Man, that had to hurt watching the geese that close. I can honestly say I've never killed a goose. I've been over on Salt plains refuge on a private land hunt and had geese fly over, but its always been a nice cloudless day and they were about a mile high. :'( Be real carefull on that water cutting a hole in the ice. We tried that one time, and just about didn't make it back as the ice broke under us , and we just barely made it to shore, and then just about croaked from the hypothermia untill the truck would warm up and get the heater going.
