Does it work????

10 posts in this topic

I was talking to my uncle today. He said that they cut up 2 by 2 boards and paint them yellow and he puts them in his decoy spread to make it look like there is corn out there. He says it draws the geese in. Anyone tried this???

never tried it, but I don't see why it wouldn't work or at least help out!

Once apon a time one of the decoy makers (quack I think)made plastic corn ears for this use. Hmmm next time the local craft store has a big clearance sale maybe a hand full of fake ears...

hey if they come to plastic water why not plastic corn.

trail and error is the best experience.

I might give it a try thanks for the idea.

Fake plastic corn is still made for hunting purposes. I've seen it advertised on line. I've been planning on getting some and trying it out.

Plastic ears of corn,I've seen it at cabelas and I also have heard of guys tearing up yellow paper into small pieces and spredding them about the decoys to look like corn on the ground.

Is it considered baiting though? GHG makes a plastic ear of corn that can be used for decoying birds.

I don't know why it would be considered baiting, well first of its not real corn. It would be like them saying that we can't use decoys either, it just wouldn't make any sense. But I guess anything can happen. A person could go one step farther and say that field hunting is not going to be aloud either because the field that one person might be hunting has food in it, which in a sense is can be considered baiting. I'm not really sure what the baiting law stats, be from hearing people ask questions about it, I think the DNR should really define the meaning of baiting a little bit better or something!

Anything left from normal agricultural practice is not considered baiting.

I knew that, I was just trying to prove my point that the plastic molded corn my by GHG shouldn't be considered baiting!

      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.
