I checked the Monday after the drawing and it said I had not been awarded. Surprised when it came today.

I received one in the mail yesterday as well. I am completely new to this. Is there a good information site or link on this area? I drew for 10-21-19.

rcshank85;

I suggest you find at lease one person who has been before. Then take their experience as a plus and remember stay still until the last possible moment and don't fire at birds over 40 yards from your spot. as to how many fakes that's up to you (I DON'T THINK THEY RENT THOSE ANYMORE) ENJOY, you have one of the better dates.

Have all your paper work completed prior to getting there. Once there a person from the PGC will check your license/duck stamp and guest licenses/duck stamps. Make sure all duck stamps are signed. You will then proceed to another PGC employee where you will draw your blind and then the PGC will give you a map/directions to get to your blind and go over what is legal and NOT legal to do while in the blind. The PGC does not rent decoys anymore so you will need to bring your own. As TEALHNTR said stay until the last minute you can be in the blind that day which I believe is 12:30 but hopefully you"ll have shot your geese by then. Geese are hard to kill so make sure they are well within range.

It's fun being part of an organized hunt. That being said, don't expect close decoying geese. The blinds are way to close together for that. Expect pass shooting at marginal ranges. Put out a spread that will attract small groups towards you. Buy 10 good shells like Hevi-shot BB or even T. I plan to use 5 dozen silhouettes this year. I went by myself last year and put out 26 good full bodies. Had 2 flocks lock up but blinds 150 yds either side made them nervous. I ended up killing one out of 4 that flew straight over me 45 yds up.
