The 2021 Christmas weekend was a good one.  The weather was near perfect, my whole family was home and the hunting was outstanding.  Now do not get me wrong.  I did not spend the entire holiday weekend in the field.  However, on Saturday morning I did manage to sneak down for a goose hunt with my good friend and waterfowl-hunting expert, Kevin Brunstein of Jacksonville.

Our purpose for this hunt was two-fold.  First, Kevin had just recently gotten permission to goose hunt a cornfield very near his home.  When I say “very near”, I mean it.  We actually drove our ATV’s, pulling trailers filled with full-bodied decoys, right from his house.  We hunted within sight of his yard.
