Ducks and Geese together

Postby UNDhunter » Sat Oct 08, 2005 9:46 pm

Just wondering how you guys would set Mallard and Goose Deeks together in a field. I have a dozen GHG shells a FB sentry, a wind sock goose, and 30 mallards. Let me know, also there have been more mallards than geese in the area. :salude:
Why won't you fly!

Ducks on one side, geese on the other with that amount of decoys. Also, ducks will fly over geese but geese aren't overly found of flying over puddlers. Have seen a few mid-air collisions over the years. I'd try and set the mallards so that your favorite shot, quartering right to left or whatever, is there if you're target is the mallards.

Just use the goose decoys and bring your duck call. From what I read, they will come right in. I am going to try it this year.
When the guns go up the geese come down.

We have had geese come in on three different occasions with no goose decoys out. Kina makes you wonder what they are thinking.

"Hey Phil, I hear em down there, but I can't see em."
"Well Bob lets get lower and take a look."
"Ok Phil."

*geese descend*

"Still nothing Phil."
"Lower Bob."
"ok"

BAM.. BAM.. BAM..

"Oh crap... PHIL!!!"
"Climb Bob, climb fast!!"

:getdown:
