This hunt took place in the open country of Midwest Texas. You might think of Texas as a whitetail and Rio Grande turkey state, but waterfowl winter here by the thousands. Goose hunting is a rich tradition.
Maybe you’ll find some birds in a nice, dry field with a brushy ditch nearby. But not likely. Good waterfowl hunting spots are usually, in short, a pain in the ass to hunt. This soupy, muddy field is exhibit A.
