How far out from field edges, fencerows etc. do you guys set your Goose decoys?
Breeze/wind at my back, I’ll start them at 10 to 15 yards out depending on how thick the edge is, no decoys further then about 30 yards.
No wind, I’ll start them at 20 to 25 yards out to about 45 to 50 yards depending on spread size
Do you designate a kill zone with an opening in the spread?
I have usually put mine no more than 5 yards from edge and the furthest no more than 20 yards. Glassed birds this afternoon that were just over 3 rows in a chopped silage field. Figure 30" rows so they weren't more than 3 yards. Very little if any wind. Haven't decided yet if the X Frame gets set up in fence, brush line right in front of tree or hunt the corn field with 500 geese in it. Its going to be colder and windy tomorrow.
No further than 30 yards,kill hole centered.
Yes, normally a decent size hole in front the the blinds, sometimes I’ll add smaller holes also, again depends on the size of the spread
Sounds Good Guy's...Thanks.
Glad I’m not the only one around here that does this. Most guys call me crazy and say I need to start them at 30-40
We used to make sure re they were out always, at 25 to 30 yards until we see the goose crap and tracks in the mud less than 5 yards from the edge of the field.
I’ll run mine starting at 5 yards away. Usually I try to set heavy to the left and right down the edge to give drawing power and then run light out to about 25 yards to create the spot where I want them to land.
