Hmmmm... thats a pretty good question... Id have to say over water. i hunt over an old rock quarry.. I just think the birds decoy better in water than in a field, but i guess you could decoy MORE in a field..... Id say water.

Ideally I like to hunt a field next to water,put some of the spread in the field and some in the water.If its one or the other I'd have to vote for the water.

That all depends on what the birds are using. If you know a spot on water that they are using hunt there same with a field. Around here its almost impossible to get them to come to a spot they are not using already.

I hunt in Ohio and use a haybale blindin cut corn fields. I bring in mallards, geese, and woodies. I think I prefer to field hunt more than water but change is good.

I like both if I can find it. A pond adjacent to a field (or better yet, in the middle of a field) is the icing on the cake for us up in MN. The geese will use the field for feeding and use the pond for loafing in the afternoon.

If the geese are using a specific body of water as a roost, I keep my distance from the water and stick to the nearby fields. A great shoot for one day will cost you a lot of good shoots for the remainder of the season.

Love to shoot geese in the fields. Find the best tech, is to find a corn field that is only half off and set up on the highist part of the field.. Early on in the year I place out only 30-40 deeks in small groups, later on in the season since the flocks of birds get huge. To get any shooting you are forced to place out as many deeks as one can get there hands on.
