    Default Awesome opening of early goose!

    Trap was steady, and marked the falls.
    Lots of geese moving this morning.

    That creek they call a river did produce! Very nice. Good boy Trap! Wish I could say the same for Fin on opening waterfowl in MN.

    He broke twice on me, then I didn't shoot anymore. . Much easier to control him if Im watching him instead of action in front of me. Teal, wood duck, mallard, and 1lone goose. Fun morning, glad you had the same Mark!

    Great work! Congratulations on a successful hunt and training a steady dog.
    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

    So Mark, doesn't look like your on the "river". Field hunting? It used to be in MN you had to be 100 ft from water in early goose but that changed a few years ago when the geese were taking over. I would rather field hunt, it's more in my comfort zone. Your lucky you got both options.
    Don't tell anybody but all my geese get turned into dog treats also. They luv em.

    Congrats on the hunt. I like the blood on Trap's nose and the front legs are cross. Very content dog.
