From now until March, those blinds and pits will be a home away from home for dedicated waterfowlers and their dogs. John Gechter with Rainin’ Skies Waterfowl joins Jim and Trav this week to talk goose hunting strategies. John tells Jim and Trav that the importance of scouting cannot be downplayed and that diligent waterfowlers will want to get out and find where the birds are and use that information when building their spread. John says they scout about 4 hours a day and it’s the key to getting under the birds. For those hunters who are a bit rusty, John says that a little bit of time at a local trap range could be very beneficial before heading out to the field. He says that while many have a tendency to rush and flock shoot, hunters really need to focus on one bird and make that first shot count.
