    Read the above, very interesting, sorry I missed it. Also comments in the last paragraph about the weather change. Our season is just about over. Hope you all had a good one. Bud

    One of, if not the most favorite sounds in the world for me, is geese flying overhead.....

    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    This explains a lot, went out this morning and an area holding hundreds of Geese was down to one flock of 20 or so and a small group of 4 none of which I could get into gun range.

    crazy that it happens so fast. I really want to get one more hunt in but if I dont I have had a freaking awesome season. A big thanks to duckhunter01 on that who showed me some valuable stuff and took me out for some of the best shoots I may get to experience.

    They haven't changed this event in a long time. When I first came up here in the 80's, we hunted out on the flats every weekend until they left. I could almost set a clock to them leaving every year. Always, the weekend after the Presidents day weekend, we would find ourselves covered up by geese on the Saturday, hear them all night long, then be staring at blue sky and tweety birds on that Sunday. Mid Oct, clear weather and a north breeze, and they are gone. They are still on schedule it appears.

    I saw that same flock. Must've been a thousand or more. Pretty impressive.
