What to buy for my spread?

Postby Huntman27 » Tue Aug 27, 2013 12:57 pm

Right now I have 1 doz of the higdon wobblers, 4 full body alpha feeders, 6 ghg full body feeders and about 20 shells ( half feeders, half lookers). I would like to get a few sentrys.I like how the higdon wobbler feeders look but don't really like the sentrys that I got. Any advice what I could do to beef up the spread?

I was thinking about getting some silhouettes but kind of hesitant because from later October on the geese become real weary and I would probably like to get another 4-6 full bodies in a variety pack. I was thinking about the b2s since cabelas has them on sale but I've heard some bad reviews on them.

Running all Silos from opening day til the last sunset. Geese don't care if it's a full body goose they are decoying too or their "2D' brothers. Just saying. I've ask em and..... they ain't talkin :hammer: :hammer:

Personally, i don't think geese get leery of decoys, i think it's more the lumps (blinds) and noise (calling). Sillos work. I don't even own a fullbody anymore.

Mix them in with your full bodies. But the feeders and resters near your blinds.

Spread your dekes out at least 6 feet apart

Go get yourself another dozen FB goose decoys. Silouttes will decoy geese but I like geese to be a foot off the ground when I shoot so I use Full Bodies.

So birds don't finish or land in a sillo rig? That's strange...

It all depends on the presure in your area and where you are located. Id highly recomend going with fullbodies though.

I'm thinking I'll either go with some more higdon alphas or bigfoots.

Since I have had some of my best hunts over a spread of real geese silos, I think you know what decoy I'm going to recommend :yes:
