Full Body vs Shell vs Silo vs Windsock vs Motion Decoys

Full Body vs Shell vs Silo vs Windsock vs Motion Decoys

I am going to break it down by Canadas, Snow Geese and Ducks. Clearly this will apply to field hunting only.

Canada Geese:

- Early season: Mix Shells, Full Bodies and Silos. But Windsocks for some unknown reason it doesn't work well.

- MId Season: Full Body spread works best as they become educated. We avoid Silos an Shells. We also use full bodies that allow for movement. 

- Late season in the snow: We use shells a lot - mainly resters and sleepers. Because Geese usually lie down on the snow to melt the crust in order to reach t-the food.

- Geese hate motion deoys like flappers, flyers and spinners.

Snow Geese:

- In Spring or fall hunts we use large quantities of decoys a mix of full body, shells and windsocks. The biggest portion of our spread is windsock because we want to create the biggest possible spread. So we put out 2000 windsocks. 


- Mojos are the way to go for a field hunting. We put out 6 mojos. 3 facing the sun and 3 against the wind. Early season we use Canada Geese because they are more visible. But Later in the season as Canadas migrate south and only mallards are left, it is crucial to us full body mallards. For volume we add mallard silos. Duck also seem to dislike windsocks, flappers or flyers.
