    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I started around 7 PM thinking that the geese wouldn't head back to the roost until around 8 PM&nbsp;to 830 PM.&nbsp; WRONG.&nbsp; I checked a 70 acre sweet corn field that I got permission in last week and it was loaded with about 80-100 geese and others had already left for the roost.&nbsp; The corn turned brown about a week ago and the farmer had half of it disced under tonight.&nbsp; He said he will wait to cut and disc the other 40 acres until Monday (per special request!)</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I checked out a local golf course that I've got and it had about 50-70 birds.&nbsp; Got the go ahead on that for the opening week.&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">The geese started heading to the roost around 7:30 and were all back by 830 PM.&nbsp; Mostly family groups with 8-15 birds.&nbsp; They are really grouping together at the same roosts now.&nbsp; A couple weeks ago, they were spread out pretty good.&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I checked an 8 acre sweet corn field for my last stop and the farmer informed that he will be discing the field this week.&nbsp; (Already bush hogged)&nbsp; He said that there is around 60 geese using the field every morning, but not in the evening.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Looks like it will be a great opener down here.&nbsp; Can't wait.&nbsp; With Labor day weekend and Thursday/Friday off, that's 5 straight hunts for me!</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Does anyone know what time the birds are leaving the roost in the AM?</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Any help will be much appreciated.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Thanks</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Bryan</P>

    <P>They are leaving about 7-730. I have been seeing less and less geese in my wheat fields. Still enough for a fun morning but I'm looking for a bunch for a good filmed hunt. Found a new field with birds in it tonight gonna try for permission probly tomorow. Need some luck as I was denied there last year.</P>
