Like the topic says, I'm trying to pattern geese. I've never before spent much time goose hunting, definitely not much time trying to figure them out.
I have a small marsh on my property. The geese seem to congregate in the small shallow part and the ducks in the deeper part with thick vegetation.
I think I have noticed that the geese show up very late in the season and mostly on warmer days. Is that something that makes sense? I'm guessing that the fact I don't know this already might be showing off my lack of experience goose hunting.
Thanks.

In NW Iowa I've notice that they prefer bigger water on blustery days, don't keep drifting too close to shore I figure.

Might be a geographic thing. I live in a tidal estuary in Southern Massachusetts. The Canada Geese are so loud, all year long, that they've been known keep us awake at night.

I've noticed the same thing early season.

If you pay attention to those geese on your pond in the heat of the day early season you might see them dipping and tipping back their heads. If so then they are leaving their lawn and coming to your pond to drink water. They might do the same all season so long as it is dry and there are no puddles in the cut fields.
