all you need is a broom for the snow it will sweep right off if you are on top of it and don't let it pile 12 inches hight then you might have to get a push broom :laughing:

This is one of the neatest ideas I have seen yet!!!!!!!
One ? If you are hunting on ice how do you anchor it down? I would think the wind would wreak havoc with it!

mildot we have done it on ice, we just put dekes around the edge, mainly Bigfoot fullbodies and some snow on the edges and it held fine and it was quite windy that day, I guess you could go as far to stake it down if you wanted to, rest assured though it works

i told a friend of mine about this, but he thinks it is illegal. I have found no information saying it is or isnt, can you help me out by giving me some evidence to show him?

Contact your State G&F enforcement division as each state can have laws allowing less hunting options. For example PA does not allow Sunday hunting. MN does not allow hunting in open water from layout boats. Thus why one should always check local laws.

I've also used a weed sprayer mixed with water and a dark food coloring like dark green. just mix it up and sray it on the snow or ice the size you want. And have used the dark tarp trick also in the early season geese. My grandpa gave me some book about duck hunting way back when, and it had all the stuff the old timers used to do to trick the ducks and geese back then when they didn't have all this fancy stuff to blow there money on. The indians used to use mud piles along the banks for decoys. Others used tires cut in half then set up so the cut side was down with wooden heads attached to the front. Can you picture carrying thatdecoy spread
