i agree. it depends on the situation. first off make sure that the blinds are well hid and grassed up. most of the time we set them in the bottom of the u. if the birds are not working like we want and not coming all the way in, we will move the blinds upwind about 40-50 yards. also try to place the blinds in the lowest point possible, or on the other side of a terrace. anywhere that you can be in some shadows. puts them birds right in your face. don't know if all that made any sense or not, but if you need me to explain more pm me. good luck

Begining of the season I sit right in the middle. As the season progresses and the geese get wise I place myself down wind off to the side and shoot'em trying to look at my spread.

Where you place your blinds

Postby Buckeye Goose Talker » Sun Sep 04, 2005 12:29 pm

Like most I place the blinds in the bottom of the U, but one thing to keep in mind is where you shoot the best and the safest. All of my buddies are right handed and shoot the best swinging to the left, so we place our blinds at a slight angle to the right of center and in a decending line that helps each guy to stay further out of the other guy's shooting lane. As a target shooter it became evendent to me that your head stays on the stock as a right handed shooter much better swinging to the left. You'll save alot of shells. Granted, some people have vision issues that can alter what I believe, but generally this is true.
