Just as I expected, a second negative point without a word from an anonymous party. Fortunately, most of the contributors to the forum have enough class and courage to respond when the need arises. This particular critic seems to be lacking in both regards. Try again, see if you can put a few words to support your ...'opinion'? I would expect another -1 but would be pleased to be proven wrong whatever the content of the comments with respect to my postings.

Would whoever thinks my comments here rate a 'NO' enlighten me as to their reason. Seriously, other than the tongue in cheek portions of the entry I can not imagine what would be viewed as negative. I would bet a month's wages that Kevin Addy would smile after reading the entry as he would recognize it is written by someone who has also hunted his share of snow geese. Any hunter of snows had better be prepared to fail on occasion whatever efforts are taken to succeed. Were you offended by the use of the word lunatic...Ummmmm?

Those snow geese are tough to hunt and Kevin Addy's methods confirm what many of us know but do not have the time or resources to accomplish. You need a truck full of decoys $$, you need time to scout the hunt, you need help to set up because it is lots of work ,,, my back hurts just thinking about bending over 1000 times to spot and pick up decoys. Will I do it? Damn right I will! Those snow geese have tormented us for years. I have lost count of the number of times I am in suspense with the safety off only have them flair away at the last moment.
This fellow knows more than I ever will about hunting snows but I disagree with one of his comments. Snow geese are NOT smart, they just live in a constant state of terror and like a mob respond to any lunatic in the crowd (flock). They will fly off frantically if a leaf blows off the ground. Canada geese honking there way into a decoy spread are sure to get you heart pumping. The snows take that racket to insane levels. Snow geese come in sounding off like a bunch of ..lunatics..( there I used the word again) You feel like shooting them just to shut them up! ... I can't even write about them without getting worked up:) Yes!!! When I become Mr Leisure I will make the time to knock more snow geese out of the sky.
A guy could get obsessed with this activity just like Kevin Addy.
