High(er) Geese

Postby HonkShooter » Thu Jan 05, 2006 3:36 pm

The geese I've been having fly around me have been up there and I'm wondering what kinds of calls you guys use to get them down and come take a look at you. I feel like I've tried everything, any ideas? The place I'm hunting is more trying to run some traffic so .... any tips? Thanks

Flaging is way more effective on high geese than a call...

Flagging is definitly not going to hurt you, also big spreads help bring geese from a far

:withstupid: flagging, you might also want to look at a hidgon finisher flapper. They work great too. Just havent figured a way to use on on the water yet. I am sure there is a way.

I'm with everyone else on this one. Flag em and blow some strong hail calls at em. It is still tough to get high flying birds to come take a look though. This time of year they are going where they are very comfortable. Also, as ishoot said, get your spread as big as possible.

we use a spread of close to 200 decoys on some days with up to 6 or 7 people calling and 2 higdon flappers. we have had flocks of 100 birds drop down from a mile high into our spread.

I have had flocks of 100+ birds come into 10 bigfoots and 4 bigfoot floaters and I have had flocks of 100+ want nothing to do with over 200 decoys 1/2 of which were fullbodies and the rest shells :yes:
