We have a few geese here but most are safe from hunters. [Linked Image]

... that sounds like a great way to get crapped on



Oh you do. When a mass like that comes in itís like swirling tornado above slowly lowering down. The noise is incredible. The sound system and hand calls canít be heard. You try to let as many as possible land before going into action. Iíve never pulled the string on that, Rob does and when his gun goes off itís go time. He always takes first shot towards the center of the spread so all can hear it and itís barely heard over the din.
I lay there a couple years ago under one of those masses and a snow was literally standing on my legs and another I brushed his feet when I grabbed beside me for the shotgun. Insane noise with one 12Ē to your right squawking away.
The hardest part is focusing on one bird down the barrel while others are flashing across in between and the entire background is swirling with birds. Hunting snows is crazy fun.
For you guys who may go, you wonít find a harder working outfit. He is very successful because of good gear, good local relationships, and good spotters working every day for you. Those snows are bunching and staging mid Sask after funneling down from the arctic nesting grounds. There are also canadas, cranes, and every imaginable duck as well.
He has a terrific cleaning set up, you set up a cleaning line and rip thru bunches of birds in a hurry. You need to. Plenty of deep freeze freezers and as said what you donít take home helps out the local food banks.
As a reference the drive is 12 hours from the Minneapolis area.

Flu is killing them now I can see a dozen sick or dead snows/blues and 50+ that stayed back today when the main flights went out itís going to be a mess again. I lost 12 of my chickens in 3 days waiting for the test to come back to tell me what I already know.

He still talks about that day 15 years later, lol. He was all of 10 maybe.

I posted these pics before, but this thread reminded me of the chaos and noise about 50 yards outside my house. Can't get any sleep, can't hear the TV without turning it up high, and when they're through stomping and eating every blade of grass and wheat, they leave a barren mudhole! I hate 'em! mad
