Goose/Duck field set-up

5 posts in this topic

What have you guys found to be the best layout for a field with both ducks and geese? I know geese don't like mojo's. I've also heard geese don't like to land over ducks. What do you guys think.

I've shot them over duck decoys and mojos...when its running they sometime flare just outside the spread and close enough to make a shot. Usually one of us will run and turn em off and wings flat so the white is not sticking out and they'll come in, as of my experience. When hunting field for ducks and geese, I put the goose decoys around the blinds to cover up and in a "U" shape then the duck decoys up front the blinds but enough room for the geese to land in that hole...spread the duck decoys around.

Or else if you are worried about geese not landing with duck decoys out, just bring all goose decoys and do what youve been doing and bring a mojo or two then the ducks will come in, remove it/turn it off when you start shooting geese. Works well.

We were out this weekend on a private field in the western part of the state that I have access to. We ran the air lucky with 12 GHG field mallards, and 6 GHG hot buys in the water puddle next to where we were hunting.

Honkers did not mind the mojo at all. We had the layouts in the middle of the geese...15 yards to each end of the decoys. both honkers and mallards finished nicely in the pocket. We also shot alot of the greenheads hovering right over the mojo waiting to land...bad mistake!!!

My buddies an I have learned that geese dont like robo ducks. So we try to shut them down when we see geese. Geese will come in and land over ducks but ducks will not do the same. If we set out both we put geese on upwind side with 15 yd gap between geese and ducks. Seems to work good. Also flagging is a very important thing. We use this for both because there attracted to movement.

I also like to set up in a U shape or some kinda of a V to play the wind. I have had good luck with ducks (mallards) landing with goose decoys. We just put them way off to the side of the geese.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
