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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
