Well, a lack of success usually starts with your own set up. So, heavily scrutinize yourself first and move forward from there. Plus, theyre guides, they do it everyday. They are supposed to be good at it. They likely have the know how and gear to make it happen.....We have so few details to go on though, so its hard to deduct anything from it outside theyre getting geese and your not. But if your running 4 dozen decoys and theyre running 20 dozen, guess where the birds are probably gonna go?...their field.
Make sure your hid well, your decoys arent shining, call in a realistic manner, use flagging. Does your field have appeal compared to the field the guides are in?
