Divers in goose spread

Postby gklasako » Wed Oct 24, 2012 3:31 am

Many goose hunters will acknowledge that puddle ducks will often pitch to water spreads consisting of only geese or primarily geese. For you guys that frequently hunt goose spreads over water, do you have divers pitch in with any regularity?

I regularly hunt with divers and geese as the target. I keep my long lines in deeper water off one end of the boat and place my goose floaters off the other corner of the boat back toward the shore. If anything, the geese decoys help catch the attention of birds in the distance. The geese don't ever seem to care about the longlines. Maybe 50 yards between the 2 spreads. Mallards also drop in with regularity usually favoring the geese as company. Probably a case of mistaken identity but they die just the same.
