Fake corn

5 posts in this topic

I just bought 6 Green-Head full-body goose dekes, there was 2 plastic corn cobs in the box. What do you guys do with them? I put 1 on a plate & my lil step-sister asked if I put butter on it & then tried to take a bite grin.gif It was great, but seriously what do you guys do with them? Thnx

Seriously? We do what YOU did. Or we try to fool the squirrels with them. Or we use them in fall table decorations. Or for Halloween stuff. Or as training dummies with out Beagles.

Nobody uses them for hunting. They make you look like a dolt and a dork. And it sends most passing ducks into hysterics laughing. wink.gif

My rule is 8 cobs per decoy smirk.gif

One evening in our goose hunting camp, after consuming several malt and hops flavered health drinks, we started talking about fake corn in the decoy spread. It was pointed out that geese don't have the depth of field in their vision to tell size. So, you could make larger corn ears just like they make super-magnum goose decoys. It was suggested that a hollow ear of corn six feet long and four feet in diameter could hide two hunters inside as a blind. But can you imagine the size of the goose decoy you would have to put beside it to make it look realistic?? grin.gif

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
