Early goose opened the first along with dove,got geese 1/4 mi behind house but no permission. Early woody/teal opens this Sat. Gonna have to get up early to hit the secret spot that’s not so secret anymore, to beat the others there. Gap in the trees right next to the Fed. refuge. They blow through there like rocket ships.
Naw, its cheaper to go to the thrift store get the plain white ones and a can of black spray paint and some old welding rods that got damp. No marking on the thrift store bags. They get them from the mfg. (seconds) for free. LOL!
The weather here the last week has pushed nearly all of the geese back south. Supposed to be in the 40’s starting this weekend. Hopefully this is winters last gasp! That will bring them back north in droves. 3 weeks ago, there were probably half a million around Reelfoot, last weekend, maybe 10K. The dumb ones.
Agreed. Excellent job. Reading Bradley’s article reminded me of an old trapper friend at Reelfoot. Coming to the boat ramp with his traps bounty of the day, the local GW checked him and finding everything in order asked him “how did you get the hole in the bow of your boat?” John replied, ” a cottonmouth fell off a limb into the boat and I shot it”. Shooting snakes being illegal in Tn. GW wrote him a ticket. John proceeded to court on the assigned date and when called before the judge was asked “How do you plead?” John replied “Not guilty, your Honor”. The judge asked him how he figured he wasn’t guilty? John simply replied ” Self defense”. Judge gavelled down, ” Case dismissed”.
