Hey, just want to know what everyone else uses for decoys. Me my spread is mainly made up of silos and shells. Also under my name it says guest, anyone know how I could get that changed to sayyyy member?
Bigfoots are the best goose decoy out there hands down! I'm going to pick up another three dozen before next season. I also have a couple dozen Cabela's full bodies (not as good but I got 'em cheap). I have a couple dozen G&H standard shells that look great when staked and with other full bodies (they pretty much look like a full body).
I use outlaw silos and shells a couple big foots and a couple 42 inch supermags I have yet to add a couple goose magnets. UPS didn't bring them today like they were supposed to. Any of you guys use windsocks? I was gonna buy a pack but I was wondering if they are realistic or if they scare the geese?
I haven't used Canada windsocks in years, but I think 2 or 3 mixed around for movement would help. If the wind gets strong, put some small rocks in the sock and it will dance more than wip around in the wind.
The wind socks don't work on the big geese, they always flare of the side with the wind socks, I don't know why but they just do. I wouldn't use them for big geese. But the lessers, the socks work great on them they glide right in no proboblem. My canada goose spread consists of magnum shells, but I think I am going to buy 2 doz bigfoots by next fall.
wow brought that one up for the deep!
i like green head gear for the realism but bigfoots for durabilty
but when i buy more i will get gren head gear
i havn't ever seen a crow around a flock of canadas, but have to see
If a person is looking at buying top end field honker dekes, I personally dont think that there is a better design in realism than the Hardcore Decoy. Take a look at there site and see for urself if you havent already!
I haved used a crow decoy on a fence post behind our blind and it seemed to be a real confidence booster. Lots of birds flared at the blind but when they came back for a second and sometimes a third look, we felt the crow deke put them at ease.
With one dozen super mags we outdecoyed a bunch of those full bodied ones with the feet that you need a trailor to haul. I know it wasn't our calling, maybe the geese just wanted our field, but we wanted to set up in their field after scouting the day before. I'm not sure if the guy had "bigfoot" brand but they looked like the same thing.
I love bigfoots they can handle a beating like falling out of a trailer that opened up wile driving down a highway. we have ghg's too but the only thing i like about those is the movement thats it. bigfeet are easier to setup and the feet don't come loose
