Goose Flagging on water?

2 posts in this topic

Anybody ever tried flagging geese while on water?

A couple of the spots we hunt, we wade around in the rushes/cattails and then duck into the cattails when birds are around.

I just got to thinking that flagging may be beneficial in a situation like this. You could either use a regular goose flag or get one on a longer handle like an extendable push pole handle.

This is our first fall really hunting geese on the water, finally got enough dekes to turn some heads up in the sky.

Good idea? Bad idea?

We've been doing it for a number of years on the water. I think we started with a black shirt and have since graduated to kites. The only problem with it is when you get them wet, and everything gets wet duck hunting. They don't look very good then, sunny days in particular.

They're good for turning distant larger flocks. It doesn't neccesarily mean you'll land them. However, they are lethal on small groups and singles. It's worth a try.

      Anyone know the trout situation on square? The only info I can find is quite vague...DNR website says stocking to resume in fall 2016. I've e-mailed and called the DNR, but haven't gotten any responses from them. Just curious if anyone knows whether it was stocked or not. Would like to go there before the season closes, but don't want to waste $5 if there are no trout in there
