    Default too hot for deer...

    I booked today off for the first deer hunt. Waking up, I knew it would be too hot. Even if I were to shoot a deer, I'd have to work quick to get it to the butcher and I wasn't up for the hassle. So I hit one of my river spots instead.

    Parked the van, heard the geese hanging out in the river and saw a flock land with some others.
    I quickly scrambled to throw on my waders, guillie suit and thew some shells in the chamber.

    Crawled on all fours to the shoreline and had them thinking I was a bush blowing in the wind. They clucked along and I managed put a few birds in the bag. a little while longer and there's 2 more.

    Retrieval was fun, happened to slip in the river and went for a bit of a swim. All in all a good day and glad to be enjoying the sun instead of cursing it.

    oh, and first time I've ever shot a limit. kind of cool.20191001_111416.jpg

    Heck if you had to go for a swim you picked a good day for it. Good too see you made it work. Figured it be to warm for the dogs today.

    Good shooting. If you know any bears hunters goose carcasses make great bait.

    thanks all. abins it's a carlson's extended full choke. it's made quite a difference. I used the cheaper winchester 3.5 BBs and they pattern quite well out of the sxp and this choke.
