Goose Hunt
« on: January 26, 2015, 08:03:09 PM »
Took my son, Andrew, and one of his friends goose hunting this past weekend. His friend has never been before and did not shoot, but tagged along which was a lot of fun to watch a "new hunter" in the making.

Saturday night we only had a signal goose fly in and my son knocked him down. Then Sunday morning all three of us went back out and my son took one and I got one when we had three fly in.

Latter on we had a signal fly in and we both shot and the signal dropped. I told Andrew that was his bird, but he said he thinks we both hit him at the same time so he thinks that bird belongs to both of us.

All in all a great weekend being outside.

Yari, that's funny because I remember very well what my sons friend, Casey, said which was "I can't believe how big of a splash and how loud it was when they hit the water."  Guess it funny some of the things you take from each hunt and just remember about them.

that's funny. great minds think alike. the first snow goose I shot bounced and split it's breast wide open. I couldn't believe it but my buddy said it happened when you knock one down from way up. snows are easier to know down than Canadians, especially w/ a 10 guage. I've had many since that got busted on impact

keep shooting. there are plenty of them. good eating too
