1 band out of 96?

Well that's not so bad like some people get it. We've started to shoot bands this year and one last year where me and the guys have been hunting for the last 5 years! Before that we had 0 for I don't know 250-300 geese.

Good job, keep grindin' em!

Yeah I usually don't get too excited about jewelry, just this year because a group of guys I know got 5 bands and a neck collar in 1 hunt outta the same general area I've been hunting all early season. I couldn't believe it til I saw the picture.

Quack way to stack them up!!! You must know Cory???? Lots of DRC?? He used to hunt with us up around Warroad.... We have managed to stack up 227 so far this year with 3 bands kinda low band count considering the area. To all of you guys who wonder what we do with hundreds of geese. I personally smoke 75% of mine, best way to use them up. I usually give away most of them to the farmers along with walleye, and eat the rest. Once its processed "SMOKED, CANED, JERKEY...." no longer part of your possesion limit.

I hope you are not over your posession limit grin I'll have to try the smoked goose, never tried that. But boy, you guys have shot a ton of geese lol, keep whackin' and stackin'!

Yea I know Cory and he did hunt around Warroad quite a bit in the past years.

Yea quack Cory hunted with us 65% of the time when he was up here. You might remember the War Wagon pics of us with the Polaris ranger with mat tracks!! It was a sweet rig. We failed to get our limit for the first time this year today. We had a freshly swated barley field this morning Yea Barley.. really late up here with some of the crops. managed 13 for 2 guys and 2 kids shooting 410's we would let the geese land so they could ground pound them. lol not very sporting but at 7 and 9 years old who cares. We got our 10 but the little ones struggled lots of shooting and lol!!!!

Another comment on the goose numbers. You would be surprised how easy it is to get rid of alot of goose meat. Between family and friends it goes fast. Smoked goose sticks with cheese is the BEST hands down, delicious! The ultimate ice fishing, and hunting snack.

Saturday morning some of us took youths out for duck hunting, hunted geese in the evening shot 5 more.

This morning shot 25 more for 4 guys, 1 gal and 2 bands. No pictures, I was having some difficulties with my camera so I'll try to get some pics from the guys I hunted with today. Looking forward to Waterfowl Opener- the Ducks are thick!

Hey Quack keep up the good work and hope to someday join you on a hunt. You guys really got it down and what ever you do dont stop cause I for one love to see all the pics and stories that go along with the hunt. early goose season was implimented for thinning the flock and you guys are or seem to do a great job of it.

I don't have any pictures to share but we ended the season with 10 more birds this past weekend. Total for the early goose season for our group is 41 birds.

Headed to Saskatchewan Friday morning. I am trying to get the knots out of my stomach. We are going to a new area and I am nervous to say the least. Just talked with the hotel we are staying at and they are seeinf lots of birds.

I'll post again when I return.

Zeek- no we don't do guided hunts but we could if we really wanted to. I don't like the idea of Leasing fields if need to, its more to be out with friends and enjoy this time of the month!

Snow- Saskatchewan will be a blast! I've always wanted to go there! Freelancing or guides? Good luck and post pics when you get back!

Oh for the kids "Team DRC" put down 25 more and 2 bands yesterday morning (its what its all bout fellas!) wink It will be aired on Focus Outdoors later in June.

Hey Quack

We freelance in Canada. I don't see any reason to have a guide up there. Permission is much easier to get in Canada. Most farmers want the birds off of their fields and I am more than willing to help them out.

just curious, some have guides some don't. I have never had problem getting permission here in MN...guess it's just where I hunt.

Here are some pictures from last Sunday.

      Nice fish!  I was out near mille lacs area and the frog bite was killing it. Had a handful in the 17-20” range. 
    • Muskies
      It’s been a good summer so far. Of course, fishing always good but the boat traffic is down 75-80%. Drive out, pick a reef and start jigging!. Hopefully everyone can enjoy all parts of rainy next summer. Picture is from my wife and I Monday afternoon (August 3).Caught a total of 20 walleyes, 10 perch. We kept 6 slot fish for supper.
    • cgreene
      Great catch! I love fishing while raining. The just enjoy spending time in a lake with cool weather.
    • Mtnman
      Thanks for the update Muskies. Making preparations to head north in 3 weeks. We are so looking forward to cooler weather and the song of the loon. Love those pictures, keep them coming. Cheers and good fishing !! 
    • rayguy
      Was up this past week and fishing was really slow.  Trolled deep from Big Island to Foleys and back with one Northern the results.  Really was not a whole lot suspended in the 50+ water. There is no way to fish middle Whitefish on the weekend.  Every pontoon in the world now ties up around the sand dune island and the boat traffic is unreal.  Looks like Minnatonka ,  not a good thing. Did get a few small walleyes on leeches early morning , nothing to brag about.  Keep a eye out ,   lots of crazies out there.  Think the Sheriff needs to hit the lake for a few days to settle the Windsor crowd down a little.  
    • ozzie
      Anyone use the access at Trout Lake on the Whitefish Chain?  If so have you had issues with turning around in the parking lot due to the inspector parking in the no parking zone that is marked off with yellow lines?  I get into arguments every time I am at that access because the inspector feels they have the right to park in an area that is not to be parked in.  It is becoming annoyingly fun for me to get on them and educate them on where to not park!  This has to be one of the worst accesses in the state when it comes to traffic, space, and inspectors.  Many times they have an inspector there that will give you a 15 minute lecture on invasives even though you have heard his speech before!!!  Power trip and then some!!!!  I respect most inspectors I come into contact with, but WOW are some just go a little overboard on their inspection.  I have to laugh my ass off when the inspector runs us over about water in our livewell (talking about drops of water around the drain ring) saying we could get fined $800 if we leave the access like that, yet what do the inspectors say to the wake boat that pumped in 1000 gallons of water into it and most certainly cannot dispel all the water and an inspector cannot see!!  Not sure what it is about this particular access but I have had the worst experiences there and do not have similar experiences elsewhere, so I just had to ask if other see this too.
