Early Goose Reports

Recommended Posts

Hunted a wheat field.

13 15 honkers for 4 people

Should have had a 4 man limit, but had to deal with a dog being stupid which cost us shots.

We were on the X, the geese are very uneducated as usual this early.

Out in South dakota our group got 18 honkers between 5 of us. Also had another one that got up out of the pile of dead ones and flew away. Couldnt shoot it because it was flying low and the dog was jumping in the air trying to grab it.

Jaspernuts, good job on the smell dump over the side of the boat.

Got on a winter wheat field and had a good shoot. five guys both days and we limited out both days. Geese started flying at 6:30 opening morning and we limited by 7:30. Geese started flying at 6:40 today and we limited by 7:45. It cant get any easier than that. On saturday we had a hundred geese circling our spread at once. We let a few land and opened up on a flock of 20-30 birds that commited and we dropped seven. That was cool.

Opening morning only saw 2 flocks on the SE of Monti. Barely any shooting, and highest bird count we could find was 8. No birds for us on a 110 acre wheat field on Pelican Lake frown

Today saw lots of birds but none would pay any attention. We figured they were being busted out of the skies as soon as they left roost. And again no birds!:(

New area tomorrow so hopefully we will get lucky

Good luck and be safe

15 for 3 guys this morning.

Hunted an Oat field.

We had a Triple Triple this morning. Took 9 birds with 9 shots.

3.5" BB Black Cloud works!

I got the call at 4am this morning wanting to know if I wanted to hunt, it is nice to have made friends with lots of hunters.

I figured I would not be hunting this morning.

went back home south of mankato for the weekend. Saturday saw around 30 birds. A few got close pulled two down. Sunday I took my daughter out she is 4, she wanted to leave after a half hour but I dont care. It was worth it to see my little girl decked out in camo. The birds we saw on sunday were flying high and were already gun and call shy.

We shot 23 yesterday for 5 guys. The majority of birds that were shot were between 9:45-10:15, we had a nice little loafing puddle which I guess birds came mid-morning.

RRR, A triple triple?

Do you mean that 3 guys each tripled with one flock? If so that is impressive!

Correct, took 9 out of a flock of 13.

A lot of luck was involved.

The geese were finishing inside 10 yards.

The geese were almost on the ground when we opened up.

It was in your face shooting this morning.

    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works ūüėĀ. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.¬† Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill.¬†
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss ¬† ¬† ¬† yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill¬†smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee¬†cookers thanks.¬†¬†ūüėė¬†¬†
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!¬† But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.¬† I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they¬†could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.¬† Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.¬† ¬† I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.¬† I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.¬† It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.¬† Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!¬† No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!¬† That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering. ¬† Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.¬† I sat there for a few¬†minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!¬† I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!¬† ¬† What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the¬†second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that¬†runs through my mind but the northern as¬†cool¬†as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know¬†how massive it was, makes it¬†"easier" to¬†deal with.¬†
