I am lucky enough to live smack dab between 5 different Lakes/Ponds. They all hold Geese at one time of the season or another. In between them is corn/alph alpha/oats in different locations. I always have some geese in my area. I've noticed that when I go outside and give a call or 2 that I can usually get them off the lake and into the air within about 5 minutes. Is this uncommon? Any one else have a similar ability or situation? Just curious? Oh and one more topic if you care to add a comment, I have some older Flameau's that could use a touchup or two. Any suggestions would be welcome unless your B-Unit!!!!
We have had them come off a pond and sweep into us for us calling, but I don't think they will come off because your calling. They heard us once in a while and came to investigate when they decided to leave the spot they were in.
I was thinking this to be more of the case, I'm just trying to understand them a little better as to become a more effective goose getter.. I don't think that I can get them off the roost with my magic call ( I'm not bad for a beginner so I'm told). I've just found that when I call, more often than not, I get flyovers and the occational circle. I was also wondering if you may have thought this to be a territorial issue. Someone is stealing my cheese kind of thing for them???
You definetly do not have the wrong idea..............We hunt resident geese a lot also ,and YES we have got them up and off the water by calling for a few min .Nobody belived me either untill I showed them .If they are close enough to hear 2 or 3 guys calling they will leave the water much sooner than if you didnt call at all.Try It!
