  • Palmer Hay Flats / Geese?

    Hello all! Has anyone seen any geese down on the flats yet? Heard a flock yesterday and saw a group of swans. Man it was foggy as heck out there!

    You must go a different place I do. I've never seen geese down there. It's all marsh down where I go (off Hay Field), and geese tend to like grassier places. In any case, I haven't been there this year at all, so I really don't have anything constructive to add anyway... sorry
    My signature is awesome.

      Heard some the other night. Only big birds I saw were cranes, the hight those birds were didn't stop the shooting, all left in the same groups they arrived in.

        Thanks GR. We hunt south of the Knik bridge across from the flats. Have seen plenty of geese in the past just not yet this year. Headed out this am.

            Think Im going to set up on the river this year again south of the bridge and give it another try. Maybe find a sand bar or oxbow down there. Tried the river downstream of the bridge last year, just could never get to where they were flying by to see the decoys. played the move left/right game on them for a few days and never connected. one day..it will happen.

                        I've yet to score a goose in the flats. I know of a few lucky people who have. Gotta figure out a better spot to try and find one at.
