Over the winter I am making goose silhoettes from corrugated plastic. Just go to the local GMC, Chev, Ford, etc... dealer and ask them for their old pole signs. They get new ones for every sale they have, and just throw them away. With a little bribe(like Timmies and donuts) they will hold on to them for ya

I am building blinds in the new holes I found last year. I am also building & putting out hen houses. I am practicing my duck & goose calling. But what keeps my mind at ease the most is crow hunting.

I am finishing up a decoy, watching the paint dry looking for something new to do.

Oh man. I love to crow hunt as well. I bought 7 of the GHG fully flocked crow decoys.
This would be my second favorite hunting sport.
Sorry to hijack your thread dumpduck.
What I use to do every winter and spring...was paint my decoys....but since I use slotted bags...I don't have to anymore. I sure "don't" miss painting them all :no:

Yes I use GHG FFD crow decoy's most of the time, I usually put them around a plastic bag to look like they are into something good, they can't resist a good peice of garbage.
I do hunt a cattle feed lot that usually holds birds on it every winter, I shoot them in the morning when they come in to feed.

I tried the garbage bag thing one time...didn't work out that well.
I use to hunt in the woods, along tree lines...where there were hangout spots, migrations routes, and places like grain and corn fields.
I tried using scraps from the local meat market...but them damn yotes got there first.
I use a owl sometimes...but never had that great of success with it. I may have to get an e-caller for them. They say it works wonders.
One other thing...we use to hunt, close to dumps...and yes more then the legal distance away from them. Had some great times back home. I don't get out as much. I was going to go this morning...but I'm waiting for the snow to disappear here a little before I do.
It's better, when there is still some on the ground...I have no idea why...but it just is.

What calls do you use, I use a Mallard tone & a Faulks, they sound the best to me.

Grand Falls and surrounding areas have lots of geese....unfortunately....alot of hunters as well go there.
We hunted there once in 2000 I think it was. It was a great hunt, by our standards back then. We were pretty new to field hunting....and made alot of mistakes. Still came home with 4-5 geese...so we still had fun.

We do have a couple feilds but like Goosehunter64 said there is alot of hunting pressure up here. You have to bring your A game evry week, tonnes of full body decoy's, good calling, & sleeping in your truck to hold a feild, but it's all worth it in the end.
How's the hunting down your way? I've thought about going down that way for a hunt.
