    those geese are still about the,re feeding quite close to town .
    feels great to hear geese calling again and to call at them.
    quite impressed with the ease of use of the power clucker.

    thats exactly what my missus calls them to
    there are heaps of pairs with little,uns
    so tiny its no wonder they lose them probaly almost daily.
    the long wet grass is aparticular killer where we go not to mention cats hawks.
    the only thing i havent seen are the weasel clan but they must be there somewhere.
    see how many there are when they creche up

    right the 20 gauge steels finaly here.
    managed to get 4 boxes each of the federal 20 gauge upland steel load with fs [flightstopper] pellets.
    ita a 7/8s ounce load in 3,s and 4,s doing 1500 feet per second.
    hopefuly theres some parries and geese to try it and the 2,s ive got on.
    cos the 3 inch 28 gram 2,s were shite on parries.
    for the life of me i dont get why the seasons so early [13th of jan] given f&g wont even do there moult counts untill the end of january.

    its in responce to crop damage in the early harvest areas of nth canterbury and supposedly so younger gunners can get out with dad/mum over the holidays.
