Default geese

Are you guys in the north zone getting any new birds down with the colder weather and snow in Wisconsin. I am in the central zone in Iroquois county and we have yet to get any migraters. Last week I saw one group following 57 down and we got them to come about a quarter mile over then they headed back to the interstate and kept going south. These local birds are just so educated it seems like they see decoys and head the other direction. We have been careful not to over use the same fields but the darn things won't even feed in the same one 2 times in a row. It is not supposed to be easy but getting some to work would even be great. Heading to Union county next weekend to try some ducks if they are still there. Sounds like they are in for a good snow in S. Illinois this weekend. My buddies are heading to Carlyle again but can't get away this weekend. They have had good luck down there and reports say they still have a lot of birds.Maybe some will stick around Horseshoe and we will get them next week.

Just an update to this. We got some birds down finally. Went from 150-200 up to 600 or so. Went out Sat. afternoon when the snow was falling and got 2 birds. Saw a lot of birds that worked right into the decoys. First time I remeber not being able to find a partner. Everyone was busy or with another group. Had the whole field to myself and was done in about an hour. It was terrible to have to wait for the birds on the ground to feed and get up though. Did go Sun. but somebody was in the field between me and the lakes skyblasting and all the birds went right back to the water and didn't come back till after hours. Found out later who ever it was was not supposed to be there. Wish I'd gotten a plate number or something. Good hunting to all.
