Decoy upgrade

Recommended Posts

tealitup

For many years I could only afford the cheapest decoys - which worked. But, I finally upgraded my goose floaters.  Can you see the difference? 

 

Gnh used 6 years with paining touch ups verses avian x.

I like them!!! I added some additional floaters this year. Haven't had much chance to put them to use yet. But it's coming

They look nice but there's nothing wrong with cheap decoys!  You should paint your old ones straight up black and white.  The geese can see them from way further away.

      I'm fairly new to goose hunting (I'm a bow hunter) and I hunt with a few guys that are equally as new.  We all live and hunt in the north east metro about an hour from Minneapolis.  Being new to the sport, our goose calling needs some work.  Does anyone know of someone that gives goose calling lessons?  The lessons don't need to be in the northeast metro, we can travel.

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      Hello all!!!
      After several years of separation and division it looks like it's time to build our forum back up from the ashes. Those of you who have been here before, thanks for coming back. Those who are new, thanks for stopping bye. 
      I figured a good place to start is a decoy thread. Let's make this thread the "new decoy thread" for the 2016/2017 season. It doesn't need to be a decoy that you made. If it is, fantastic!!! Feel free to share anything you made here. We will be happy to share in your success. If you have any decoy questions feel free to ask. 
      If you purchased a decoy that you are excited about, let us share in your excitement. I really enjoy seeing other people's decoys and seeing what other people are buying and using helps me to get ideas on what to make in the future. Please share, like I said, this isn't an exclusive thread for decoy makers, this is a thread for all of us. Custom made, one of a kind, or store bought, let's see what you've got. 

      admittedly, not a spearing decoy, I have several in progress, but nothing ready for pictures yet. But a decoy thread needs a decoy picture to start. I will have some spearing decoys in a few days. Stay tuned.

           Decent first three weekends of the waterfowl season in central MN. Been water hunting only so far, on permanent water. Ducks are dispersed with all the temporary flood water around from all the rain. Crops are slowly coming out, will probably be behind schedule due to wet conditions. We have harvested mallards, wood ducks, BWT, GWT, shovelers, pintails, redheads, ringnecks, ruddy ducks,and Canada geese so far. Locals the first two weekends, but the cold front last week move a lot of local ducks out and a few new birds moved in out of ND and Canada. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I am buying new decoys this year and am selling decoys that I am replacing. Most have string/no tangle line and strap weights. 

      8 drake/male mallards
      7 hen/female mallards
      3 drake/male pintail
      3 hen/female pintail 
      4 blue bill

      Make me a reasonable offer. Dog not included
       
      if if you are a young hunter who needs some decoys to get started get a hold of me. It might just cost you some gas to pick them up.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
