    So a second part would be what do you consider a successful year? Is it the number of birds? How well you dog/s work or something something else?

    For me this year has been a very successful year not only because of numbers. My 10 year old daughter killed her first goose, my middle daughter loves calling and has had several come in while she is calling. Last is I was able to take part in a youth hunt and get a couple young guys their first limits. Great year for me but comes to a close this weekend.

    Typically I consider a year successful if I'm still alive and relatively uninjured at the end of it

    I usually hunt 30-40 days per year. ANYmore, I hunt mostly weekends, but start hunting in Illinois early, and finish late in Arkansas. I had pneumonia that kept me out of the game for about 3 weeks this year.
