We did use kites on Canada's last year in the early season and had great success in attracting birds towards the decoys. Tom had a Outlaw kite that was rigged to a fishing reel with the line run through a eyelet at the edge of the decoys. He would crank it down tight to the ground as they got close enough to flag.
I ordered one from Outlaw about the time they went toes up did not get it. Still looking.
Ron I think there is a place in TX that makes them. I think Texas is in there name. They make windsocks, rags, white coats, crane decoys. I think they sell the kites for like 15 bucks for 3 of them. I hear they are pretty cheaply made (probably so people don't cry if they get shot up)(not that anyone would mistake a kite for a goose) however they are effective. I guess I have another thing to add to my list! Good thing I have a part time job! :eyeroll: Leo
