    Default Looks like a soft goose opener

    With another scorcher today (hopefully the last) hard to get excited for the opener. May curtail my activities till Friday with the hope of some cooler weather.
    Got a cut wheat field overlooking a golf course so if they fly at the very least should get an idea which way they are going. Early season will be tight as most of my regular fields is corn and soy with only one wheat.
    In any case a bad day outdoors is always better than a good day at work.
    Trailer loaded and ready to roll hopefully with this front expected to roll through and a change of air will get these summer doldrums out and refresh the enthusiasm.

    It's supposed to cool off a bit overnight and into the weekend. Not a lot of geese flying around here but there are some. I'm hoping after everyone has shot at them tomorrow morning, they will be looking for a safe place to roost.

    Yup, have to agree. All my fields are still up and not many birds around ... may have to wait a bit for the birds to show up and some fields to be cut before we get after them. Good luck to anyone heading out tomorrow.

    Around here , most farmers have already plowed under their small grain stubble, wheat ,oats,barley, it will be a while till they start chopping corn for silage which the geese do not land in very often.
    They star coming in when the farmers are cobbing the corn , but that will be weeks down the road till the cobbs are mature and dry enough.
    I find that the early season geese have little to no taste in their flesh as all they have been eating up to now is green grass, they taste much better after eating corn and build up some fat in their flesh.

    I agree but its a season of convenience as upland not open yet (well at least where I hunt) the tenders chicken fried and the breast slice thin on the bias makes for a good stir fry. The nov control hunt is the week I get out for the fattened birds as those mixed with early season thigh and drums make for a good pot roast.

    we had a late melt and thaw that led to planting around may 24 and later. i feel a bit like the corn will come off around the same time but a bit later. beans are looking pretty good and alot of hay is now baled. geese are still hung up on the big water around us. good luck fin!
