    Default Smoked them

    Was out on the flats from thursday around noon to sunday around noon came out with 24 also the friend I was with did the same. Looked to be a lot of birds moving in. I was done in 2 hours on sat.. Saw quiet a few large flocks some I would guess in the 500 or more.

    Allen, it has been awesome and will continue with this colder weather. I'm not much of a goose hunter, but we sure have put the hurting on ducks and swans. Almost everyone in our group is filled up on swans and the ducks.....man the ducks.

    2 guys, 40 ducks

    Sept 15-17
    2 guys, 60 ducks

    Sept 23-24

    Our weather changed last Friday. Daytime temps have been in the mid 40's and we have had frost almost every morning. I'm in Bethel.

    Yes, but not as good as Cranes.

    I agree with Allen.

    Cranes are better, but harder to get out here.

    I like to take my swans, crock pot them with some beef broth until it all falls apart and off the bones. I then put it on buns with some horseradish and mustard and eat it like hot beef. It is delicious!
