Rustle, rustle, rustle(sound of atlas being looked at to figure out where north of Appleton is). Squeal, squeal, squeal(sound of rigs heading that way). They have that cheap intensive harvest permit and their gonna get some. Good luck to all.

Here is another report. Go west of Ivanhoe about 5 to 7 miles or so. There is a WMA on the north side of 19 that has a nice size body of water on it. It was covered with snows and blues today (in the morning and the afternoon.) They were there on Friday as well and were working a picked corn field in a WMA to the east. I would not recommend this to anybody outside the Ivanhoe area. One blast at those birds, and they will be gone. And be careful how you approach them. Do not let them see you leave your car or sneaking up on them. And one more careful note, there are quite a few specklebellys with them. But there are a enough snows for a good, quick shoot if you play it right.

Well, they were still there this morning. They were landing in a corn field to the east of the WMA. Basically right across the road. If someone wants some SOBs, and lives in the Marshall/Ivanhoe area, go get 'em. A guy who sets up in that ditch between the geese and the water will have some opportunities.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.
