I like your style.bighonker said:Here around where we hunt we don't hunt over water. We have seen people doing it and the next day there were no geese.
I dont know why people hunt geese in the water anyway. Why would you want to wade through 2 foot of mud in leaky waders when you could be in a comfortable field chair waiting for them to come in.
I would hunt the field they are feeding in as I would be able to shoot more birds that way. Find the field and set up exactly where they were the night before and chances are they will come right back to same spot and nail 'em in the morning. Watch them for a few days for their new pattern and hit them again, and so on. After a few weeks I would think that you should have them thinned out pretty good. And if the pond owner does not want the geese there explain your plan to him and that at the tail end you will hunt the pond. And best way to do that is wait until after they leave for the fields to feed and then set up your decoys and when they come back from feeding mid morning--they should glide right on in point blank. Remember that hunting the same flcok day after day will push them out the area, so hunt them no more than twice a week, that way they generally will stick around. Good luck.Live to Hunt & Fish said:I have a really big pond and there are usually at least 50 geese on it. Do you think I should hunt it even if it is a roost? Or just hunt a feild nearby?
