Finally made it out this year for the light geese hunt in SD. We didn't do very well but i did shoot my first. I shot three and my partner shot three. Three in as many days..not too good but I had a blast anyways. We learned alot..mostly what not to do, but hey you gotta start someowhere.

We started out by Lake Preston area..then the last day gassed up the truck and went up to the big refuge .. Sand Lake I think. Did alot of scouting but it didn't really pay off this time. I think we would have been better off just finding some better fields right where we were. Oh well, live and learn.

Good work. I told myself I would go this year but it just never worked out. Next year there will be no excuses. Good to see your successes. Maybe next spring we need to host an event for FMers to get a bunch of people (and decoys) out there.

So, are you addicted to this wonderful chase? grin.gif Congrats on some birds, they are fun and difficult to hunt.

I just returned from 4 days afield in Nodak. Lots of birds in the north half of ND...how was Sodak's population of birds?

There were still plenty of birds around we just werent in the right spots..oh well. The week earlier I was actually working in Watertown...now if I only would have been prepared...that was the week to be there. Geese everywhere, they sure moved through fast. Next year baby. It was still a blast, never seen more and different kinds of ducks in one spot, awesome. May have to make a trip this fall.

Ironman nice job! I am originally from Waseca and hadn't shot a snow goose until this year. Man they are not by any means an easy bird to hunt so don't feel bad about killing six! Thats pretty darn good for going cold turkey on your firt trip. I think between me and my buddies who are also rookies we have killed around 200 this spring which isn't a fraction of what we should have killed. They are sure fun to rip into at about ten yards though!

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
