A discussion forum surrounding Kansas goose hunting from in and around the state of KS.
Well, it's been an interesting season to say the least. Up here in the north half we didn't see many birds before Christmas. Our usual opener at a local lake didn't happen. Ended up in central Ks where boy did we have a good time. Only shot one canada but the snows and specks were awesome! 3 days of hunting gave us 3 limits of specks and a bunch of snows.
Around Christmas we started seeing canadas up here but with the nice weather they never left the refuge. At a lake we seldom see specks we got limits again! It wasn't until Jan 16th I finally got into some mallards. High winds made them search for calm water and I found it. 5 drakes in less than 5 minutes. Danged short hunt. Still no canadas. The 18th we finally got the big birds as they have eaten everything off the refuge. A limit of 6 came from 3 flocks that decoyed almost too easy!
Yesterday a friend and and traveled east to find several thousand geese using an open hole in ice on a huge lake. Most land there was leased or posted. We did notice that birds would fly down the lake and more than a few passed over a point at almost head high. we took a 3/4mile hike in and had a blast. Two limits of canadas and 8 snows later we called it a day. To see that many birds pass right over head was awe inspiring to say the least. Even got to do a good deed by retrieving a bird for an older gentleman. He hit the bird about a half mile from us and I watched it crash behind us. Told my buddy I was going to take him his bird because I only keep what I shoot. His smile was priceless!!
Get em boys!!!

Best goose year ever. Ducks were a different story.
To make a mistake is human. To blame it on someone else shows your management potential.
