Today i got to attend a Fred Zink siminar at Bass Pro shops. Let me tell you he knows a lot about goose hunting. He gave a talk about decoy spreads, calling, camo, and scouting. I know with the information he shared i will kill more geese. He knows what he is talking about. So how do you guys set your decopys and how do you call? He said this," If you were a goose feeding in a field, would you call for more geese to come take your food? Or would you give them a warning."
Other, cause it depends on what direction the geese in the distance are heading. If they are coming my way I won't do much until the get within 200 yards or so. If they aren't coming my way, I'll flag 'em.
Nothing against Fred, but who was his mentor? Tim Grounds-the grand pappy of the SR calls and modern Honker hunting. Even Tim will tell you-do not overcall geese. Too many guys hear the contest calling and think that is what you are supposed to do in the field :thumbsdown: Far from it.
