Painting Snow Goose dekes to Canadian

2 posts in this topic

I have 4 doz G&H Snow Walker goose decoys that I would like to paint. I want them to look like Canadians, should I just paint them all blackish them flock them? What type of paint and where would I get it?

You can get special decoy paint from Herters and probably other places. I'd buy a canada kit of paint and do them up right. Use another decoy as a model and get it as close as you can. I think the more realistic you can get it the better off you'll be. Geese are getting smarter and the decoys need to be better than back when guys were just using hunks of old black tire and such...

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
