I'm starting to loose my mind! Where are all the Canada Geese at? I'm hoping they didn't short stop on the migration! I haven't even seen a flight yet! Let me know what y'all are seeing in SoCal!

Your Canadas stopped here in Palm Springs for a round of golf and a bit of rye. I've got maybe 3 dozen grazing on the new grass just down the street from my place,

I usually hear them honking when they fly over my house, i have not seen or heard them yet. I will give you a heads up when i hear a ruckus in the sky.

There's been a few flocks of less than 100 in/around Arcata. Mostly Aleutians around right now though.

Well I think I narrowed it down on one of the fields I hunt! It looks like there's been a bit of poaching going on!

So the more I looked around, the more feather clouds I found!

I found five different feather piles of only chest feather from Canada Geese, but I still couldn't be sure it was poachers until I found this!

And it had friends too! They were 3" 15 pellet 00 Buckshot! I also photographed full detailed footprints and started talking to the two neighbors that live a few hundred yards away. To my surprise they told me it was a silver SUV and even had the license plate! This should get interesting tomorrow!

Book em Dano!! Just make sure it's the right people. Game cams come in handy for this.

A wise old sole at the old Mystic duck club always said to expect honkers in numbers in So. Cal. after Thanksgiving. It's usually pretty close.
