And try to get as far away, if even possible, from the guides. They have awesome sound systems and large spreads of socks and full bodies. They will pull them off of you all day. Adding full bodies or at least a couple dozen of the 5/8 shells would hels greatly. Use the bulk as your focal point like stated above. I've gone back to using a white t-shirt not a layout blind. I'm more and more convinced they see the layout blinds. Unless you can dig a little hole for the layout like stated above leave it at home. I've heard of guys waiting for the bulk of geese, and therefore the guides, to move on and then hunting them pretty hard and being successfull. A lot of people have good ideas, try some and see what works for you.
Pass along your love for the outdoors, like someone did for you, and enjoy it with your children. They are our greatest gift from God!
