The distant call of Canada Geese honking as day breaks gets your heart pounding as suddenly the sky appears black with geese. They give your decoy spread a fly-by and begin to circle back. At that moment, you realize early Canada goose season will be something you will never forget. This season allows the first opportunity for waterfowlers to polish up on their wing shooting, calling, and to try out new gear for the upcoming seasons. Don’t forget your favorite hunting buddy because it is an experience you will want to share.
Here they come, they"re cupping their wings, their landing gear is down – take ’em! The thrill and excitement may come early to those who wish to take on the challenge of early September goose season in Alabama. This season should make for a good tune-up for both you and your retriever.
