Goose hunting opportunities abound in Oklahoma
In winter, there's a large amount of geese to be had, especially Canade geese.

Our question if there were any geese in the area was answered not long after sunrise when a lone Canada goose flew into the decoys.
Several minutes later, I spotted a pair flying toward the decoys. The birds were flying low and slow, just the way you like them.
When they got to the spread, they turned and revealed themselves to be sandhill cranes. I had my sandhill crane permit and soon the birds were being retrieved by my yellow Labrador, Bo.
Geese continued to fly for the next several hours as flocks filled the sky. By morning's end, we had bagged two sandhill cranes and 16 geese, not bad for a morning afield in a state not known for its waterfowling.
Goose season remains open statewide through Feb. 10. The hunting season on sandhill cranes, open only west of I-35, closes Jan. 20.
