Secrets To Hunting Geese
Strategies for Hunting Geese with Richie McKnight
Longtime goose hunter and guide Richie McKnight of Dawson Springs, Kentucky, says you can easily take geese canada goose kensington parka amazon . Open, the Grand American, along with almost 50 other goose calling championship titles to his credit and guides from 100 to 150 days a year canada goose kensington parka amazon . McKnight hunts resident geese in the early season and then refuge geese, flyway geese, snow, blue and Canada geese .
When asked how he learned to call geese, McKnight says, I bought a Knight and Hale Double Clucker goose call 20 years ago, when the call was first introduced, and I practiced blowing the calls according to the instructions . Then I went out and listened to live geese talk . I was fortunate enough to hunt with people who really knew how to blow goose calls, and I learned quite a bit from them . I started going to goose calling contests and listening to some of the best goose callers in the nation . That’s where I finally honed my goose calling skills . A Canada goose isn’t a real fast talker, just like southerners talk slowly . When calling to Canada geese, I’ve found that my most effective calling is clucks and moans . He’s also learned that the slow talking technique calls more resident geese . However, he quickly mentions, When geese are migrating, flying really high, and have one thing on their minds moving south I call really hard, fast and loud to get the birds’ attention . Highflying geese are only picking up and hearing small amounts of your calling . McKnight believes that when hunting migrating geese, the more goose sounds you can produce from your blind, the better your odds for calling in those vacationing geese headed south . That’s why he passes out magnum clucker calls to his hunters and teaches them to call geese between flights . Even if they’re making mistakes on the calls, McKnight figures they’re still sounding like a flock of geese, a fact that will help them pull those tall geese down to the ground .
Decoying and Calling Resident and Refuge Geese:
Calling resident geese doesn’t require a big decoy spread, fancy calling or much expertise in hunting, McKnight reports . Basically, you set up in a position where the geese want to go, put out a small decoy spread, hide so the geese can’t see you and talk slowly and softly on your goose call to take birds . However, when I’m hunting refuge geese, if I see the geese coming, I’ll begin to wave a black flag to get the attention of those geese . I want them to spot my decoy spread . If they start to lock up and head my way, I don’t call very much . The purpose of calling and decoying is to get the geese to come to you, and if I can get the geese coming to the decoys, then there’s no reason for me to call a lot .
McKnight uses CarryLite decoys and particularly likes the fullbody decoys because he believes they look more like geese than any other decoys he can use . If I’m hunting resident geese, I’ll only put out 6 to 18 decoys . But when I’m hunting refuge geese or migrating geese, I use a really big spread often as many as 2,500 decoys to attract them . In the places where McKnight hunts in Illinois, there may be as many as 150,000 geese coming off the refuge . A small decoy spread won’t attract these large numbers of geese . McKnight may have a spread as long as 1/2 mile placing his decoys thickly between the pit blinds to insure that the geese will have a difficult time landing between the pits . In front of his pits, McKnight will put out family groups of four or five decoys, next make a space free of decoys and then place four or five more decoys to give the geese plenty of room to come in and light right in front of his pits . As the geese come closer, McKnight will cluck somewhat faster and more highpitched to get the geese excited . Then as the geese begin to set their wings to approach the pit, he’ll slow down his calling . All I want to do when the geese are coming in is just give them enough calling to keep them coming, McKnight comments . Just before McKnight tells his hunters to take the geese, he growls a lot in the call and gives feeding calls to pull the geese the extra 20 yards needed to get a good shot .
Because large numbers of snow geese and blue geese will destroy their own habitat, the areas where McKnight hunts for the most part have no limits on the number of snow and blue geese a hunter can bag in a day . Some years the refuge that McKnight hunts has more than 700,000 snow and blue geese on it . The real secret to taking snow and blue geese is an area must have wind, McKnight explains . When we put out our spread for these geese, we use both CarryLite decoys and windsocks . To call in the snows and blues, McKnight prefers to use an electronic call that also has recordings of actual flocks of snow geese on the ground to call loudly . As many as 3,000 geese may come in 30 or 40 yards above us, McKnight emphasizes . When these geese approach a decoy spread, they expect to hear a lot of sound from many different geese . Since electronic calls have been made legal for calling snow and blue geese, I don’t believe there’s a better electronic caller or better snow and blue geese recordings than those that Knight Hale have . Another secret to taking snows and blues is that you have to be willing to move a lot . Since 200,000 geese can wipe out a field in 2 days, you consistently must move the decoys, stay ahead of the geese and to be in the fields where the geese are returning to the next day . . . canada goose kensington parka amazon .

Kim Cattrall at home on stage The Post and Courier
The “Sam” in question is, of course, the maneater Samantha Jones from “Sex and the City canada goose retailers in uk . ” The trouble was that Cattrall wasn’t playing Samantha on this night: She was trying to be Amanda in a production of Noel Coward’s “Private Lives canada goose retailers in uk . ”
Momentarily shaken, Cattrall pressed on . “You just go to yourself, ‘Oh, that’s sweet . ‘ And then you go, ‘OK, let’s go . Who’s got the first line?’ You’re in character . It’s just what you do . ”
Since putting down her last cosmopolitan in the second “Sex and the City” movie, Cattrall has politely been trying to shake off Samantha and remind people that she’s also a veteran theater actress .
That mission got easier when “Private Lives” opened last month at the Music Box Theatre in New York . Cattrall stepped into the role played by respected actresses including Gertrude Lawrence, Maggie Smith and Elizabeth Taylor .
It’s the tale of a divorced couple who discover they have adjoining rooms while honeymooning with their new spouses and rekindle their romance . Cattrall stars opposite Paul Gross, star of the TV shows “Due South” and “Slings and Arrows . ”
Cattrall, 55, in person is as thoughtful and sincere as Samantha is not, a beauty with a regal air whose stunning appeal hasn’t faded in the years since she was an ingenue in “Police Academy,” “Mannequin” and “Porky’s . ”
She’s built a career switching from commercial films to theater, but the Samanthas in her career seem to stick more in the popular consciousness than her role in “Three Sisters . ” She’s been in “A View From the Bridge” at the Lee Strasberg Institute, in a Donmar
Warehouse production of David Mamet’s “The Cryptogram” and played a quadriplegic sculptor in a London production of “Whose Life Is It Anyway?”
“If you look at my resume, you’ll see my theater and film they look like two different actors in a lot of ways,” she says . “I knew from a very early age that if I wanted to be viable in the theater world, people know who you are if you have film credits . ”
Richard Eyre, the director of “Private Lives” and who helmed “Mary Poppins” and “Indiscretions” on Broadway and was head of the Royal National Theatre, has long been hoping to work with Cattrall .
“Quite often people think actors who have celebrity because of a TV career have not proved themselves on the stage . But she was a stage actress before she became a television actress,” he says . “It doesn’t go away . ”
The two didn’t initially intend to team up for the Coward play . They actually planned to work on a production of Henrik Ibsen’s “Ghosts,” which created a sensation by raising the taboo topic of venereal disease . But they found out there was another production of “Ghosts” in the works that had booked a theater in London .
While searching for an alternative work, Cattrall was sent “Private Lives” by messenger . “I read like the first 15, 16 pages and I called Richard and I said, ‘We’ve got to do this . Let’s leave syphilis behind,’” she says with a laugh .
“It really made me laugh . I loved the clip of it . I loved the barb of it . I loved the screwball comedy of it . I had been doing such heavy things and I thought this would be really, really great . ”
A successful run in London led to a stint in Toronto and now Broadway, a transnational trip that has significance for Cattrall, who was born in Britain, grew up in Canada and now lives in New York . “This play is hitting every major stop . It’s really quite astounding,” she says .
While Coward plays are often considered to be frothy and mannered, Cattrall sees “Private Lives” to be ahead of its time . There are very dark elements, including allusions to wifebeating, and Cattrall’s character has a feminist streak . “What he’s really writing about is heterosexual relationships and the obsession of love,” she says of Coward .
Cattrall, who made her Broadway debut in “Wild Honey” with Ian McKellen in 1986, has found plenty of work since “Sex and the City” began winding down .
The theater is where she feels happiest, though . For one thing, there are fewer Samantha Jones parts, which she now gets offered a lot . “The theater, for me, especially now, is where the best parts are,” she says .
“I love Samantha but I don’t think the writing could surpass what we were given on a weekly basis . And secondly, I feel like I did it to the best of my ability . To revisit it outside the actual creative team, I don’t think would be that satisfying for me . ”
She likes to cite a lesson she learned from actor Jack Lemmon . When they met, she asked him the secret of his longevity in show business . His reply is something she’s taken to heart: Take things that scare you .
But she doesn’t want to be preachy about it .

How long does your toddler sit for storytime
If it’s on my lap (or my husband’s lap) he’s more likely to stay put than if it’s on the floor canada goose for sale in winnipeg . He’s 18months old but was a preemie, so only 15months adjusted, so he’s still very busy moving about and getting into things canada goose for sale in winnipeg . He’s rather play than eat, sleep, read, etc . !!!!
