Check out the feel free to hunt/ reserve to hunt places up near skagit. lots of decent sheet water barley fields. Some days can be dynamite and some can be slow but we always seem to leave with a few birds.

Bayview can be good. I am from the south sound, so what we did was just picked a random one to hunt one day, didnt do that great but used the rest of the day to check out the other spots. It looks like they added quite a few in the last couple years. Hardest part is early in the season, a lot of them dont hold water until a good stretch of rain, so try and find the ones that hold water.

I've had some pretty good luck out at crescent lake back in the sloughs when Cherry Valley freezes over. The sloughs moving fast enough in places to stay thawed out in patches.

438 views so far.  You can expect about that many rigs lined up at 4:00am next time you try to hunt the Bayview spots again.

Yep!  Name the spot on a forum and you will have to get their at midnight or you now get to hunt with a 100 other guys.

And it will be searchable for years to come.

Best case scenario, dudes start showing up at 1 am with turbo diesels and the landowner gets tired of the hours not being observed and pulls their property from the program.  There are several properties where this is starting to be an issue.

I totally get where you guys are coming from, but may be a little harsh. A quick search and it already pops up 100 times  :dunno:

And if they get that excited over 2 geese than more power too them.

Point taken, maybe a bit harsh.  Congrats on your early geese.  :tup:
