Pinfeathers yes,  but there are a lot flying around chip lake, where I live, and they will be good shooting practice.

I like to hunt the first 1/2 of the season for practice wingshooting and for the frying pan,  Come the 2nd week of october, i start shooting for mature drake birds only.

I am looking forward to it. My son just graduated and I am looking for a nice goose hunt for him. He wants to shoot a Big Canadian goose and when I use to drive a truck over the road I remember alberta had some nice geese but  from louisiana that is one heck of a drive. I think he better look closer but where the heck to you get a canadian.
But duck season is always good here.. Should be a great season from what they are saying. good luck to all
