Goose flags?

7 posts in this topic

I always see people using goose flags on tv in the fields. Does anyone ever use them on the water hunts for geese? Is there a art to it, any tips or tricks? Any one ever add a few duck dekes in the spread for the goose season only?

We are going to throw some full body duck decoys in our early season goose spread this year we have been seeing a few ducks mixed in with the geese so we are going to give it a try. If it works or not im not quit sure Hopefully it does.

We don't use our flags on water because it draws too much attention to the blind

I would say that flags are a great addition to the spread in the field. . only if you are hunting out of layout blinds or some sort of bling that lies within the decoys. . they provide a lot of movement and get the attention of them honkers. . . i know we have at least one in the blind maybe even two sometimes. . .

if we are not in a pit or in our layouts we will only use the flag if they are WAY off in the distance...sometimes I'll just run out into the spread and start flagging...

I plan to bring a flag along for water hunts this year providing the geese are quite a ways away. Also plan on using a jerk cord more than a roto so we still have a chance to decoy some geese.

I like the Browning flags because they are camo on one side so you can flip it over when you're done using it and it doesn't stand out as bad laying next to the blind.

Go with the Browning flag. You cannot go wrong with them. They are hands down the best flag out there.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
