    Our hunt didn't seem quite as bad but I understand what its like. We only had a little rain but the wet snow soaked me and the dropping temps froze my clothes, gun, and dekes too. When I picked up to leave the field I couldn't get the shells out of my gun because of the snow and ice frozen in my chamber. Had to bring it home to thaw it out along with all my other stuff. Pretty wild out there today.

    Late Season Success?

    Pounded our limit of 15 yesterday out of our pit in a cut bean field. Just running traffic with about 5 dozen silos, 2 1/2 dozen foots and a couple dozen shells. Gotta love the snow, birds just get stupid. At one point had a flock of 600 birds circling in and had about 100 on the ground in the dekes. Didn't wanna wreck that many birds so we just watched for bands and when we didn't see any just let them land and then finally they flew off. Today was some TOUGH hunting. Rain early turning to wet snow covered the dekes. Then the blowing snow and dropping temps was hard on the hands. It was cold enough in a pit, a layout blind or something would have been unbearable. Most of the birds didn't seem to fly our way because of the strong wind but still mananged to scratch 8 before the weather chased us inside.

    hunting on the ice?

    Up in the air, I believe in MN it might be considered open water and you need to be partially covered in naturally occuring vegetation. You might want to look into it, but if you were on shore it would definitely be ok, middle of a lake....maybe

    Shotgun Registration

    Never really thought about registering a used shotty, not a bad idea to look to see if it is stolen, good tip

    Take a look at this question...

    More shallow water seasonal nesting ponds up north in the spring with food to support young, and then south to find food and open water in the winter.

    how do you cook goose

    I second Fajitas and another way I have cooked them is by baking them with apples onions taters and bacon. Usually turns out pretty good with a full roaster.
