swimmng

Postby renegadeduck » Wed Aug 22, 2012 6:05 am

i was thinkinng of doing something alittle creative this season in terms of concealment. this early season i think im gonna take body bootin to the extreme. i hunt a cove in whch geese love to land on the far side which is not my property what im gonna do is set up 14 floaters cclose to my property and wear a baithing suit, a brown t-shirt to match the water and a face mask n when the geese come in im gonna grab a decoy put it infront of my face and get real low in the water in which my face gun and hands are the only thing above the water. what u guys think. will it work? should be fun. the lows around my parts are only 70s and i will bring towels and extra clothes leave em in the boat.

Make sure you take that Go-pro vid and post up the results. :lol3:

How did the swimming work out for you?

it actually worked out really well my 2 cousins and i sat down sunk up to our thighs in mud then had our shoulders n head ouot of the waterand took a a branch with a bunch of leaves n put it infront of our face like something washed into the marsh. we sat on a plastic mat so we wouldnt sink any further. the only problem was our calls stayed in the water pretty much the whole hunt. and my cousins phone bit the dust. n our shells got soaked but it was fun. lol the first day we didnt hunt like this we shouldve woodve killd more birds but the second day we woodnt have goten any birds if we didnt set up like we did.

You may find the video "Goose Blind Dump Box" filmed on the Susquehanna River interesting. You stand in the water behind an oversize rotating silhouette decoy, complete with gun and shellholder. It might be an upgrade to what your doing, and it'll keep your shells dry.
