Im not sure what it was but something reminded me of a goose hunt 15 - 16 yrs back. Over 2000 geese had been piling in the field like clockwork for days. The geese had been trickling in starting after 9:00 then pouring in shortly after 10 AM. The last day of the season was tomorrow and nobody had hunted or jumped the geese. Originally 4 of us were going to hunt together. But only the one guy was able to take the day from work. Well, the two of us started setting decoys shortly after 6:00 am in the cold still air. By 8:30 AM it had warmed to -2 degrees, and we had put out over 250 full-bodies. We messed with the decoys until we heard the first goose in the distance. I grabbed my call , my buddy loaded his gun. I called and he killed the goose. we took turns and limited in minutes. The dumb thing: We had a good hide in the deep snow. And placed a ludicrous number of decoys on an x field. At that time both of us had back problems It took us nearly 4 hours to pick up the decoys and we both paid the price for weeks.
