. Hope she is going to be pointing pheasants in a few weeks...crossing my fingers! Good Luck all!

My buddy's first time hunting and my first goose hunt ever - got a cheap goose call and a couple decoys and managed to call in a bunch! Lots of fun. Shot 4, should have limited out but he'd only shot a gun once before and I was rusty. Got him hooked though, and it was a barrel of fun!

Wasn't here for this hunt, but I thought it was pretty neat as the geese still wanted in!

It's a 20 ft trailer. it's not mine, so I can't take the credit. We have a bungi (sp) cord that we run the entire length of the trailer behind the heads of the decoys. It holds the heads agains the wall. We have all of our feeders in bags. This works great cuz we can pull the 4 wheeler and utility trailer up between the dekes.

Also, I will post pics of the outside of the trailer, not done yet, but it WILL look sweet!

Sweet, sounds like you and the boy had a blast together; by the grin holding his shot gun, looks like you got a partner for life!
