goose decoy socks

7 posts in this topic

I have seen somewhere a sock that you can put over a canadian decoy to convert it to a snow decoy. Anyone know where to find these?

Wal-Mart. Fruit of the loom tube socks.

I just put regular socks over my honker decoy heads. It works.

The product you are thinking of is called the goose glove. I have never used one or seen them used but I have done the same as boilerguy with old socks. If you are planning on buying the gloves I would get enough for around half of your decoys that you want to convert and put socks over the heads of the others to make some blues.

So really these are prety good for turning canadas into snows/blues? Are they for shells or full bodies? I have never seen these, but have lots of canadas and no blues, so this could help me out tons. Thanks for the info guys!!!

Cool.

I had a seamstress custom sew up some out of pillow cases to fit my full-body canada's and they look awesome. I custom painted them to look like all phases of snows and blues.

Guys, thanks for all the help. I did find the goose gloves, but holy hanna $57 a dozen. I like the pillow case idea much better. Boiler guy, great tip and I have a whole sack of old tube socks for that. Problem is in Canada when using an electronic call you can't have any canadian or blues in the spread. All decoys have to be white phase. Again thanks for the replies, I appreciate the help.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
