Goose Decoys

Postby Gorka » Thu Jan 05, 2012 7:56 am

Hello, I am new to waterfowling and I am on a budget. I want to start goose hunting on my own but I dont have the money this year to spend the $400 for a doezen Bigfoot.

If you have any ideas of what I can get to make a realistic spread for a good price. :help:

Thanks, Adam

Field or water?

or buy some floaters with removable keels!?

I water hunt and bought 6 hard core floaters for like 75$ brand new, flocked heads n all. They work awesome, as long as you remember to lock n the keels

Tar paper folded and stapled. Along with a few shells or sillouettes.

these dekes... or the final approach ones... about 230 for a dozen and they look very real

if anything else go with shells

Real Geese Silly. Take's up less space and if your in the right sport, on the "x", their all you need. Plus you can carry about 5 dozen at once. :beer:

I got my first decoys this year and they were Tanglefree goose shell decoys. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I bought them in early December and about 4 of them have chipped already, and all of them are losing paint really bad and the flocking is coming off the heads pretty bad.

Do you have a layout blind? You should if you do not. If you do not go to rogers and get one.

For your budget this is what best fits it. I have 4 dozen of these and can add them to full bodies if I want, or just hunt alone with them. I bet for $200 you can make 6 dozen or more.

There is nothing better than hunting with friends and then crackin' a couple of cold ones afterwards.
