I finally made it back to AR to chase the snows....I have muscles aching that I didnt even know I had! There was a flock of 5-6000 that were staging between two fields and we put the slip on them several times. It becomes a military type assualt slipping through patches of cover, through muddy ditches, crawling along brushy banks all for the goal of getting within range of the geese. The 10ga BPS topped with a Patternmaster with BBB, BB, and T's did a fine job.Two weeks ago there were many thousands of birds in the area and the folks we hunted with had pics where they had killed 298 birds. We managed 40-50 just hunting in the morning.
