Christmas Goose Expensive this year

2 posts in this topic

I think I'm suffering sticker shock. I just can't believe how much goose decoys are costing these days. Wow!

I just added another dozen GHG Flocked Head Floaters to the spread. Over 3 bills for a dozen floating honker decoys. Yikes.

If this keeps up, I'm going to need a bigger canoe to carry these things in. blush.gif

Oh well, the guys & gals I work with will appreciate having honker again at the X-mas party. I brought goose last year in a crock pot with cream of mushroom soup and it was gone in no time. Even the people I thought wouldn't touch it said it was absolutely delicious.

Couple days left boys. grin.gif

Thats why I buy the cheap flambuea decoys. Cab have a dozen for less than $80 and never had a problem with them and shot many geese over them. Some I have held up more than 5 years and never even had to touch up the paint on them.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
