About 15 years back a farmer was having trouble with canadas eating his rye that he had planted as a cover crop. He asked me to shoot them. The only hide was a rock pile. I hate rock piles. If you are hiding in them the birds dont come close . Well I shot a few geese and saved his rye. I didn't get the shoot that I should have. It got me thinking. How do I hide in any type of cover? You must be able to hide in stubble,black dirt. corn rye, green fields every type . How do you do this? Simple you must look like a goose! Do any of you remember the goose suit. This was patened by some farm folk in Minn. I had been doing this for 5 years before they came on the scene. I thought about selling the product but decided there was not going to be much money in it. I was right tthe guys who marketed it quit. I use this method about 80 % of the time. I have 6 black coveralls They must be 100% cotten. I have bleached these so that they have a soft gray color. the color of a canada. Some of them I spray painted a feather pattern on the back. not necessary. Hats are black with a brim and ear flaps. I paint a white cheek patch on the hat ; ear flaps are worn down to cover skin If you do not wear glasses you can camo your face totally black and you can look directly at the geese. the will not spook. If you use this method you must have very large decoys. I use flambeau full bodies huge and g/h super mags. The decoys must big or this method does not work. You can layout or you can be in a kneeling position. Big guys must layout their profile is too high. Movement is acceptable it should be slow no fast moves. This means you can change position for a better shot. I stay in akneeling position. I turn with the geese so I can call and read the geese. I call the shot in my spread so I must be on top of it. This is a deadly method I have used for over 15 years. I like the folks on this form and wanted to share this with them.
