attracting snows

Postby Cupped-n-Committed » Mon Nov 29, 2004 5:36 am

We field hunt for canadians and would like the opportunity to shoot a few snows if it presents it self.

1. Can snows be called into a group of canadian dekes?

2. Will only a few white dekes due in a seperate family group?

3. Any other advice to draw in snows when hunting canadians?

I have kiiled them over darks, but only when they are flying with a group of canadas. It usually takes alot of white and noise on the ground to get their attention. You might get a few juvies, but don't expect flocks of them to come on in. We set out 300 snows and blue windsocks along with some shells and silos. Geese wouldn't even look at us. We do put white socks over our bigfoots heads and make them double as blue goose decoys.

If you are hunting for Canadas i would buy a snow goose flag then when you see canadas comming you can put it down or take it down.

Honks are snobs and really do not like to fly over snows. But Snows will readily fly over Honks. When both have been feeding in the same filed together, I do use both decoys. Honks on down wind side of spread and snows upwind 20 yds of space between them.
Nothing like shooting a mixed bag of Honks, Snows and ducks in the morning in the fields. :thumbsup:

Ive had smaller groups of snows coming into my canadas locked and ready, and ill only have about 35 snows out, but when you get into the bigger flocks, its hard to seal the deal.
