Decoy upgrade

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      My in-laws used to live just down from morning star. They weren't on the lake but they supposedly had access to the lake near morning star, some lake easement for residents living on the opposite side of the lake.

      One last morning on the water this past Saturday before we took the docks and lifts out in the afternoon. Trolled the Morning Star bay for crappies. It was slow with just 2 or 3 crappies, although they were big ones. We could have kept them but chose to release. Also got a couple of northerns. I got skunked but my girlfriend got a good size northern. Biggest fish that any of the four of us caught on Saturday.

      Well, actually going on family life expectancy.  Not many man on my dad's side made it past their late 60's.  On the other hand my wife's side most lived to late 80's into 90's.  So again, I really don't want to leave me wife in an area she is unfamiliar with or know anyone.  If she should pass away before me for some unknown reason.  Yes, they will find me dead in a cabin in the woods.

      Well I had to go north this weekend with the predicted weather and boy did it not disappoint!   What a great weekend of perfect weather!!  Hit up Gull Lake Saturday afternoon equipped with a dozen lite pike minnows and a plan to move until we graphed fish and move if they don't bite.  First stop we searched and found one spot with bait balls and a few fish but nothing was biting so we went searching.  Searched alot of ground over the next hour and half and didn't mark a fish, so we went back to the spot with fish marked and as we pulled up there was one boat right on the spot...catching a fish!!  We trolled around with this boat exchanging information and catching fish for the next 2 hours.  We ended up catching 9 throwing back a 25" and keeping 8 from 13" up to 23" that was gut hooked.  Fished in 20-32' of water using lindy rigs with lite pike minnows.  Some fish we would give a lot of line to and they would have the bait swallowed and other times we would give line and find the hook just barely in the lip!  Missed a lot of hook sets but could not beat what was possibly the last fishing trip of the year for me...GOOD LUCK

      I have been gearing up getting ready to walk again after 10 weeks!  I have been lucky enough to get out fishing a few times and can't wait to get out in the deer stand...bad thing is I have a basketball tournament for my 4th grade son on opening weekend of deer season and I am the coach!  Oh well I have used enough patience getting this far, what are another few days!  Otherwise not much for me to do...
