    Burned up almost 8 boxes in one hunt down there. It pays to shoot a good gas auto!

    Just starting to see some groups show up in my area. Had two fields last week that were holding a couple hundred birds each, but have seen a few big flocks (1000+) show up in the last couple days.

    Weather has been really up and down. It was 50 last Thursday, then in the 20's all weekend. 10 degrees this morning, supposed to hit 60 by Wednesday, then highs in the 20's on Friday. Should keep the birds from moving too far North.

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully some of the ice melts on the warm snap.

    What do you guys suggest picking up before heading out of state for a snow goose trip?

    Good sunglasses, lots of shells, white clothes, and low expectations. Remember the average kill per day is less than 20 birds. So for all the 200 bird days some guys only get 9 or 10. I have went a 2 day and we killed only 2 birds both days total.

    Actually something that I didn't have that would of been nice assuming your not in a layout blind...was the Y sticks that support your gun....we hunted some wet rice fields and I didn't have those...it's tough to keep your gun clean. One guy brought gun oil in the field and thank god because several of us needed it.

    That's smart I'll pick one up. Got case of shells tyvek suit sun glasses 2 guns. Gonna pick up some spray cleaner to throw in the bag. Didn't mean to hijack thread but figured if there was any new guys heading out of state be good place to see what should be brought along.

    We just got back from stugart Arkansas. Killed 53 first morning and only 5 the second morning. Get an extension tube, gopro, wind proof cloths. Bring waders in case it's muddy. Flashlight, earplugs, waterproof gloves.facemask extra pair of boots, ECT. Good attitude if things don't go as planned
