|The Admiral retrieving a goose - Good Boy!!|
The goose season reopened in our zone yesterday and even with gun season for deer in full swing we knew we just had to hit the farm for some shooting, especially seeing we only got two hunts in prior to the close of the first split.
The usual characters made the early morning trip to the farm on an overcast, windy but usually warm morning. Everyone has a job to do when we get there and the trucks are barely to a stop as we jump out and get to business of unloading the decoys and building a blind. We had 3 dozen full bodies and 2 dozen shells for this mornings hunt which is about 4 dozen too many as far as Busch Pilot is concerned. His philosophy is the more we put out the more we have to pick up and he reminds us as we are loading up the trucks the day before and about 5 times during setup but we just ignore him.

|Damon's showing off his bling!|
These geese wanted in and we were obviously on the X and could have left our calls at home, but we used them just to give the geese a fighting chance. Damon got his first band which was a special treat, especially seeing he just started goose hunting this year. The bird was banded in CT back in 2008 and obviously sticks around the area.
As usual, time in the blind, however short, was filled with lots of laughs and good times with friends as we share the passion.
