Help with Geese Hunting?

Postby Captain16 » Sun Oct 23, 2005 10:05 am

I have never been geese hunting, but look forward to the day I do get to finally go. I just wondered how many shells, decoys most people do use in the field? Wondered what the normal, or minimum that you could use to try to get them guys in? It looks like a great time, just trying to get any info on them that I can. Thanks again :help:

I'm moving this to the goose forum. Word of advice to the novices, why not read the existing topics? There is a ton of info already posted. Learn the basics and then ask more specific ?, as general questions are pretty hard to answer being hunting strategies/blinds, etc.. vary a lot across North America. :thumbsup:

big key is scouting, find the field that birds are using, and you wont need very many decoys. all I use is about 2 doz. birds will use pretty much the same spot in the field or close to it. take note of that and you should be fine with 2 doz, I have 1 doz silos, and 1doz shells, and 4 fullbodys. But some swear by a BIG spread, I cant afford it, so I just spend more time doing my "homework". For shells, I shoot 3 1/2" 2 hevishot, and BB, sometimes BBB, depends on if I am pass shooting, or decoying. how many shells? That depends on your shooting. If you are skybusting, you could easily go through a box before you get a goose. just shoot at what you know you can hit, put your bead right on the nose of the goose.

Good luck! Let me know if you wanna shoot anything up this way.
