    I agree, it was a good call on Snowalker' side. Having a Chef prepare all the sausages and the boar was a particular treat! The meat came out just perfect.

    And even though we didn't get to see 1000's of geese, it was a great weekend with an amazing group of people and a whole bunch of mentoring. 100% would do it again once the ducks open!

    No problem on not letting me know there were no geese. I didn't get in touch either.

    It was nice to hang out and shoot the breeze while enjoying some coffee.

    I did mean to ask you about cleaning the birds though. Do you pluck or skin them there or take them home at the end of the day/weekend and do it?

    Thanks for the kind words....best part of the weekend was just being around others that want to learn and exchange ideas.

    I hope Alex is not hurting too bad from the midnight attack. He is still recovering from a major accident on his bike. He is a lot stronger now then he was on the trip last year.

    Hope to drag him out to a few more this year.

    Maybe you should just have him plan the menu.

    Best bet is bring them home whole. If we are eating onsite, then breast and legs for geese. Breast for geese, I slice into strips and soak in milk to draw the blood out. Then fry up in a stir fry, depending on cooler temp, you can marinate and eat at supper same night in camp. Duck, peppercorn red wine reduction for breasts, yum yum. Could go on a late Chanterelle and make a mushroom gravy for duck breast with fresh oregano, topped with fresh parsley all picked locally.

    I want to thank Snowwalker for being patient and providing transportation and much of the gear for me. He has been the very first person to take me out hunting from this forum, and i'm glad that a few years down the road he still is tolerating me and my behaviour, and doesn't mind making a detour to pick me up.


    Line052, thank you for being a fantastic host. You kept everyone entertained, and engaged despite lacking birds. You were providing valuable information and coaching. It really shows that you are trying to build a community, and are more then willing to provide mentorship. I respect that, thank you for doing this. I am also super pleased that Snowwalker was able to arrange me joining you all even with the last minute notice. I had fun cooking all the meat, but i think you highly exaggerate my abilities. Also, i have yet to shoot an actual goose, so i'm looking forward to learning how to cook 'em .
    Everyone who showed up was really great, and brought something to the table: literally and figuratively.


    I had a fantastic time. Let's do this again. I'm hoping i can come out to the duck opener, if there is a ride from Toronto. That spot seems like it would be productive for that. And let's hope that the water levels come up.

    It has been a great pleasure to meet many people from this forum in person, and share some stories around the fire.

    That pass shooting spot that Chris showed us.
    There were 5 more hunters, most showed up ... about 30 minutes after the sunrise. Nothing was flying after.

    Also, i need a call. Any recommendations?

    One that works......for you. Not me, not the sales guy...you. And go out and learn from the birds, watch the dvd but listen and learn from the birds.
