hey guys I have just found this site and want to say right on. Nice to read your comments and new little hints. Fairly young Goose Hunter here and I have heard of this flagging. Any pointers as my brother and I are very good spotters and definitely put the pre-time in. Is flagging for other flocks or what is the purpose and how.

Always remember...you're imitating a goose. Use them to imitate a flying goose from a far distance, and when they're within 200 yards imitate a goose stretching it's wings. So 1-3 short flaps at a time is plenty.

I just started flagging, and havent had much success yet, however I watched a guy a couple of hundred yards from me call Honkers away from my spread with a flag. I was impressed and bought a flag immediately.

I plan to test my flagging skills in a couple of weeks hunting Honkers in Tule Lake (Northern CA).

Flagging works wonders. I have seen huge flocks turn and commit with just a few flaps.

The way we do it is, if the geese are kind of far out, we flap the thing about 4-5 times and put it down for about 10-15 sec. When they get close we leave it alone unless they flare.

i agree with Jeff Foiles on this subject for those of you have seen one over the limit. flagging is one of the most important parts of getting the attention of a goose. always remember dont over do it spot the geese flag the geese easily let them come to you. dont do crazy figure 8s or any thing shake firmly bring up and down once geese get fairly close stop flagging and let the decoys and calling do the rest they trie to pull out or circle flag lightly.

I fully agree with wildgoosehunter15... Get their attention, bring em your way when they are comitted your way set it down and let those things in the field that you have spent hundreds or thousands of dollars on do their job!! (DECOYS)

Just a little pointer when you are flagging geese. When they are all locked up I just flip one wing on the ground and it has not failed me yet.
