    You know it.
    He snuck us til about 50 yards then got a little skidish. Then a load of 3 inch 2s buzzed his tower and he made a dead run right at us. Big mistake on his part

    You sure stunk up those geese with that mangey coyote.
    I go out of my way to kill them.

    Nice shoot on the snows.

    Honestly Danny im not sure which stunk worse. Those snow geese definately have a different funk to them. Different than any other bird I have killed

    I haven't been around a lot of snows to smell, but I have been around to many coyotes.
    They can turn your stomach in side out.

    The snows have been flying over the house for the last 1/2 hour.
    Looks like they are coming off the river[east[ and headed WNW.

    Anybody having any luck? Its a ghost town outside of Canton, a little further west and it sounds like there are some. We need some new ones. Sun and south wind is needed badly!

    No luck here.
    I hunted Saturday outside of Litchfield. Saw one small flock of 10 catching the last train out of town.
    Packed up early and scouted for 2 hours. We never saw anything. Hoping it's not over.:pra

    I keep seeing pictures of small pockets of young birds in LA, AK and Texas. There has to more to come, we just need the right weather and its not really looking good.
