MN. I usually don't hunt, just set it up for some friends. But did last year and will this year. Had so much fun last year I went and bought a couple grand worth of gear this year! We have about 200 geese coming in to one of our wheat fields tonight and all week. So hunting should be good tomorrow!
It should be a lot of fun! The shooting is fun, but trying to figure out how to set out the decoys, blinds, playing the wind, all that crap, is just as much fun to me. I suck at calling, but may try it a few times. We will see!
Are you in layouts MO? FWIW: I like flagging and less calling for early birds. Set up EXACTLY where you saw them the night before. And get off the field early so as not to burn it out. Pictures of the shoot please!
Yes Goose Buster XL layouts, that's what is on the front of the hay rack. We fixed them up with a bunch of straw to match what is in the field. What I did today was put out 2 piles of straw in the field where the geese have been sitting. In the morning I will put our blinds where the straw piles are, and surprise Mr Goose!:D
I made it out this morning with the boys! Had our 25 by 7:30, birds didn't start flying till 7 or so. Fun morning, wish the other guy would have made it so we could have had another 5 more! I'll upload a photo when I get home!
