Thanks guys, What do you expect on Jan 25, the Lunar New Year 2020.

But here is something strange for today. After the hunt and at home I decided to take a nap. The clock said, 11:11 am when my head hit the pillow. When I woke, the clock said, 12:12 pm. Humm! I looked up the Chinese Calendar but there was no goose year. Go figure. NO I do not believe in ghosts or Big Foot.

Longbeard. IN this Small Game conference, a few weeks back, see Post, Special Edition, for a goose recipe, which turned out to be quite good.

Spike78. Not a cast. Chase split his toe nail, we trimmed it, and then put the boot on for protection until it heals.

SitO. I need you to come and video behind me. :)

Bob, the goose season goes until Feb 26th. Thirteen geese this season may be my personal limit; over 80 geese killed for these 9 seasons. What I might do, might do, is to move the Dark Horse blind up to the house location so I can use my recurve bow because of the larger size and height of the blind. If I do that my effective range will be 20 yards and under, perferring 10 yards.

I do want to change it up some and do some ice fishing so the goose hunt will take the back burner. by best, Paul

OK, just returned from the goose pasture and relocated the Dark Horse blind where the T-2 blind was yesterday, so I can use my recurve bow as this blind is larger and taller. Will not hunt until the middle of next week, got to practice some with the stick, so maybe there might be goose 14 on the ground, that is if I can shoot straight with the stick. I was not going to hunt geese anymore this season, until I was challenged to use the stick. What's a guy to do? my best, Paul

Paul, something you might try with your dog's split nail. Super glue!! My girl had a bad one, the season was still on and I tried it. hunting dry land and the river it held. Just cleaned and trimmed the bad one, applied it to the split, made her sit still for about a minute ans voila! all fixed. it's held for a month.

I forget.... Do you keep Chase in the blind ‘til you’ve retrieved your arrow?

I’m assuming that you use broadheads, but that seems like a bad mix with a pup...

Paul your heroism just grows with me! I remember in my younger days owning a v-drive boat that would do a legit 80mph. One morning we were the first on the lake and I was slalom skiing and ran right into a large flock of those darned things your killing! I had one hit me in the belly and one hit me in the head at 60mph. I ought to send you some treats! Wasn't Dot's one of your favorites?

That was awesome! Always finishing strong, seems every year. Thanks for takin' us along!

80!?! Congrats! Man, just when I think I'm closing the gap I look up and he's still out in the lead.... =D

I know Paul baby's the Wonder Dog (just check out all the treats...) and pulls non-pass thoughs out before the retrieve, but couldn't help myself when I showed Coach and she was asking about it..... I told her it was no problem. Chase has it down..... he learned about arrows quite a while ago.... just check out his eye....

LOL! I had to come clean and fess up with the real story before I could peel her off the ceiling.....
