Most of their products are made of
Most of their products are made of durable synthetic plastics, mostly nitrile. The quality is much higher than that of other plastics including latex. When you order your v-boards through Bulk Nitrile Gloves, the same durable plastic is used and you can order anywhere from 1 to 100 boards at a time.
They are made from tempered spring steel. Steel will not deform when being inserted into the hardest of soil. For added protection, our stakes are powder coated (not painted) black to eliminate rust and to blend with the decoy and surrounding.
I have shot plenty of geese over silos and found them to be quite effective. I only quit using them when our geese were starting to figure them out because so many guys were using them. In my opinion, if you are in an area where few are using them, they are the cat’s meow.
“I’d still recommend three dozen silhouettes per hunter.
In my opinion, silhouette decoys are an incredible option for may goose hunters. Goose hunting with silhouettes can help hunters on a budget still be able to afford a good size decoy spread. In addition, silhouette decoys are easy to store and transport which is a great benefit compared to bulky full body goose decoys.
Egg weights work good… You can also take the long wrap around lead weights, cut em in half, drill a hole on it and turn 1 weight into 2….. Not a fan of leaving decoys out though…
4 oz is plenty if you are going to be hunting in cover: timber, brush, or even rice fields. But in open water I use 6 oz weights or even some 8 oz. Thats because in open water you are going to be carrying your decoys in the boat and not on your back.
Cement board is the most common and widely-known backer board. … On the downside, the cement boards are heavy, somewhat difficult to cut and can leave abrasive sandy crumbs that can damage tubs and shower bases if you’re not careful. Cement board is a good, reliable backer board that works well on both floors and walls.
I used cement board as the ship lap because cement board is fire resistant. … Then, fill in the space from top to bottom with the cement boards you pre cut. I used liquid nails and some finishing nails to attached the cement board to the wall. Use a level to level each piece of cement board as you go.
While most light goose hunters still use 1000 or more decoys in a field, using as little as 300-400 can work under ideal conditions. Any combination of full bodies, shells, silhouettes, wind socks and rags will work for light geese.
Both ducks and geese, along with swans, are waterfowl. … Ducks have 16 or fewer bones in their necks, while geese and swans have between 17 and 24 neck bones, according to the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary. Geese and swans also typically have much longer necks than ducks.
Just cut a piece of 1/4 inch thick masonite to fit roughly down the center line of the decoy, and fill any small cracks with modelling clay or wax. Cover it well with a mold release agent, and lay up with fiberglass cloth and resin. Build up the layers one at a time.
Geese, like ducks, have a 360 degree range of vision. 180 degrees on each side, both horizontally and vertically. Conversely, most humans only have a 150 degree total range. What is this?
Geese have incredible vision and can easily spot glare and frost on painted decoys. Fully-flocked decoys like Avian-X’s AXF Series help eliminate this problem, giving hunters an advantage over wise, late-season birds. Monocular vision eliminates the intricate 3-D views that we see as humans.
Yes they do work but you have to add one or two floaters. Happy Hunting.
The trend in goose hunting is to use bigger and bigger decoys, but I’ve found that geese will often finish better to smaller decoys, maybe because of the depth perception factor. And if everybody around you is using oversized decoys, going to a smaller decoy might actually give your spread a better look.”