When it’s time for bed, after he’s had his bath and been put into his jammies, one of us will sit down w/ him on our lap and read a book or two before bed . Most of the time, he is most interested in turning the pages but he still likes to rip at them (if it’s a thin book) so we have to be careful .
I’d say he’s very attentive for about 5 mins . but will stay on my lap w/o fussing for 1015 mins . at this point . Anything more than that, and he’s fussing and squirming to get down and move around .
My daughter just turned 18 months old and really varies with the amount of time she’ll sit for storytime . If I bring her to the library with other children, she really wants to be moving around and will only sit for about 5 minutes unless I am helping to keep her in my lap . Some nights when I read a bedtime story to her and my husband holds her, she’ll sit for up to 20 minutes . Other times, during the day, she will want several books in a row read to her and will sit for about 30 minutes total . Sounds like you have an alert, patient child! . canada goose for sale in winnipeg .
My Dale Carnegie insights
This is from Chapter 6 How to Make People Like You Instantly “There is one allimportant law of human conduct canada goose sale vest . If we obey that law, we shall almost never get into trouble canada goose sale vest . In fact, that law, if obeyed, will bring us countless friends and constant happiness . But the very instant we break the law, we shall get into endless trouble . The law is this: Always make the other person feel important . John Dewey, said that the desire to be important is the deepest urge in human nature; and William James said: “The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated” . Here’s what I think about that . Bible College, where Mark attended . One of our instructors, Dorothy Jean, was the sage of the campus . Dorothy Jean was wise, witty and had a profound ability to understand people and provide exacting, uplifting counsel . I had a huge desire to learn how to counsel people (I believed this would make more people like me instantly) so I asked Dorothy Jean what I needed to study and learn so that one day I could also be a great, sagacious counselor like her . Hoping Dorothy Jean would lay out a precise roadmap of everything I needed to study, I stood ready with my pen and paper . Dorothy Jean’s advice to me was simple, so simple that it passed completely over my head . She said, “Robin, it’s not what you say to people that matters . You need to learn how to listen . ” I already thought I was a good listener, so I didn’t “hear” Dorothy Jean’s meaning . Over 20 years have passed now and I’ve contemplated that advice many, many times throughout my life . What Dorothy Jean was really saying was: It’s not about you it’s about the other person! Dale Carnegie’s excellent guidance to Always make the other person feel important, for me, comes down to listening . When I stop “listening” to myself and start listening to the other person, I can begin to apply the tips Carnegie speaks of . Great suggestions are to ask myself, “What about this person do I admire?”, and to be “Hearty in my approbation and lavish in my praise” . This is sound advice but I can’t do these things unless I listen and pay attention to the other person . Seems simple, but this is taking me a lifetime to perfect . I have many little stories of how I am applying Mr . Carnegie’s advice, but you’ll have to keep returning to the BLOG to find out about them!

How to take care of your older cat
Eye: The eyes may display the most visible agerelated changes canada goose shop edmonton . If you looked into your older cat’s eyes and you notice a lacy, or motheaten, appearance in the iris where the formerly solid, dark swatch of green, blue or gold once appeared canada goose shop edmonton . Cats with nuclear sclerosis may develop a bluish cast in the eyes . Iris atrophy and nuclear sclerosis are common agerelated traits that may not decrease your cat’s vision to any appreciable extent, though several diseases especially those relate to high blood pressure can seriously impair a cat’s ability to see . Ears: Hearing loss commonly occurs in elderly cats for a variety of reason, including chronic inflammation due to infection . As a result of hearing loss, your cat may vocalize more loudly and may not respond when you call him . Sudden moves, noises or touches may startle him . Teeth: Paying attention to your older cat’s dental health in his younger years will pay huge dividends down the road . Dental disease, which can hamper or prevent eating and cause pain, is extremely common in senior cats . In older cats, some teeth may be missing or look worn and yellow . Nose: In healthy senior cats, it’s possible a reduced sense of smell may partially cause loss of appetite, though a refusal to eat is more likely associated with dental problems or other diseases . Skin and Fur: A decline in the metabolic rate can cause your cat’s skin to become dry and less elastic . An aging cat’s skin thins and blood flow decreases, leaving the skin more prone to infection . The skin may appear flaky, and the fur may become thinner and a little dull or rough . As often occurs in ageing dogs, your cat’s muzzle may turn gray . Older cats groom less efficiently than younger cats, which sometimes results in hair matting, skin odor, and dermatitis . Muscles, Bones, and Joints: Older cats lose muscle tone and can appear unsteady or wobbly on their feet . The loss of muscle mass may result in a thinner appearance or the opposite may happen, as your cat’s metabolism slows and your pet puts on weight . Older cats often display stiffness in their joints as tissues lose moisture and cartilage gradually deteriorates . Degenerative joint disease, or arthritis, is common . Bones become brittle . Senior cats may have trouble getting up, lying down, or stepping into their litter box . To your aging cat, climbing stairs may now seem like climbing Mount Everest and his favorite perch on your couch even harder to reach . Aging cats may not enjoy being picked up or cuddled if they experience pain . Finally, grooming may become more challenging as stiffness impedes a cat’s ability to bend or stretch . Nails: The nails, or claws, of an aging cat can become thicker, brittle, and overgrown . A senior cat is less able to retract her claws . Be sure to clip her nails (or have them trimmed) to prevent the nails from sticking to textured materials such as carpet or growing into her paws . Your Older Cat . canada goose shop edmonton .
Polar Bear Pictures
Polar bears roam the Arctic ice sheets and swim in that region’s coastal waters canada goose kensington uk . They are very strong swimmers, and their large front paws, which they use to paddle, are slightly webbed canada goose kensington uk . Some polar bears have been seen swimming hundreds of miles from landthough they probably cover most of that distance by floating on sheets of ice .
Polar bears live in one of the planet’s coldest environments and depend on a thick coat of insulated fur, which covers a warming layer of fat . Fur even grows on the bottom of their paws, which protects against cold surfaces and provides a good grip on ice . The bear’s stark white coat provides camouflage in surrounding snow and ice . But under their fur, polar bears have black skinthe better to soak in the sun’s warming rays .
These powerful predators typically prey on seals . In search of this quarry they frequent areas of shifting, cracking ice where seals may surface to breathe air . They also stalk ice edges and breathing holes . If the opportunity presents itself, polar bears will also consume carcasses, such as those of dead whales . These Arctic giants are the masters of their environment and have no natural enemies .
Females den by digging into deep snow drifts, which provide protection and insulation from the Arctic elements . They give birth in winter, usually to twins . Young cubs live with their mothers for some 28 months to learn the survival skills of the far north . Females aggressively protect their young, but receive no help from their solitary male mates . In fact, male polar bears may even kill young of their species .
Polar bears are attractive and appealing, but they are powerful predators that do not typically fear humans, which can make them dangerous . Near human settlements, they often acquire a taste for garbage, bringing bears and humans into perilous proximity . . canada goose kensington uk .
MVP Edgar Renteria saves biggest moments for World Series
”It’s unbelievable canada goose trillium kijiji . That’s life,” Renteria said with joy and exhaustion in his voice after his threerun homer in the seventh inning Monday night sent the Giants to their first World Series title since 1954 canada goose trillium kijiji .
Wearing a gray, orange and white World Series champion Tshirt and a stiff new cap backwards on his head World Series trophy facing forward Renteria beamed after he was picked as a unanimous World Series MVP .
After getting the hit that won the 1997 title for Florida and making the final out for St . Louis in Boston’s 2004 win, he stunned the Texas Rangers and their fans with his drive off Cliff Lee, unexpected pop from the No . 8 spot in the batting order that propelled San Francisco to a 31 victory and its first title since leaving the Polo Grounds after the 1957 season 18 years before he was born .
A fivetime AllStar who has declined dramatically the past three seasons, Renteria hit . 412 (7 for 17) with six RBIs in the Series . He had all of three homers and 22 RBIs during an injuryfilled regular season that landed the shortstop on the disabled list three times and prompted him to openly ponder retirement .
In three World Series appearances, he has compiled statistics anyone would be proud of: a . 333 average (21 for 63) with five doubles, two homers and 10 RBIs .
”Maybe I am more in focus . I know it’s a different game because if you make a mistake you’re going to pay,” he said . ”That’s why my focus is different, my level is different, and just want to be the guy to do something . ”
An hour after the game, orangeandblackclad Giants fans stood behind the thirdbase dugout at Rangers Ballpark chanting ”Don’t Retire!” as Renteria conducted interviews .
”It was a tough year for me,” he said . ”I told myself to keep working hard and keep in shape because something is going to be good this year . ”
Now 34, Renteria made three trips to the disabled list this season because of a strained right groin (May 622 and May 25June 16) and a strained left biceps (Aug . 11Sept . 1) . His 72 games were the fewest of his big league career .
”The word I got, he was slow at shortstop,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said . ”He looked like the young Renteria that I seen when he first came over . ”
Renteria is used to the big stage he is one of only two players to get a World Seriesending hit and hit into a World Seriesending out, according to STATS LLC . The other was Goose Goslin, who struck out for Washington against Pittsburgh in 1925, then singled for Detroit against the Chicago Cubs in 1935 .
