Second New Pond for Upcoming Season
Earlier we reported the building of the second pond on Hanson Farm – Now, we are very pleased with the second pond on the Home Farm. This pond is at the “bottom” as you look towards Still Pond Creek from the Lodge. Appropriately named the Goose Hole Pond, this piece of water will be a solid magnet for the migratory Canada Geese. I must say that the Goose Hole Pond will yield exceptional harvests during our upcoming season and many hunting seasons in the future. Many thanks to Tommy and the Pondmeister for their excellent work to make this happen!

GOOD REPORTS ON PRODUCTION
One hundred and sixty-four thousand breeding pairs showed up on the Ungava Peninsula between Hudson Bay and Ungava Bay for this Springs nesting season. Snow cover during the first few days of June on this important breeding area was just a touch more than last breeding season – snow cover is an important parameter as to nesting success. We anticipate, due to the increase in breeding pairs, a higher wintering population in Kent County.
NEW BLINDS BEING BUILT AND INSTALLED
We are in the process of building and installing two new half-pit blinds. One for the new Hanson Farm Pond and one (with electric hookups) on the new Home Farm Pond – yes, between decoying flocks you can recharge your phone!! Half pits give excellent concealment and at the same time give you perfect “shootability.”

WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT YOUR HUNT
Over the last two years, Wild Wings Maryland has pioneered excellence in migratory Canada Goose hunting. 1) Home Farm – two ponds with deep water wells and electricity. 2) Barrett Farm – total reworking of the pond including a new deep water well. 3) Hanson Farm – two ponds, five-acre pasture all adjacent to a major Canada Goose roost area. 4) Little Farm – new pond with electric to the blind and new deep water well.
SHOWTIME FOR YOU AND THE FAMILY
While during the hunting season, non-hunters are welcome at no additional cost to enjoy Chestertown, (very nice Washington College town with nice restaurants, shops etc.). And, during the month of November if you and your family and friends want to enjoy a spectacular viewing of thousands of migratory Canada Geese, our Lodge is available through Airbnb. We know you and your family would enjoy Chestertown, the sights, the Dairy Barn with all the displays and games.
