Goose in with the Woodies

Postby bkmaine » Sun Apr 28, 2013 1:01 pm

In Maine we get mostly wood ducks in the early season, maybe a few local mallards. We also have an early goose season the month before it opens up for ducks. What do you think about throwin some goose floaters in with woodie decoys? I'm thinkin about days when 90% of the birds I see are woodies...

Throw them to the side of your duck decoys. Here with all the farm ponds we hunt, we run no more than 2 dozen duck decoys and then off on the side we run maybe a dozen goose floaters.

Geese can be skittish when it comes to ducks. Keep that in mind..and play around.

Ive never seen a wood duck sitting near geese, but I have killed them in the same places. For gray ducks and baldpates we mix the decoys right in together and do well on them.
