Default Almost goose season!

Less than 4 months until goose season. I've got the neighbor boy practicing his duck and goose calls. He's 12 and hunted once with me last year. He's great fun.
I hired him to work for me this summer and he's a pretty darn good worker.
I've been practicing on my short-reed goose calls but I still can't get them to sound right. Oh well, practice, practice, practice!
Talk to you later.

ohio is an awesome state for goose hunting. well the official countdown for season is still 2 and a half months cannot wait!!! As far as the being greasy, i dont think that they are, i like goose the best if you but a couple breasts in the crock pot cover them slightly with water, add seanon salt, a packet of onion soup mix, a half of an onion, and about 3 stalks of celery in and cook all day, tastes similar to a beef roast, very tasty. As far as loads and choke i like modified choke and premium nontoxic shot. Hevi shot #2, kent fasteel bb's, kent impact #1's, hevi shot bb, and the winchester supreme bb and bbb are good goose loads. Just find a stubble field wheat or oats early season, corn later on, and put out some dekes and call a little and learn from there. it is a lot of fun. Good luck

Carp had some good advice!
You might want to start renting/buying hunting videos. It's never too early to start gettin' ready to hunt. Most of the videos give good advice/tips on hunting geese and ducks.
I wish I had the time to teach every body how to hunt geese. I've been at it for 49 years. Most of the time nowadays I go out alone and just lay in the marsh grass and watch 'em fly over me.
I do have some youngsters lined up to take out this year though. That'll be fun.
The shotguns keep getting better and so does the shot. I love steel shot. It took some getting used to at first, but I finally figured it out. Funny, when steel was first mandatory in Idaho all the fare-weather hunters quit hunting. That was great!! They managed to ruin a few fantastic hunts for me and others before they finally left the field.
This year I'm learning to use the short-reed goose call. I'm going to have the neighbor boy (Luke) join me while watching the instructional tapes so he can learn too. I've never had a good goose caller hunt with me. It'll be fun if the two of us can really get to cranking on the calls.
I have no problem gettin' em in close with my calling but two callers who can coordinate the calls well can make for a quick limit. Then you hunt ducks!
I hunt deer just to get it out of the way so I can get back to goose hunting.
And I've never eaten a greasy goose. It's all in the cookin'. There are lots of good recipes out there.
www.cabelas.com has some good hunting tapes.
I'll try to stay in touch as much as I can to share some experiences, good and bad, to assist some of you young people. I enjoy that.
Good luck.
