I'm a duck hunter and I'm getting into the Snow geese and Canada's. I'm in Southwest Iowa and going to hunt Spring snow goose with electric calls. I'm 14 and I'm stripped for cash. I'm saving milk jugs and I'm going to buy 150 Texas rags. I need more decoys. Does anyone know where I can get cheap full bodies, rags,socks, ANYTHING to get more decoys in my spread!
150 texas rags will get the job done if you are on the x. Scout, scout and scout for where the birds are and what field they are feeding in and want to be in. I often hunt alone with 100 to 200 windsocks and pull down birds if I am where I want the birds to be. If you hunt from a layout blind, stubble that thing in to where you can barely see out of it and stubble it in even more. For cheap decoys, check out craigslist, you might be suprised at what you can find on there. I personally feel that motion is key to having rags and windsocks bouncing around to make them look like a feeding flock. You might be able to find some used and abused duck decoys that you can spray paint into snow goose floaters. For some fullbodies, might check out this company for some unpainted fullbodies and paint them yourself. http://thedecoyfactory.com/Price%20List.html
And welcome to the addiction. Once you get that first white tornado over top of you, it becomes very addicting.
