Recently I spent seven hours in a pit-blind with two good friends.
Accompanying me on the hunt were Gerald Staub of Middletown and Jim Keller of Harrisburg. The blind was dug into the ground and allowed you to either sit or stand underneath a rolling roof, thus giving it its name.
Being at ground level keeps you concealed from the keen eyes of waterfowl, especially Canada Geese. The roof is rolled back when the opportunity arises for a shot.
The geese appeared as seven small dots in the distance. Flying in a line, they had their sights made to a nearby field or water to feed. Their faint “honking” made no mistake they were geese – and exactly what we were hunting.
I began to call back to them loudly at first to see their reaction. My calling continued loudly – and subtle at times, depending on whether they appeared to be interested and how they talked back to me.
