REMEMBER---the adult DOES NOT GET TO CARRY A GUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last year I heard people bragging on waterfowler.com about shootin the $*^# outta the ducks with their kids and all these people tryin to find a kid to take hunting so they could hunt a weekend early.. even if your goose hunting you cannot have a gun..
Its for the kids.. dont take advantage of it

It is just Saturday right?I could shoot geese again on Sunday?

My daughter is a little too young yet to handle a shot gun, so I been taking her out with me while I hunt so she can see what it's all about.

But if I can't do the shooting on Sunday ,maybe I will have to buy a .410 and some Bismuth for her on Sunday.

Benny,

Youth day is Saturday only. You can hunt Geese on Sunday as part of the early goose season. Your daughter can hunt with you on Sunday but only as a goose hunter.

Enjoy!

Have you found Bismuth for the .410? If so, where, I am interested and getting some as well!

I am thinking that you can goose hunt like normal on Saturday. But you can't have your kid taking part of the Youth Day. You can treat Saturday the same as the other days of early goose.

jlm, I have not seen any myself.I just heard it is the only non steel non toxic load out there for the .410.

I bet you could find it at Fleet farm or sportsmans wherehouse.

Gander is to cheap to carry .410 loads.

Yep.. goose hunting goes on like normal today and the youth season ends at 4 pm today, it does NOT go through tomorrow.. thats another thing alot of people thought it was all weekend, i saw people out pothole jumping last year on sunday..

i dont understand how people cant figure this out.. if you dont know the laws you shouldnt even be out hunting.. get the regs and READ EM!!

I live in the Grand Rapids area and stopped at Glen's Army Navy store inquiring about .410 steel shot. They said it usually runs about $40 a box. I just bought my daughter a single shot .20 gauge to use for duck hunting. A buddy of mine that's a hard core duck hunter said he used to kill alot of ducks with his .410 when he was a kid. The biggest thing was to pattern the gun and realize the effective range of it.

Last year I wanted to take my son duck hunting with the 410. Big disappointment to find out the only non toxic load was bismuth....$49/ box of 10!!!!!!!
He shot squirrels again, this year graduating to a 20 ga.

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
