Well all, J.L. and I hooked up for our first meeting and hunt together. To say it was productive and enjoyable is an understatement. My buddy Andy stopped in to join the action. Collectively, we agreed that we saw somewhere in the neighborhood of 800 to 1000 geese, probably that many ducks, and a few snows. When I say "saw", I mean they wanted in our field. Insane! I showed up just before 3:00 pm to set decoys and get the blinds around. When I pulled into the field a flock of probably 40 mallards was already working the field. J.L. and Andy would join me a little after 3:30. I had just dumped everything in one big pile, pulled the truck out of the field and walked back to start setting the 5 dozen Big Feet when I was covered up with geese. As I set dekes I had birds trying to land on me! I was just finishing things up when I see J.L. pull up. He's scrambling to get into the field while I take a couple shots at birds (bad shooting on my part). J.L. no sooner gets in the field and Andy is pulling in across the road. J.L. and I shake hands and we immediately dive into the blinds as a huge flock is barreling in on us. I dumped on honker out of the bunch. I made the long trek to get my bird and I look back and see Andy and J.L. shaking hands. I hit the deck, they dive into the blinds, and here comes another large flock of honkers. They dropped two birds. 3 birds down and it was only 3:40! On the way back on my retrieve I took a pop shot at a couple snows, but didn't touch a feather. I just get back to the blinds and we are hunkered down again for another flock. I dropped a bird out of that flock. About 5 minutes later another flock and J.L. and Andy drop a bird each. We had our goose limit before 4:00!:yikes: So we hunkered down to hunt snows and mallards. At one point we had a couple honkers almost land on J.L. and cuddle up in the blind with him. We had ample opportunities at mallards, but we kept passing them up for closer shots. We finally shot at one group, but somehow 9 shot shells rang out and no birds fell. We did see a few more snows too. The snow was flying and the birds were in our face, just incredible action. Total blast! Here's the pictures. The gang. Left to right.
