Decoys are ready.
Boat is ready.
Licenses are bought.
Blinds have been inspected, with wasps removed.
Geese are using the hunting area.
It's looking good, but I hope it cools off here!

We get Sept. 1-25, but there's no Sunday hunting and Vriginia, being a conservative stick in the mud, adopted none of the council's recommendations on raised limits or extended hours.
5 per day, until sunset.

My better half is getting mad at me for having all of my gear laid out in a whole bedroom for around a month now. She says it's crazy....I say it's necessary to check the gear a few times before season starts. :D

I have been out scouting the last few mornings and I'm a little disappointed thus far with the goose numbers. The biggest flock we have seen is approx. 20 honkers. We secured 2 areas of private land to hunt and found another 2 on public land that we'll jump on. Our early season opens this Friday.......getting anxious now.

We took 4 opening morning. Not very many birds around, but hopefully the migs will be here soon. Saw a lot of ducks, though. A good number of teal and woodies. Good luck gents, and be careful.

Yesterday AM was a little too tropical stormy for me.
Went out in the afternoon and pinpointed about 50 going into a roosting spot.
Got two this morning, but I'll be waiting on them to come back this evening.
Saw perhaps 100 or so altogether this AM.

Our group of 5 people killed 18 geese on Labor Day and then got out of there quickly so we could hunt it again in the near future. It was some fast shooting with groups of 10-20 dive bombing us for about 20 minutes. Here's some pictures of the pile.

Well, Im glad your guys openers went better then mine. I hunted three days and never even fired a shot, and only saw one goose the entire time. :( I did go on a open day dove hunt and almost shot my daily limit, so I still had fun.

Headed up to wyoming for the early season, 2 bird limit we did pretty well.

I'm glad that someone is getting them. Our numbers are way down from past years. I haven't shot a bird since opening day. :(
