Ideas for homemade rags?

Postby Blackfoot down » Sun Jan 29, 2012 9:30 pm

Guys,
Looking for some help... I use to go to the Bootheel and snow goose hunt by jump shooting from ditches and levees. I may get a chance to go back this year after about 5 years of not being able to go. Only problem is I may only have one propertyto hunt. It is half corn stubble and half rice paddy. I would be stuck only being able to use this property so jump shooting is not much of an option. I am going to have to come up with a spread. I only have a dozen snow shells from starting a spread years ago. I need to add a couple hundred deeks fast and really cheap... Does anyone have any good ideas that they have used? I have heard of Wal Mart bags on wooden dowels, but...I think that sounds iffy...

There are a lot of people selling snow goose stuff on craigslist right now in our area, check southern illinois, stlouis etc. Some is going pretty cheap. Might be the way to go in a hurry!

You could also try the tyvek sleeves.

Any ideas on where to buy Tyvek rolls/sleeves? I asked at Lowe's if they sold Tyvek and the guy looked like I just asked to mate with his dog!
