Snows with canada decoys

5 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has tried to decoy snow geese in the spring with just a spread of canada decoys. Im going to SD this year and i have full body canada decoys only. I was thinking since everyone uses's snow decoys and snows feed in the same field's as canada's if doing something different would work. Im sure they havent decoyed into canadiens and got shot too often. I have about 50 full bodies with flocked heads to use, what are your guy's thought's on that.

Just a thought.

You can covert those Canadian full body decoys to snow goose decoys with the Goose Glove.

I have a friend in So Dak that I hunt with that has a few dozen of these snow goose gloves and they convert the honker dec's over to snow's very easily.

What they are is like a sock that slides right over the body and converts the decoy over.

Just a thought...

We have always been able to get the snow's to commit to canadian decoy's, but when we hunt in ND it seems the honker's sure get decoy shy wwhen we have had snow decoy's out. confused.gif

We've put out our canada decoys and a bunch of us dressed in white suits by the decoys and that seemed to work. anything white works.. white windsocks work the best with the canadian decoys.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
