    Just a warning: if you take BDG up on his offer he has baggage.

    To answer your original question - Yes, I will be heading out for early goose as I have a few honey holes on public land. If you have a place to shoot birds, I suggest you do that. Not sure what other advice you are looking for. There are plenty of geese around if you are able to access and hunt them.

    Public land is a crap shoot. I watched a dumb *** run his mud boat through a large group of loafing birds the day before the opener last year as I stayed off the area and watched with binos. It's gotten worse every year chasing them on public land. There are a few out there but a lot of guys know where they are and where they go when they loaf , even with pressure.

    I got into them big time the first year it opened but it's gone down hill every year since. I'm not going so I'm sure it'll be lights out....
