Saw a few, smaller groups of teal on the water earlier today 30 birds or so. Canadas are also moving in. Saw several groups of 50 or more, some in fields others on islands. Two birds in one group had neck bands. Gettin the itch.

Them birds with the whistling feets! Dang they be hard to hit. Lets see, Dove and Teal come early in the season before anybody has much practice, and they're both a challenge to hit (for me at least). Does God have a sense of humor or what? :biggrin:

Early canada goose season opens sept 1st. 5 bird limit. They are a little slower, a lot smarter, but bigger targets nonetheless.

We have a bunch of year-round resident goosers on the upper White river where I live. If ya want some, you can just walk up and club you a couple, but what's the fun in killing tame geese? :biggrin:

I think I could actually hit geese. Teal, well, I just take lots and lots of shells!

Over here on the "sunrise" side of the state we don't get an early season shot at the Canadas. I have to watch 'em coast over my house about 4x a week, at about 50-70 ft off the deck, headed for my neighbors ponds and calf feeders!!!

The temptation is great to "open" the season a few months early, but I guess I'll keep waiting 'til January!!!

I think that is how some get banded (wack em and band em). We have some residents here too they hang out at the parks and boat ramps like crack heads, except I think they are addicted to Fritos.

Wood that be considerd baiting
Well, around here it's just a fact of life. People love to see them flying around and honking and all, but they get tired of the goose crap everywhere. There are folks that like to feed the widdle duckies and goosies, but they're creating liberal hand-out-seeking monsters if you ask me!

I don't hear folks shooting at them off-season, but whos to say some of the tamer ones comming to get their daily hand-out won't get wacked early in the season? I would consider that baiting. But I digress...

I sorta drifted a little there. Y'all go on and talk more about Teal, I probably won't get to go this year, but I love hearing the stories!
