Hello all. I'm new to the sport of goose hunting and looking for some help. I've been hunting in Cumberland County, around Mt. Holly Springs. My buddy and I have had minimal success. We're looking for some places to go in Central and Southern PA that will net us some results. Is is to early in the year to expect to net a bunch of birds. Been out 5 times and we've netted one bird. I feel like a disappointment to my dog. She just sits there and waits for something to fall, so she can go to work. Haven't had any work for her so far. Looking for some places to go to kill some birds. Don't want to step on anyone's feet or intrude in the special spot, but can anyone help?

We've been hunting in clover fields. We've also hunted in fresh cut corn. Only been in the corn once, been mostly in the clover. We are set up approx. 30yrds from a small pond. We've seen the birds there recently but just not when we're their. We have approx. 12 sheel decoys, 3 wind socks, a flying goose, and 12 silhoutes. We are looking to get some more decoys. We've also been using a black flag. The geese are flying up from a close by pond and then flying to the fresh cut corn fields. We just can't get them to turn from the corn and come to us. Any suggestions?

yeah set up in the fields, and with early season here u dont need a big spread. several callers will help, how many guys are using calls in your group? also if u monitor the flocks u can usually get theyre times down when they like to fly. cuts down on how much time u have to lay in the blinds maybe. here in my area u can almost set your watch in the morning when the geese leave the local quarrys to head out and feed. 8 am almost to the minute unless its foggy then u can add a hour lol. good luck
