Well this morning was pretty awesome. There's really no other way to describe it. My father in law drew out for a goose hunt on the Washita Wildlife Refuge so he and I headed out early this morning. We drew out a few hunts for this area last year as well so we knew pretty much what to expect. Even so, it takes your breath away at times. We enjoyed some laughs, both together and at each others expense. Good times. And while the morning was unfolding we got to enjoy a beautiful sunrise as well. (Some of these pics didn't turn out as good as I'd hope, but I'm posting them up so you'll get the idea of just how many geese were coming off the water)
This first sunrise image is the view from behind our pit. Water behind us, fields out in front.
this seriously looked like a swarm of geese rising up
this next pic is my favorite of the day, hard choice to say the least
view out the front of the pit
flocks were coming to and from the lake all morning. It was just a matter of luck if they went over us
those specs in the water are more geese
just peaking out
one canada down, WooHoo!
duck slayers of the day, left a Stoeger P-350 and right a Remington 870 SPS, we heard the geese refer to them as the black mamba's of death
our first class comforts of the day ( And yes that's one shell left in a box with only one goose to show for it what can I say, my father in law is a terrible shot ;)
geese were moving off and on all morning
right before quitin time we downed a Ross Geese. So two geese is all we left with, I'll just say we shot more than two times and leave it at that...
all and all a very enjoyable morning. Good times shared and I look forward to doing it again next year...
You gotta love the outdoors
Thanks for looking
