Try small family groups. If you have 16 decoys, try, say, a family of 5, a couple fours and a 3 on the outside. Those Hard Cores are nice...but my buddies are getting banged up pretty good so make sure you spend a lot of time babying them.

As for Canada rags.....I only use full bodies and swear by them. If you're hunting a high pressure area I don't recommend looking into rags.

Thanks admin. Last season we could turn them but they would come over pretty high. I hunt on public land adjacent to refuge. Do you have any tips here other than full body decoys? Should I simply continue to look for a better place to hunt?

I would recommend usign reel geese silhouttes with a mixture of full bodies. They are the cheapest decoy that works very good. The more dekes the better or at least thats how it is here in texas

Around Lubbock there's a pile of little ones, and I agree numbers are the name of the game.

I'm not a big fan of silhouettes because of their shine. I own 10 dozen and I only pull them out when I need to add more to my full bodies and when there's definite clouds. Different strokes for different folks...

Should I simply continue to look for a better place to hunt?
There's NO such thing as too much scouting, always be on the lookout for new areas.

We have been getting quite a few bigguns around Lubbock. They decoy better to the big spreads than the little ones do.

If you are worried about the shine on your silos, check out the Pro series Real-geese. They have a kind of cloth on one side that kills the shine.

What kind of silhouttes do you have admin. The real geese have a finish on them that does not shine. Real geese have two different kinds of silhouttes and I have never had a shine problem with anything but the silhouttes from outlaw.
