I'm serious, there are at least 10 places I can think of that Ive seen about a million geese within the last 2 weeks, from small freshwater lakes to the private property I hunt on.

When I was setting up the corn feeder 2 weeks ago, at least 20-30 geese flew over head within range.


I'd love to try out goose hunting, my wife would kill me if I spent any more money.

All you need is the state & fed stamps & steel shotgun shells. I have everything else.

Good luck to everyone that is going out when the season starts. My wife just told me today that I have to take her to the shore for her birthday. Are they catching any fish off the beach right now?:D
Can you hunt geese from Island beach state park?
Oh well. Gives me more time to get ready anyway! Maybe the 8th and 9th.

you can hunt them from sedge island which is part of IBSP. Some people are catching fluke from the beach, and I know alot were catching kingfish. Sometimes you get a school of stripers or bluefish chasing bait.

Nanook I took a ride today checked a few spots, doesn't look that good right now. There are some boirds but not many. Will hit the res. Thurs. to find the big flocks & see which way they go when they get up. Found a HUGE field that has birds every morning. Only problem is the farmer said " They come in all at once" When it rains it pours LOL

bob, on the way in to work I stop by a few places. I realize two of the places you can not hunt at. The third spot is a field and lake close to colliers mills, saw about 20-30 geese in the field. I was talking with tommy and the only problem with goose season seems to be that a week later the early bow season for deer starts :)
