Goose Hunting Tips

Postby colebyrob » Fri Sep 28, 2012 4:13 pm

I have never been goose hunting and I have a corn field that has about 25-35 geese coming into it every afternoon before they come to my pond right at dark. what would be the best way to hunt them. I don't have any goose decoys and am not a very good goose caller. Would mallard decoys and a Mallard call work? Any tips on hunting them would help tremendously.

How large of a field is it? Can you hide in the corn? I would suggest hunting the field because they might roost in the pond and if you shoot their roost you may never see them again.

It is a large field and there is a dried up pond with trees around it that they fly over about twenty feet off the ground. I was thinking about just setting up in the trees and shoot them as they fly over.

lay in the field and cover up with some stubble at the last place you saw them or in the closest area. Get a black shirt or material and make a flag out of it. When you see them comming in the distance start waving it. When then get about 200yds or less away, stop waving and pray that they come your way. Other then that, with no decoys or calling skills, your very limited. And no on the duck decoys, leave them home along with the call.
Theres always someone out there thats better then you. I'm that guy.

Correct on the ducks. Don't bring them.
Even if you had just a few decoys, you'd be in much better shape. Even one really...
Don't shoot their roost.

This is the best idea, don't over hunt them maybe once a week and you'll get more chances at em.
