getting decoys into a field

Postby Take em boys » Wed Sep 25, 2013 10:17 pm

the fields I hunt in Washington this year are hay fields this year farmer does not want me driving out into them like I could when it was wheat stubble also the fields I got in Idaho farmer wants no vehicles in them last year we hunted the Idaho fields once and it was a pain in the @$$ getting 5 dozen full bodies and blinds out their this year its looking like it will be me solo most the time with my girlfriend tagging along when weather is crappy (well you know blue skies not a blizzard :huh: ) so what do you guys do? I was thinking of getting a huge tarp and throwing them in their and dragging them out that way I have tried sleds (only can get like 6 on) tried game carts same as sled results

Any tips??

Long pieces of conduit. Run the conduit through the legs of the fullbodies and have two guys carry one in each hand. Should be able to carry 24 full bodies per trip with two guys. For shells, I put them in decoy bags. Can put 3 dozen in a large avery padded bag.

So if each guy grabs a bag and you both take the poles you should be able to carry 2 doz full bodies and 6 doz shells each trip.

If the farmer doesn't want you driving through the field, he surely is not going to like you dragging sleds or tarps full of decoys through his fields.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

is not the fact of digging up seed their worried about its super muddy in all the fields even if I could drive I probably wouldent all the way up to super freeze point is when it finaly hardens up and with the sled I meant in the snow

But I love the idea of the conduit stick great Idea!

Silos are the decoys for walk in hunts. Each guy can put a silo bag inside their blind.

I can land them with these and a buddy and me might be making more of them.

All good ideas,as mentioned but for your solo hunts, silos are your best bet. 6 -8 doz will kill just as good as all those full bodies ,WITH ALOT LESS FUSS! Good luck with you season!
