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”.

This is a first class resort located on Vermillion Bay on Eagle Lake. The cabins are very clean and well kept. The boats are new with new motors and are in great shape. The owner will also clean your fish for you after your day on the water. Make no mistake the fishing on Eagle Lake is world class.

The Lodge is owned by Gord and Susanne Bastable who will make you feel welcome and before you know it you feel like family. They are the best of hosts. The atmosphere is low key and laid back leading to a great vacation.

This is my 19th year of enjoying the hospitality of the lodge and i can’t think of going anywhere else on Eagle Lake.
