I do agree with RED, there are just some fields the geese don't feed in, for whatever reason. I have been hunting the same area around my house for 25+ years, and some fields are the same as all the other fields, but I have never ever seen a goose in them. There is one place around me, it's like the Bermuda triangle or something. The fields look just like all the rest, but I have NEVER seen a goose in them, ever. Just have to try and find out. Geese don't have to be using the field in order for a successful hunt either, couple of my main places rarely have geese "using" them, but for whatever reason, set a nice decoy spread, and they come down for a visit.
