Right off the bat we had a pair of snow geese drop right into the spread and with a little extra coaxing from Shawn’s mouth call, the birds dropped right into our lap. As Shawn gave the “Take Em” command, the pit flaps dropped as well as the geese. We had our first birds of the day. My little chessy Jada and Shawn’s lab Molly Cornflake tag teamed on a beautiful double retrieve.
In minutes we were back to business as scanes of geese could now be seen across the entire horizon. As the morning progressed we had numerous singles and doubles circle the spread and ultimately commit into the decoy spread. After the mornings hunt was over we had 11 birds in hand.
Now after spending the morning in the blind and talking to a couple of Shawn’s regular clients, I found that last spring in this same field they harvested 138 snow geese on the first day of their hunt and 98 snow geese on their second days hunt- truly amazing!
