Invasion by Canada!
« on: October 02, 2016, 08:43:31 AM »
Well, yesterday was 10.01.16 and the invasion from Canada has begun!  ()*$%RT
Not before yesterday but now the invasion is here!

Canadian geese flying over my ladder stand. Going west in the morning, back to the east in the afternoon. Today, the 2nd wave made their presence known. Getting close to the corn harvest these critters know the routine hitting the farms around me. Pretty soon the skies will really be full with squadrons of them. I think they move their invasion further south from here by the middle of next month.  ##$%#113

Yep, them are some serious poop factories - they've already discovered the new pond at our house - would rather have a few ducks (especially woodies) but I suspect I don't get much of a vote on this.  Had a flock of about 40-50 white pelicans do a low flyover a couple weeks ago, but they didn't land.  Does seem like the migrations are starting.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I love to hunt Canada geese.  Love to see them coming in into the decoys.  Like to eat them, too!

ahhh....not sure what has happened the last ten years....here in southern ontario we used to watch the flocks heading south around our thanksgiving time(next weekend) but now there are resident geese everywhere and a lot of them stay here all winter.It used to be somewhat rare to get them hunting but now they are more abundant than mosquitoes.
Maybe Trump could build us a wall this winter so they can,t get back in next spring...lol

Gander, not all geese fly south for the winter.  I have been told by more experienced goose hunters, that the geese will stay in the area as long as there is open water available.  In MI, we have a late goose season in January, so it can be plenty cold out there, and you can still shoot a few geese.  If you have a hard freeze, you won't see very many geese, if any.

You got that right.  Below is for NC on the resident population.

Season dates for the early goose season are the same as last year. 15 daily, 1/2 hour after sunset, electronic calls, unplugged gun. It starts 1 Sept and goes to 30 Sept.

15 per day and an unplugged gun! We have a problem with them staying!!!

But they are sure GOOD Eating!

Found that out while stationed in ND.  The wife even learned how to skin them and use bacon to roast as I kept bringing them home.

Attached picture is in NC, Dare County near Lake Mattamuskeet when I was assigned to Dare County Bombing/Gunnery Range USAF in 78.
