The 1st Official Goose Scouting Mission

Good morning from my goose hunting grounds in Westmoreland County. This is my first preseason scouting foray. I have some intel from the farm owner. Hehehe

An archer shoots his targets as far as he can. A bowhunter shoots his target as close as possible.

I did a preliminary drive around today checking crops. Spent too much time “shooting the breeze” with the landowners it got too late to find any field feeds.

Found some today up North, but no real large flocks.
Actually saw more turkeys than geese, lol

It’s been slow going. Finding some, but very small concentrations.

I've found a few flocks. I'm eyeing a field that is consistently drawing 200-250 birds. We'll see what's happening there this weekend and make a commitment to hunt there if they're still feeding at that field. I have several other fields where there are anywhere from 75-150 birds using regularly. I's nice to have options and permission.

Have only seen the same local flocks for the last month-ish. 50ish birds total, a few less after monday, but they haven't all hit the field I hunt at the same time. Seems a couple small flocks show in the morning, and a larger one in the afternoon.

Outsiders call us sadists or masochists; sometimes both. Others, mostly ourselves, describe our activities in romantic, even heroic, terms. We take ourselves very seriously and tend to forget that much of duck and goose hunting is fun and sometimes ridiculous.

The perils of duck hunting are great, especially for the duck.
