Snow Goose Season 2011 – Mound City, Missouri

The season continues to roll on with over 1.5 million snow geese either on Squaw Creek NWR or in the area there are pleanty of geese. However the snow geese here are the oldest and smartest and if you make one mistake decoying them they are gone. We had an experienced group from Nebraska yesterday and they didnt make any mistakes. Oh I forgot to mention someone was sleeping when we took the shot on one bunch.
