I haven’t been hearing much shooting so far during this goose season; either the geese are too far away for me to hear the shots of people hunting them, or they are not getting much pressure.
I haven’t heard a lot of geese flying over my house this year either. I talked with the farmer who owns the small pond and pasture where Jack and I hunt geese, and he told me that so far this fall there hadn’t been any geese dropping in. The season is about half over and I haven’t even been out yet. I must be slowing down.
On the other hand, the salmon are starting to run and I haven’t been out for them either. Over the years, after catching plenty of fall salmon, I have become more of a watcher than a partaker when the run gets going.
I do like observing the fishermen in Oswego, or even the fishermen in Pulaski if I happen to be going through the area. They have a lot more fun catching the fish than I would.
All the same, I plan to stop down and see what the action is like in the raceway below the powerhouse in Oswego this weekend.
