These two hardy goose hunters, Randy and Darryl, along with their brother Brett, and friends Jack Murari and Randy Redmond have had quite a goose season. Darryl is the expert, and has various pieces of farm land to hunt. He knows how to lay out decoys and is an expert goose caller. All the guys have individual one person ground blinds that help conceal them till the last minute.
One of Darryl’s hot spots is just a 1/4 mile inland from Lake Erie, and the other is about 2 miles further inland. I think they all have enough goose breast in their freezers to last the winter. Recently I’ve been called to participate, but usually have something else going on (like watching grandkids!) The last few times the guys have went out there’s been frost on the pumpkin, and a very brisk chill in the air. To cold for this fair weather goose hunter. These guys are dedicated to the sport and don’t let a little sub-freezing temperatures get in their way. It’s not always a goose in every pouch, as the last two times they’ve ventured out they have come home empty handed. Oh well it’s in the camaraderie of the hunt and not necessarily the taking of the game.
