  4. 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.

    We're still 2 months out. :'(
     
  6. Wednesday here in Alaska too...just have to anchor a couple of Moose first.
     
  7. Thursday, early goose, then teal on sunday. Might go :-\
     
  8. 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

    Man I only live 100 miles away from there and the birds here still suck until Nov. What a difference that 100 miles must make . ::)
