Normally I recommend setting the decoys slightly upwind of your spread. This way it'll ensure the birds will be in range...even if they flare.

Geese always land into the wind. So you need to make a hole for them to land in while they are still landing into the wind. Set you and other hunters near the edge of the spread that is into the wind. The way to pull them even closer is to put a couple of family groups out in front while still leaving a hole open for them to land in. This makes them feel safe and they will come straight for that hole. Put your spread in a half moon shape or something that always the open end to be into the wind.

People set up there decoys in an horseshoe (which I my favorite), a, u, v, x, z, j, and w. Just try to make it look real as possible. Watch real geese at fields and lakes and see how there set up, and copy it. Best of luck.
