Hi all, just thought I'd ask what some people might be using for homemade Canada goose decoys for field hunting? I already realize that the best thing to use is large very realistic, quality decoys. Trouble is, I cannot afford this now or any time soon...not even before next year! I'm 55 and mostly retired hunting on a very small budjet. I have been hunting various game all my adult life and have aquired a few decoys, but right now all I have is 3 store bought shell Canada goose decoys. My freind and I have been doing fairly well for our area...not exactly a waterfowl haven or real strong flyway (north/cental WI), but at times not too bad. I'll just say this area is not like where I used to hunt just outside of Horicon, WI. Anyway, I have my own design in mind already and I do have a technical background....although this certainly isn't rocket science by any means! I was just wondering what other people may have had success with working on a very tight budjet. I do like to keep things as simple as possible for many reasons, I have been known to cobble quite a few different things together...sometimes necessary sometimes not! My design is for what I will call "shell decoys", the geese we've been encountering are smart and probably educated to some extent so I'd prefer to NOT use silhouette decoys. I also want my decoys fairly large, approx. the size of an average Canada goose or slightly bigger.