In 1997, Renteria’s 11thinning single up the middle off Cleveland’s Charles Nagy won the title for the Florida Marlins, only the fourth Game 7 in World Series history to stretch into extra innings .
Seven years later, his comebacker to Keith Foulke finished Boston’s fourgame sweep of St . Louis and gave the Red Sox their first title since 1918 . He was the one who hit the ball that Doug Mientkiewicz made famous .
The twotime Gold Glove winner returned to the World Series this year with his sixth major league team in 15 seasons .
He didn’t start in the division series against Atlanta but was inserted into the lineup in Game 2 of the NL championship series at Philadelphia . Renteria started 10 of the Giants’ final 11 games, with Juan Uribe shifting from shortstop to third .
”Well, Edgar has been through it, and I wanted a leader out there,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said . ”I know how bad Edgar wanted it . Wilson in the fifth inning of Game 2, then singled in two runs in the eighth . He added three hits in Game 4, helping the Giants to a 40 win and a 31 Series lead .
Then in Game 5, with Lee dominating the Giants, Cody Ross and Uribe started the seventh with consecutive singles up the middle, and Aubrey Huff sacrificed for the first time in his 11season big league career .
Renteria told teammate Andres Torres, who was on double deck, that he would hit one out .
”I was joking,” Renteria said later . ”But it went out . ”
With firstbase open, Lee got behind 20 . The next pitch was a cutter that stayed up and over the plate . As the ball rose toward leftcenter, David Murphy kept running back, and at first it was unclear whether it would be caught . Murphy ran out of room, and the ball sailed just over the 8foot wall and into the front row of seats .
Renteria celebrated with his teammates as they passed the trophy to each other on the infield long after the game was over . Tim Lincecum, a firsttime champion at age 26, praised the old guy .
”It is pretty crazy, just because he’s been around so long,” Lincecum said . ”You can see he’s still got it . He comes up clutch in a clutch situation . ”
It wouldn’t have been surprising if Renteria didn’t get a start during the postseason . Now, 13 years after he was the toast of Miami Beach, he’s the king of Nob Hill .
”Sat on the bench for four months of the year . Hits two clutch home runs,” said Buster Posey, the Giants’ 23yearold rookie catcher, ”and is going out a World Series champion . ” . canada goose trillium kijiji .
MDC Files Zimbabwe Vote Court Challenge
Tsvangirai and his Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) charge in a court appeal that the July 31 vote was a “farce” that was riddled with fraud and should be declared invalid canada goose for sale ottawa .
“The prayer that we seek is that this election be declared null and void and also that a fresh election be held within 60 days,” MDC spokesman Douglas Mwonzora told journalists outside the constitutional court where the party’s petition was lodged canada goose for sale ottawa .
However, regional powers were less critical, with the Southern African Development Community (SADC) calling it “free and peaceful” while stopping short of describing it as fair .
The African Union declared it fair, while at the same time raising concerns about voters being turned away and about the electoral roll .
But independent monitors from the Zimbabwe Election Support Network (ZESN) said more than 750,000 urban voters were missing from the electoral list, while rights groups said some people were forced by Mugabe supporters to feign illiteracy and vote in the presence of police and election officials .
The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission said on Thursday that nearly 305,000 Zimbabwean voters were turned away because their names were missing from the voters’ roll, they were registered elsewhere or they did not have adequate identification .
Data show that the largest number of voters 64,483, were turned away in the capital Harare .
Urban areas have long been a stronghold of Tsvangirai’s MDC party .
“We are going to submit good evidence in our view . Some of the evidence is going to be oral evidence,” said Mwonzora .
“The person on trial is not the Movement for Democratic Change . The person on trial is Mr Mugabe and his government . It’s also the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission and, I dare say, the judicial system of Zimbabwe . ”
The spokesman said his party has evidence of names which appeared more than once on the voters’ roll .
The MDC is seeking an audit of the voters’ roll, ballots and voter registration .
It has also appealed to the high court to compel the electoral commission to produce copies of the voters’ roll and provide the presidential election results for each constituency .
In the court documents the MDC also alleges that an Israeli company was paid $US10 . 5 million ($A11 . 60 million) to manipulate the voters’ roll .
“What is more worrying is the involvement of an Israeli firm, Nikuv Projects International, in the development, management and manipulation of the voters’ roll,” the court petition reads .
This is the third time that Tsvangirai, a 61yearold former union leader, has tried and failed to unseat Mugabe . . canada goose for sale ottawa .
