If you're hunting local canada geese early in the season, a couple dozen will do. If you're hunting migrating geese usually the more the better. For migrators we normally don't put out under 8 dozen.

It also depends on where you are hunting the geese, the farther south you go the more dekes you have to put out. In Texas I usually through out around 30 dozen.

Realy geese silo's are supposed to have a side that doesn't shine. I have never used them myself but am looking at getting some.

The name is Real Geese made by LSP webfoot out of Ohio on the silos in question above. Get the "pro" series as one side does not shine.

Silos are good as they are compact and many can be put into vehicle or carried out to the field. Full bodies are better---but you really need an enclosed trailer to haul them when you get over 30 of them. As for Full bodies IMHO the Big Foots are tops in price, and overall quality.

And about needing 10 dz---well lets just say those Texans think everything needs to be big down there. :lol: Seriuosly it really depends which part of the country you are hunting and time of the season. Up here in MN you can use 9 BFs during early season, 30 during reg season and 50+ for late season and do well.

I'll rank in importance what I think is most important in hunting geese.
1. Scouting. finding the birds is crucial.
2. Being on the "X" , being where the birds want to be.
3. Concealment. not being seen, layout blinds are best for this.
4. Decoys good quality decoys set up correctly.
5. Calling. Using the right type of call and at the right time

Be cautious with sillies. They tend to shine, I've sold all mine for foots
I AGREE 100%. screw those things they dont work, they crack, they scratch and are a pain if u get ones with the stakes in them, they tend to pull out of the sillies and if u dont notice u'll leave it stuck in the field. If u want to spend money get doz reg shells for around 100$ it would be better spent money. IMO

Yep, being a Minnesotan myself ill agree to that one give or take a few BFs here and there.

And yet again i didnt think that this would make a world of difference but it did. We use to dig coffines in the field and attempt to cover up but when u really get going on the calls and get a little body movement its over, imo i believe that it helped us two-folds
