High geese and long range hunting of game animals allways get a good airing so here goes. I like shooting high geese i mostly shoot the tides and low geese are rare on my regular grounds. decoying other than a few on the flood behind us is about as good as it gets, and its rare i do this. Calling skeins of geese i have never accieved this, odd birds and littl partys yes but whole flighting skeins a no go for me. i have had some good results with high shooting over the years, i have wounded a few and lost others on the sea that glide off out of range of the dog. I am not proud of my failures, i try my best to judge the lead and put the best developed reloads i can muster and put the shot on the goose. I dont ever take a shot i think is out off my capability as a marksman and the load i am shooting. I genuine love this type of shooting its awe inspiring to me, i never tire of doing this and i have done it most of my life i get some hassle at times from others on the marsh it is generaly those who cant or have not shot a goose on that flight, its got quite personal at times some go way to far in thair condemnation of my and indeed others actions who like and do the same as me shoot high geese. Whacking a goose at hight and watching it tumble and bang down with a loud bump ages latter on the frozen merse just is the thrill of my life, i live for it. My sucsess rate on high geese is roughly two thirds thats better than my sporting clays score. so i must be doing some thing right mabe i try harder on geese i realy dont know. Like i said before i have had bad press on this sport i feel most os feueld by jelliousy ond others greed rather than my alleged greed and imoral attitude i have had leveled at me before. Any body else share my liking for the tall ones and feel the same as me and had similar experiences to us here. Its ok i have the chin strap tight on my tin hat.
