Free Hunting Talk on the Resident Canada Goose Season
CONCORD, N.H. – Pick up some tactics for hunting resident Canada geese in New Hampshire at a free talk on August 31, 2010, at 7 p.m. at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H. The talk kicks off Fish and Game's fall series of evening hunting talks that will be held every Tuesday evening through September. No pre-registration is required.
"There are very few things that compare to a flock of geese coming into your decoy setup," says Ray Jackson, an avid waterfowl hunter who will present the session on early season goose hunting tactics. Jackson will explain how to set up your decoys, and talk about shot size and choke selection, blinds and the importance of “pre-scouting.” He will also go over basic gear needs, safety and field care. Participants will also hear about some of Jackson's favorite ways to prepare goose.
Jackson has been pursuing waterfowl for over 30 years. He is the Northeast Pro-staff director for Buck Gardner Calls and is on the Pro-staff for Mossy Oak Camouflage, Tanglefree decoys, blinds and accessories and Camo Solutions. During the season, he spends over 60 days in fields and marshes throughout the Northeast hunting ducks and geese. The off season finds him carving decoys, fishing and conducting waterfowl seminars throughout New England.
This talk and the others in the series are intended to help hunters prepare for a great season in the field. Future topics in the series will include deer hunting using scents and calls; upland bird hunting; fall turkey hunting tactics; and scouting and hunting strategies for whitetail deer. All talks in the series are free and will be held on Tuesday nights at N.H. Fish and Game headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H. at 7:00 p.m. Specific dates for the talks are posted at http://www.huntnh.com.
