I just took out my Wingmaster and fondled her a little. Nothing inappropriate.
When you have a Wingmaster, other shotguns that you own are just window-dressing...glad to hear you kept it classy

First real cold snap last night (<20 f) has really got the geese moving today. Seems like an endless procession over my house.
It will take me about an hour to get there...go ahead and set up the decoys and I'll get there as soon as traffic will allow
Even better than the sheer numbers is the fact that they're flying low so I pressume they're going to/from the fields and not passing through up in the jet stream.
Time for you to break out the 870 Express
Better not. Since I killed and ate the neighbors cat, she get's nervous when I walk around the yard with a shotgun. I don't need the cops to come knocking again.

Seriously though, I hope they're still this active when you come up to hunt with your buddy.
I have seen geese over the house every day since Thursday.
I think migratory birds, like people, get to more sissified the further south they are. They leave Canada when it's 0 degrees. They leave South Dakota when it's 10. They leave here when it's 20. By the time they get down to Texas, they freak out when it gets down to 40.
Yep, they come here. When humidity gets to 100, and temp to 110, they go back north.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)
