Geese afraid of mojos?

Postby Threejs » Sun Nov 17, 2013 2:26 pm

Do you guys take down your mojos when it is time for geese to come in? I wondered if the geese didnt like the motion. Maybe it will attract them too?

Here in Louisiana, the geese see them as flashing "Hunters Here!!!" signs.

I turn them off, when geese are working. However, early season a single came right in and landed with the mojos on. I think the goose was a yearling and didn't know any better.

Geese hate them. Turn them off with a remote when geese are coming.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

I do not and will not hunt a mojo or wind duck type decoy when geese hunting. Flares them everytime around here.

Use a flag when goose hunting.

Im gonna be getting remotes for mine this year. Cant tell you how many times we have had geese flare off us at 75 yards because of them. I only use mojo's in fields for ducks but usually the same field has geese using it as well.

Yes for the most part Ive had them flare but there are a few thing u can do. Like remotes but trying to get the wings white down is hard. Over water the geese I have shot dont mind a floating mojo as much as one on a pole. so having them low to the water has helped. in a field where we have both ducks and geese we us six wing things spread out through the duck BF. Geese dont mind the wing things. also I've killed plenty of singles up to four ish pack of honkers over water with a spinner. You get any more birds then that and they start to not like them. also if the spinners are on and you have lets say a three pack working, call them hard all the way to the shot! don't give them anytime to think about or look at anything else but the "geese" that are so happy that they showed up :smile:

I often wondered if something with a variable speed would make a difference. Sometimes geese like a little motion but not to much. It would be interesting to see what the results of dropping the speed to 10-12 revolutiona a minute would have.

Try it for two seasons and report back.
