goose decoys on longline?

Postby donell67 » Wed Sep 07, 2005 7:42 pm

i have a dozen new bigfoot floaters and i have some g&h floaters. ill be hunting a big river on an island. was thinking about putting the bigfoots on a longline because it is easier to do or would it be more effective to just put them out as singles in a group. thanks for any help.

with that many decoys you should just put them on single lines.

I longline 4-6 goose deks on a line several of these and a few singles with some field deks on land and your good to go.

I think, as noted earlier, with that few decoys in the spread, a long-line is not the way to go.....on the other hand, most of us have seen a line of geese moving on the water in 'formation'.....what I usually do is to put five or six on a mother line as a group swimming into the spread while in 'formation'
