HUNT 3, MONDAY DEC 23.

It was as if there are huge letters across the pasture, HUNTER BELOW, DO NOT LAND.

Not one goose gave the decoys a second look and they just flew by heading to greener pastures. I have not seen any geese landing in the adjacent properties or on this property in the last three day of hunting, especially the local yard hoppers that I am hunting.

I will return after January 5 and give it another try but only if there are geese on the properties. Time will tell.

I did get a few shots, but only the local deer herd. my best, Paul

Paul,Chase seems to be wondering if you have any of those pretzels left over. Getting a little hungry out there with no retrieval treats..........Bob

Paul I know what the problem is! Those damn replacement blades I sent you were bad juju. Anything associated with me is bad luck ha.

Put a little corn out Paul, it’s been a few days since we’ve had a good baiting thread ! ;-)

So what you guys are saying, Place in a bucket, a few large bags of Dot pretzles, 10 pounds of corn and then spray it all down with Nose Jammer and then spread out this concoction in the goose field and hope for the best.

But then what do I tell the US Fish and Wildlife officer when he shows up? "they made me do it!". LOL

Yes, exactly. Do exactly that!

Let us know how it goes ;)

Seems like the goose decoys are working for the muleys, so maybe borrow a couple of my muley decoys as "confidence decoys" for the geese? They're in the garage if you want to try them.

Maybe Chase needs a disguise?

Paul, if you go with the bait plan and you hear Chase bark " Oh Oh " as the DOW drives into your hunt spot and Chase also points toward you, you better have your story real straight and maybe figure out a way to blame Chase for the whole deal...........Bob

No worries Mate! If you're using the trad bow, once the boys see it they'll put their ticket book away and laugh their way back to their truck..... =D
