"Shillapoo Wildlife Refuge"

You don't see too many signs like this anymore. This is Shillapoo Wildlife Refuge, a great place to take a stroll or get your Christmas goose. Every year millions of geese pass through here in the fall and spring. The smart ones hang out a little South of here, where there is grazing land for the cattle. Hunter's don't shoot near the cows, so the geese are pretty safe there.

It should be noted that Lewis and Clark camped only a few miles North of here back in 1805 on their way to the Pacific.
