home made goose silhouettes

4 posts in this topic

I want to make some silhouette goose decoys to add to my spread. Right now all I am using is tar paper and painting it up a little bit. Have any of you guys made your own silhouettes. If not do any of you have a better idea for me.

Thanks for any help.

All that I know is that over the past few year less is more. A dozen good full body decs and a good call are far better than nubers of less efective decs. I along with my hunting buddies have about 8 dozen full bodies and for most of the year a smaller spread works better. I have personally killed limits in a field with 3 groups on it with 6 full bodys and a well belended blind. My sugestion to you would be to just pick up 8 or 12 GHG motion decs. Good luck!

Yes, I know that full body decoys would work better but I don't have the money right now. I am not to familiar with the GHG motion dekes and their price. Probably only willing to spend $150 on decoys right now and won't spend that unless I am sure I am getting my moneys worth out of them.

Thanks for the help .

Any experience goose hunter will tell you a spread of Black and White silos are deadly on geese. You can make silos out of campain signs, cut a few different shapes and body positions paint the heads/tail white and you are good to go.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
