Gord & Keith's Somewhat Excellent Goose Adventure…

Keith Mitchell (from the island) and I decided it would be interesting to try goose hunting. Although we technically have the wrong type of decoys, they are set up in a location where we are told “hundreds” of geese have been landing each day. Boy, we can hardly wait!

First off Keith decides to field strip his gun and remove some extraneous parts he has discovered. Now we are ready to shoot! Is that a goose I hear?
Oh oh……..what’s with this long faced critter?

The decoys seem to be having the wrong affect. It is time to pull up stakes and move onto “plan B”…….location number 2.

This is much better. Keith craftily disguises himself as a bail of hay. Keith, are you there….where are you?

Perfect. Hardly a horse in sight! Will the geese show up?
Success! We each bag a bird and Bell is happy to retrieve them. Her expression seems to be saying “It’s about time!”.

As the sun sets on Keith and Bell, I reflect on an interesting day, and wonder why my back will no longer straighten up………….stay tuned for “Keith & Gord’s sharptail grouse adventure”.

If you’re looking for an outstanding vacation spot for the serious fisherman or a family get away you should consider Vermillion Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake, Ontario Canada. We have stayed at many lake resorts over the years, but none offer the simple pleasures of this one. The lake is large enough and holds enough fish for the most adventuresome fisherman and yet easy for local family fishing for young children. Bring your own boat or use one of the aluminum boats (20 hp) at the lodge. Boat dockage is well protected from the wind and allows easy access to the water.

What sets this lodge apart from most others is it is always clean, well kept with lots to do including paddle boats canoes, bon fires in the evenings and a just plain friendly atmosphere.
