I have some friends that have fields with corn and/or ponds on them. A couple of them are within a mile or two of a protected wetlands area. Now i've seen case where people will have land but you won't see a bird on it all season. It seems that there are particular fields that these birds want to use. If that is the case, is there a way to get ducks or geese to come give your spread a look?
I will put my time in scouting the areas and hopefully, there are birds that use the areas, but if there isn't what can I do (if anything) to get birds to decoy or come into range?
If the geese are flying close or over the pond and the field, use both....and lots of decoys...both in the water and the field. Sometimes you need to call the snot out of them...sometimes not so much.... Flagging can be a big help as well
Yeah, that seems to be the general consensus. I'm stoked about this season coming up and September cannot come quick enough. I've got about 4-5 fields that I have permission to hunt with the potential of being able to hunt surrounding properties. I can't wait!!!
I got all summer the brush up on the goose calling technique and acquire some deeks... Sophomore waterfowlin season will be a success!!
