Goose City!

7 posts in this topic

I'd never been to Rochester before until my girlfriend started PT school there this fall. This morning I was driving home north on 52 and all I can say is WOW, there were geese everywhere. They were on both sides of the highway as far back in the corn fields as I could see and the sky was full of them too! I kept waiting to see some dropping out of the sky but didn't see or hear anyone shooting. Why is that?? To sum it up guess I'm just jealous of the number of geese you have in this area. Good luck to all hunting them.

Tippman,

I moved up to Oronoco and was sick of seeing them flying over so I finally got off my butt and asked permission to hunt the field behind my house. Guy was perfectly fine with it. Since it is by some houses, I introduced myself to the closest ones and explained what I would be doing and that the 500 foot minumum distance would be followed.

Here are the results

Gotta eat some since I got one Wed night also and now I have my posession limit in the freezer. Maybe give some to my buddy to smoke.

So many geese passed/missed also. First time out in 9 years but the convenience of hunting right behind my house was just too much to pass up.

You like my real hardwoods camo for hunting in the corn field? I should probably go get some different stuff.

Hey Tippman...I know that this is a bit off topic, but I was wondering if you could tell me more about your girlfriends PT school (at the clinic I assume). I plan on going back to school shortly and PT is what I was leaning towards. Please send me an email to chaddjurg@hotmail.com

Thanks,

Chad

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
