Our whole goose season is a joke, out of whack, ridiculous bunch of nonsense.

One of the most quiet Thanksgiving waterfowling weekends I've ever experienced around my parts!
Literally a dozen shots from two spots Wednesday AM, ending by 7:30.
A handful of shots from one spot Thursday AM, ending by 7:30ish.
No report from yesterday, but it sounded dead.
Three dozen shots from three spots this morning, ending by 8:30.
Between the nice weather/relatively calm winds, deer hunters rumbling through the woods/farms and the lack of a goose season again, whatever ducks were in the area hit the refuges and impoundments quickly this Thanksgiving!
Maybe the birdwatcher types had a good holiday weekend, and can start paying for VDWR funding?

Forgot to add...these spots monitored are some very well known farms/marshes with names you all would recognize. Sound carries well over large bodies of water on calm mornings...a CO's dream locator. Ain't no secrets along the river!

Don’t listen to Kahunna….those “geese” he saw were all cormorants. There’s no waterfowl in Virginia.
