10 of us went to the farm I lease in Md today to goose hunt. First time this season. by far the coldest I have endured for a goose. But the comradery(sp) made it easier. Some stake decoys required drilling a hole with a hammer drill. Wind was brutal. But the geese were flying and wanted to be where we were. We shot a 10man limit. They were still trying to land as we cleaned up. Good times. hopefully a repeat is in short order.
I hunted with a guide names Harris out of Chestertown years ago on a day that the high was -2. Brutal cold geese did not fly until around 1 pm and then suddenly we were done in about 4 minutes. We were down in a pit out of the wind thank goodness. I had two jone pocket warmers going and my feet were still mighty cold. One of the party had an old moving quilt pulled over his lap like an old fashioned buggy blanket. All of us had ski masks on.
