Goose butts

Postby gotduck68415 » Sun Aug 21, 2005 6:43 pm

I hunt primarly for ducks, the lake I hunt doesnt attract may geese, but I do have 2 doz floaters. I was wandering if you guys thought that a few butts would help the confidence out or if Im wasting my money. :salude: :salude: :salude:

The white on their butt makes them highly visible. Our goose butts never leave the duck bag.

I use one butt..........hehehehe....cuz thats all I have, but i'm not sure it is the magic decoy. I only use 15 floaters.....and this works great for the size of water I hunt.
The butt is a great addition though.

Just wondering what size of water you hunt. I hunt on a 10 acre lake, just wondering if this will help me out. I can get them to look a few times but never realy get them to come down. :salude: :salude: :salude:

you can get by without em. A few buddies of mine tried em, but didn't notice any difference. I would say they are a waste of money.

Hunt primarily small water (30-100 acres) and use 20 butts (got an outragous deal on 'em) with up to 24 floaters. The butts always go, the floater numbers vary from 2-3 and up. Lethal combo, birds don't seem to hesitate one bit for the most part. Started using the old Herter butts (retired now) 25+ years ago, best over water goose hunting breakthrough ever in my opinion. Quite a few goose hunters on the water locally and have only seen 1 other using them, sorta hope it stays that way.

100 acres? And you call that small water? I would like to know your idea of big water. Thanks for all the help you have given me in my quest to kill more geese. :thumbsup: Im looking forward to giving the "butts" a try this year to see if it helps out. :salude: :salude: :salude:

Big water? Lake St. Clair or Long Island Sound but haven't done either in many, many years. Biggest body I hunt now is around 600 acres with an average depth of 7' and do more puddlers and geese than divers there. Long term best diver lake is only around 40 acres and just 3 miles, as the duck flies, away. Figure that one out.
