I shot a Goose yesterday about 1/2 before dark, It hit about 30 yards out in the water. I tried till dark to retreive this bird with a fishing rod and treble hooks which usually works. because the lake is very deep and you can't wade out in it. It was an unusual looking goose with blue on it and a solid black neck and head but was with a flock of Canadas. So I went back this morning just to pull it out of the water and get a good look at it. I figured the current had moved it to where I could either get to it or I put on a different set of hooks on my rod hoping in daylight I could get it done but It was gone. I know it did'nt leave on it's own I tried for 30 min. To get it in last night. Will they sink in 12 hours? I really need a good dog. I station myself before the lake and get them coming in and this is the first one I've lost this year.
