We didn't have a bad season, not as good as last year.....167 geese 98 ducks. I think 2 goose bands and 3 ducks bands this year.

we didnt do too bad this year. killed just under 400 geese most of them were snows. prolly only shot about 50 ducks this year. ended up w/ only 3 bands one a neck band though. still waiting to get the info back on them. shot a neck banded speck last year that was banded in anchorage, alaska that was banded in 1993 so he'd made it down the flyway many times anyway hope everyone else had some good times this year

I feel rather sheepish right about now. We killed 24 geese and 17 mallards this year....Our best season in three years. O how sad it is!
That is better then we did, well we had a good average. We just didn't get out enough. The 3 times it was out with just my dad (he doesn't know much about goose hunting, but he loves to shoot them. He tells me, "you know everything about this so just tell me where to set up and put the decoys") we killed 6 geese and he got 2 ducks. The other times I went out (3-4 times), I went with my know it all grandfather :roll: . He really knows nothing at all and we shot nothing. :x :roll: If we went across the field a little more where I said, we would have had a lot more shooting. Next year is the year. 8)

Thats amazing between me, my dad, and my buddy we didnt make double digits. I know that sounds sad but it was the first year we field goose hunted. We used to duck hunt all the time but when we picked up bowhunting it got pushed back. Then last year we started up again, I shot 4 geese, my dad shot one and my buddy shot 3. We only got shooting on 3 different days. (we slacked on the scouting part.) Im hoping for 50 next year.

Thats deffinetly not a bad year. Thats great if you were doing most of your hunting during the regular season(1 bird a day) I wish it were more but we have to do our part in consevation so we'll have to live with it.

I wish it was all numbers from the WI regular season. It included a 5 day trip to Saskatchewan and a couple of great early season outings.

Still not bad at all. Did you see the numbers of geese in Saskatchewan that they always show in the vids i mean by the thousands?? Do you hunt with a guide when you take your trips up there?
