Darn , that's a Bummer ! Our's starts Oct 21 but our early Goose was a blast , to be continued in just over a week . Most Clubs in the area are filled-up and local birds are having a hayday with all the water and new feed , cornfields are being chopped so theirs a lot of places for birds to feed , if fact , the wife and I were visiting south of here and saw at least 300 Lesser's feeding in a recently cut cornfield . Those birds are surly City birds as well as most of ours . With the arrival of the migrating early birds ( Teal ,Sprig and some Spooners) the skies well be full again soon .
