geese

this is about as good as it gets — a mix of snow, Canada and specklebelly geese.

While duck hunting on a flooded field the other day, we were just about ready to pick up the decoys when we saw a string of snow geese low on the horizon and coming our way. The wind was honking, it was drizzling and those birds were on the deck. What looked like a sure fire deal, with easy shots at possibly the most hunter-wary birds on earth, quickly turned sour. Just about the time those geese were within shotgun range, they veered off with the wind.

There seems to be one cold front behind the other now coming through Southeast Texas. For those of us that prefer staying warm, the cold is only tolerable. For those of us that enjoy the lower temperatures, the cold fronts are welcome. I’ll say here that what is cold in Southeast Texas is not cold in the more northern areas. That is unless you add in the wind and humidity. That situation does close the cold gap.
