Goose Season End

Hello folks, Well since the last blog, goose season in our zone has ended and not with a bang.  Unusually high temps and no wind gave our resident geese no reason to fly or feed.  Managed to harvest just a handful.  Steady temps in the upper 40's and low 50's did provide some good sauger fishing on the Illinois River though.  Fished 4 or 5 days with some friends and caught our fair share, nothing real big, but fishing in January on open water in Illinois is always nice, especially when it's in just a sweatshirt. RIght now, got some buddies duck hunting out of state, hopefully have a good report from them for the next blog.  Who knows, maybe even an ice fishing report. Stay tuned
