What are the chances of me calling in a goose with only duck decoys out?

We got them to come over real low yesterday to take a look. They were well within range. You can do it. If we would've had one goose floater the other day we would've limited out on Canadas

We were on a lake one time and had out nothing but duck decoys. 8 canadas came over the top of us then turned and came straight in to the decoys locked up. We got 5 of em, no calling, and no goose dekes.

singles will come into about anything if there working the water.calling should at least bring the singles in.

I've only decoyed a few singles that i can remember, but have had many opportunities at low passing shots. It can be done, but with any consistency? Prob not. My .02
