Congratulations Rick! Nothing beats that smile, especially if it comes with a memory of the double-honk sound you hear just before the dark lines of a row of locked wings emerge from the morning fog ;) Where you hunting over a set, land or water?

Now I've got the urge ... spurred by the hankering for bacon-wrapped chunks of Canada Goose breast meat grilled over all wood charcoal :)

I wonder if that is one of the little balls of fluff that grew up on my back lawn last summer. :(

Dave,

Nope you are right on the money. His dad went to take his pic and I said wait, he has to hold a gun. Then I saw him do that and corrected him :mad: but after the pic was taken.


That bird was taken from our back yard behind the barn or what used to be the barn. The local farmer had just made his 2nd cutting yesterday afternoon so all the fields are now down to stubble. We do have an area where we had set decoys. But it seems like every night we are on their flight path from 1 area to their bedding spot for the night. Sometimes they come over our fields a little too low and this is the result. :rambo2:

These birds would not land in our set in the evening. The only way we get them to think about landing is in the morning. But everything is so green right now, it is hard to get them to think about coming in. But we have tried twice so far with no luck.

So we will set up behind the old machinery pile again tonight right before dusk and hope for some more low fliers.


And yeah, that is one hell of a grin. He was so excited last night. First time he was with us when we got one. Funny part was when it hit the ground the 1 wing was still twitching and he hollers to his dad " Bullets, Dad we need more bullets !!!! He's still moving !!!!!!! "

My 28 year old son called me this morning with his first one ever. He was so PROUD and had to get his waiters on and slog through a swamp to retrieve it, a little bit later another single goose flew over saw him with the dead one and turned around. I am not a hunter but glad to see him pick it up from his GF's family. We plucked a pheasant right after Thanksgiving dinner that I did not know was in the cooler in the garage last year. Smoked it up and it was tasty :D

Well we have finally reached the magic number of 6 so that means it is time to get the smoker ready.
And there are still more flying so we may get a few more for later.

Just picked up this little jem.

And we have some venison left over from last year so the new smoker will get a workout next weekend. Will start prepping the meat on Wednesday and firing up on Saturday.


Oh what a great time of the year it is........
