    Not even close! Right now we have the numbers that were here in early October. But it is more than we had at Christmas this year.

    It's about to be a one in ten years kinda deal.

    I can't wait to get down and shoot a few on the old stomping grounds.

    This has been an unbeliveable show for the last few days.

    This guy will be............









    Southbound and down by next weekend! You can count on it.

    maybe this will teach the geese to migrate sooner before it gets so cold! IF they come down now it gonna be a rough trip

    I came up to the NW suburbs to my Inlaws with a truck bed full of goose decoys and now there's very few geese and 12" of snow.

    Plainfield/Oswego was holding 0000s of geese until about 3 days ago
    A few still hunkered down on beans but they are pretty much gone :cry
    Time to start getting the salmon gear ready :tu
    Funny thing is we are now seeing more ducks than geese :reader

    Bulldog, shot me a PM, if your in laws are close to me, next year you could leave the decoys at home and join us. Our Geeses bailed about 2 weeks ago.
