One unlucky snow goose poked his head up at about 300 yards out in a plowed field across from the spread which gave me an opportunity to let my dog Jada make a fantastic blind retrieve. She made me quite the proud papa after that retrieve, that was for sure.
Adam then shared with us that the action would be pretty slow until usually around 3:30 in the afternoon and gave us the option of sitting in the spread or heading back for a bite to eat in town. Knowing how long the days tend to get in the spring I elected to head in with Adam for a hot lunch and a short nap in the truck before getting prepared for the evening hunt.
At about 5:00 pm the geese started raining out across the horizon again and we were ready for them. As the birds started cycloning over Adam’s massive spread, this time he elected to let them come in even closer then in the mornings hunt until the first 200 geese actually touched down! Let me tell you it was all I could do to keep my blind lid closed as we had close to 1,000 snow geese within 25 yards. As I pulled up I could hardly pick out one bird to shoot at. Not more then 20 minutes later we had another swarm over our heads. And again Adam was able to land close to 250 geese before we took fire.
