Cloudy, Light Rain & Drizzle – 30-34 Degrees – Open Water
Hunted 1/8 for Canadas down along the shore in Fairfield County. Got a couple and a common merg.
The strangest part of the day is that we were checked not once, but TWICE by DEP officers!

Oh well, guess I’m glad they’re out there.

Good luck to all and hunt safe.

Went out for another goose trip today in the corn fields. Action was sporatic with birds that would work the spread. Easy to tell that the birds have just about seen it all and have been heavily pressured! Shot a 6 man limit and finished with 3 bands. Overall a good day.

Have made three trips so far.

Slaid the geese with SOD but haven’t had a
duck come anywhere near me yet.
MM is in a “family way” (more accurately Mrs.MM is)so we may not hear much from him this season.
Come to think about it we don’t hear much from anyone on this site anymore.
There was a whole lot more chatter back when it was “Free”……Remember?

Spent the day scouting for ducks in Eastern CT…….Don’t bother. Go chase Bambi and the ringneck chickens. Numbers were terrible for this time of year. Biggest group of birds seen were 6 hooded mergs on one of the rivers. Hopefully we will get some cold weather SOON!

Chasing geese again on Saturday. It was almost a waste of time. We heard 5 other parties on Saturday morning an most of the birds didn’t want to have anything to do with anyone! Almost all of the groups did scratch down a bird or two but the overall numbers were depressing and the few that are there have OBVIOUSLY been pounded! Elected to only shoot at committed birds and got 4. Watched another group educating everybird that flew by. Poor day overall.

Went out for the opening day of Goose instead of duck hunting due to the DISMAL scouting for ducks. Good move. After a long morning and lots of uncooperative birds we limited out with 8 birds.

Day 2 Better forcast so we went out with hope of more cooperative birds. If they were there we could not see them in all of the fog. Wind never materialized so things were still difficult. Still managed to scratch down enough birds to pull off another limit. Looked mostly like local birds that have been shot hard. Need some weather to push some new birds in!

Day 3 Happy Turkey Day!

Cloudy, Heavy Fog – 60-65 Degrees
Rough day but was still productive. Had 6 geese and two ducks on the ground by 0800. Very rough to see most of the birds as it was too foggy. Didn’t sound like there were too many birds around either. Your probably better off chasing ducks anyway right now

The birds are moving and now is a good time to shoot with a camera and do some post season scouting for next year.

Anyone doing any good with South Zone late season geese? My spots are pretty much frozen solid. Not looking for locations, just whether others are getting out or not?
Good luck and stay warm to those who are going out!
