only my second year of waterfowl hunting, how should I hunt the early 2 week season on canadian Geese.

Drive local lakes and try to find shoreline to setup a temp blind? any special regulations?

Field hunt. Water is a bad way to hunt early season, because its their roost. They are not migrating birds, theyre resident, so the water you find them on is the area they call home. You go in there shooting, and thats all she wrote...they aint coming back to that spot. Find an area and pass shoot or get in a field they are feeding in.

As I spend more seasons waterfowling, I find that field hunting almost always trumps the water, conditions permitting.

Find an area they are flying through on a consistent basis, like a marshy area between the feed site and the roosting area. Setup shop and plug them if theyre close enough. Decoys arent necessary, they wont decoy as the spot youll be in isnt an area they want to spend time in. Look for points on lakes that are near areas they might spend a sunny day. The idea is to catch them in transit.

Not my style, but it works now and then.
