Quarter inch plywood cut to whatever size you decide for the base. This plywood was attached to the cedar base frame I made. I then marked off the "planted" rows, about 3-4 inches apart. Then I drilled small hole's about 2 inches apart on the marked off rows. This is where the wheat will be "planted". I went to my local hobby store, Hobby Lobby. In the flowers and plant section they carry a bag of pre dyed shaved cedar. I made small stocks and taped the bottom together. I made many of these and they kinda look like a small broom. I put them in the holes and glued them in. I then took garden soil and mixed in some latex caulk. Makes a soil paste. I used my fingers to spread it around the base and around the wheat stocks. Attached the goose through predrilled holes. Then I used a fake snow and sprinkled it on the wheat field. You can get it at the hobby store or from a taxidermy supply. The snow will set down on the wheat and look pretty real. I then used a clear coat rattle can to lightly over spray the snow. Be sure not to get it to close or it will blow the snow off. I lightly misted it from about 16-18 inches.
Thats about it. I was more than pleased with how it turned out.
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?
