I am hunting resident geese in eastern NC and asd you all know Hurricane Jeanne is on its way. It is kicking Floridas butt right now. Any way, with the rain and wind that we are expecting mainly on Monday afternoon and Tuesday. Will the geese basically hole up for a day or so, and if so will that make hunting them Wed. and Thurs. a good bet. I got into the goose hunting scene just this year so I am learning as I go. Any info would help.

If it is raining hard the geese usually stay where they are all day. The wind may make them seek smaller bodies of water. The rule here is if it rains hard we stay home, cause nothing wants to fly in it.

Thanks for the info. Monday afternoon is going to be a washout. Tuesday we are xpecting rain and wind all day, so maybe Wed we will get to hunt some really hungry geese. We are hunting a peanut field that has been dug but not picked. We have had several good hunts this season, and a couple where we struck out. If I have learned only one thing this year ti is that my hunting buddies and I need to invest in some good decoys.

I've had some good hunts in the rain, but nothign like a hurricane and even if you did hunt in the wind and rain, they wouldn't hear your calling or see the dekes anyways

We hunted this afternoon. The weather never really came like it was forcasted. We saw over two hundred reisident birds in a corn field yesterday afternoon. The birds were using this field more in the afternoon so we went today. They flew in about an hour befor legal time expired. Nine birds for four hunters. A decent hunt to say the least. It was my last resident hunt for the year. Tomorrow is the last day and I have to work. Thanks for the info.

Me and one other guy went out right as hurricane Ivan was over WV.Now I know it really wasnt a hurricane but we got really bad, rainy weather from where it was breaking up.we both got our limits.The birds will fly in bad weather, but they will fly really late.the birds didnt even start flying untill 10:00.Dont ever let bad weather keep u home,most of the time it will end up being a great hunt if you are patient
