View Full Version : does anyone have the shakes yet?

I was wondering if anyone has the shakes or is drooling uncontrolably because this years season is right around the corner. I cant seem to put down all my Wildfowl magazines and everytime I sit down in the privy I have to look through the Cabelas or herters catalog trying to figure out what new stuff I could get this year. CANT WAIT TO START KNOCKING THEM OUT OF THE SKY!!

Yup, I sure do. I had dreams all night about being in the field, man did I pound them geese, hehe. The birds are starting to move around real good here right now. They fly over my place morning and just before dark. Today I hammered a flock With a come back call from the shop and got them to turn and take a look. I had a friend of Mallardslayer's (named Phil) come by the house today and look at calls. He bought a Saunders Guide series in Delrin. Man we cranked it up together on the calls and it was sweet. Yup I got it real bad. Wonder what I will dream about tonight.

Hey Flock, you said what Phil was blowing but what were you blowing.
I'm a big believer in you get what ya pay for and I've fought off these high dollar calls for a long time, but thats about to change. I was gonna get a straitmeat, but that saunders is 50 bucks cheaper. Your opinion would be appreciated.

I blew alot of calls with Phil. But after he left the one I had in my pocket when the geese flew over was the Traffic call Bill Saunders makes. I had a pile of calls for Phil to try and when he got to the Guides series Delrin he got his wallet out. He has several other calls and I know he had two Super mags and two half beed also. He left 2 of his half breeds for me to tune after he blew a couple I tuned for myself. Those young geese really liked that high pitch of the Traffic call that was the first geese I have used it one. IT is a new call Bill just came out with. I don't know if Phil will see this and get on the forum but if he does ask him what he thinks he blew them all, hehe.

Ya, I've got the shakes bad too, but what I can't understand is I'd NEVER sat in a blind until last season?? And I'm hooked??? Yes I am!!!!! I've been an upland guy all my life, but boy, to see a flock of ducks or geese come in, it just gets my heart pounding! My poor wife has to listen to me point out every damn bird I see! And yes, they're buzzing my house every night, and morning. I had to laugh about the catalogs, I've read EVERY one at least 10 times each, ordered everything I DARE to...and now have marked each page that has something I still want, stacked them up and did a little cover letter for my wife, (birthday in Oct and then X-mas you know!) I only shot two damn geese last year (first two ever) but I'm hooked and waiting!!

Drove north this weekend and found that the field I hunt opening day is planted with corn and soy beans in strip rows. Perfect!!! Next place I went I found a swampy pond I'd never seen before and my parents said that they see geese in there all fall. Drove a 1/2 mile from there and there were 50-100 in a field across the road! I'm chomping at the bit!!!

Goose hunting-it's not just a job...it's an addiction
