Goose hunting opportunities abound in Oklahoma
In winter, there's a large amount of geese to be had, especially Canade geese.
Not many hunters in the country think of Oklahoma when planning a waterfowling adventure, but I believe Oklahoma is a sleeper state for waterfowling.

Oklahoma can winter an incredible number of waterfowl, especially Canada geese.
Not only are there numerous public places in the state to hunt waterfowl, many landowners in Oklahoma who won't normally allow hunting on their property will accommodate goose hunters.
Geese can wipe out a winter wheat field in a matter of days, eating into a farmer's profits.
On my most recent hunt, I found myself in wheat field in western Oklahoma on an early winter morning with a hunting party of seven.
We hunted from layout blinds with a decoy spread of more than 200 full body goose decoys and five to six dozen magnum shell decoys.
The plan was to put the magnum shell decoys at the front of the decoy spread, or upwind, and then fill back the spread with the full body decoys.
The wind would be at our backs as we hid in the layout blinds that was scattered among the decoys.
