Moderation is the key
By L.P. Brezny
In 2000, the early goose season was off to a good start. My
partners and I were hunting near the city of White Bear Lake and
geese were as thick as wood ticks in early spring.
We had a piece of untouchable real estate that retained a great
holding pond in one corner of the 100-acre estate, and a high ridge
covered with alfalfa. You could say we had it all in terms of a
goose harvesting stage. Only a good-sized sweet corn field might
have topped it.
On this morning we were guests, of sorts. We were evaluating new
guns and loads, and we were hunting a very hot hill that was on
loan to us just for the weekend. It had been hunted the two
previous weeks of the early goose season.
