A place to hunt, I really like FA blinds but here very good things about rogers goose buster and it depends on your area you hunt about how many decoys you will need my area I run 5.5 doz full bodies 1 dozen shells 2.5 dozen sleepers and 17 silos I don't always put that many out and sometimes I put more than that out just depends

Hunting where you do, 5-8 dozen Big Al's Silos will be just about right. You'll be getting birds on the start of their migration and they should be that much easier to hunt than by the time they make it to the midwestern U.S. A nice low profile blind like the Tangle free Originator, the Rogers Goosebuster LP/LP XL or one of the FA blinds should work well too. Good luck and thank you for your service! :thumbsup:
