    From what I seen/heard the foothills were wide open and loaded with birds.....We did some damage, not like years past but we made things go thud on the ground..had some laughs, ran a simple 12 decoy spread (to hot for much more) that's what early goose is about..;)..our birds moved early (dark) and never came back..:mad:. That's ok Jr trip coming up so they'll have some fresh birds!!:tu

    Took a while to retrieve up all the birds after one volley but this thing ended up on top of the pile..

    Never even seen a bird. Nothing, Nada. They must have moved.

    Ouch, that sucks !
    I guess that's why they call it hunting and not killing .
    Do you think you spooked them when you went in with the quads in the morning or when setting up the decoys?
