In the area i hunt ducks there are also large amounts of both snow geese and canadian geese. How many decoys and how many of any spacific species do i need for about a 40 ancre been field. And what brand to guys recomend for a beginer goose hunter.
Last year I found a field to hunt on one of the last days of the season. I thew out my 5 goose floaters and was calling them in :getdown: I just got a dozen G&H shells and 3 flambeau fb's and will be getting another dozen GHG shells. The G&H shells don't look too bad, but the heads are hard to get in and out. I'd go with GHG, I think they look the best for the price.
yer looking at several hundred....those snows like numbers here in texas....the most reasonable way to do that would to go with texas rags.....we usually put out 1500 and we use EVERY one. Then for dark geese, we put out about 500. A lot of guys say the rags rip and tear to easily.....IT DOES NOT MATTER.....when using that many decoys, a few ripped here and there is not a big deal.
i cant afford much i dont have a job so it cant be more than say, $70
i know its not alot but i need money to buy duck gear also.
this is only for canadians cause im gonna get some rags for the snows which is what is mainly around, and there arn't to many, just about a hundred geese or so, and they all fly at the same time for about a 10-20 minute period.
