    I spent the weekend hunting geese near Eagle Lake which is in the rice growing region Southwest of Houston. Birds were plentiful but the snows are harder than ever to decoy. The old "wear a white parka and look like a goose" doesn't work any more. We layed on the ground with a 12 inch inclining back rest and covered up with a mat of grass which matched the cut rice field. We got our share of dark geese but only a couple of young snows. It has been this way for two years now. We can't change the weather so better decoys may be the next step. We are using the best guide service and they are as frustrated as we are. Ron Renouf
