    I will say
    While it was fun in the early 2000’s it was nothing like the 80’s we would see flocks of dark geese that would last hours... flocks that would rival any snow geese flocks and they were everywhere.... there was no out of the flyway places..... it all was the flyway. The fields outside Masey were packed every field. The kids of today will never see that... sorry to say but its true.

    Smackdown 870. You’re correct everywhere was flyway and yes unfortunately these guys will never see that

    We hunted up there in the mid 80 s and had to stop the car twice for geese crossing the road. All through the night you could hear the geese. Took a few days to get the goose honk ringing out my ears. There was a loose goose up there then!

    Sounds like the mid 2000s to me. Everywhere had birds and limits were pretty much guaranteed for 45 straight days. I smoked birds outside of Massey, Earleville, etc that haven’t seen a goose in years. We might not have had the exact same amount of geese, but the hunting was every bit the same and geese were literally everywhere on the north shore and limits were easily had quickly. It was not possible to have better hunting other than you had a 3 bird limit.

    How the hell are you arguing about a comparison to the 80s when you weren't alive?

    I am 72 years old, and remember the goose hunting in the 1970s and 80s. The numbers of geese, and a 90 day season, 3 bird limit, will not be forgotten. Hunting is still good, but never like the old days...
    What changed? Very good nesting success on the AP and AF geese over many years, compared to recent years.......simple.

    What he described was exactly what it was in the mid 2000s, and I have had plenty of people tell me the hunting was the exact same as back then.
