    If you were going to put out a light Goose, and a Dark Goose spread how would you guys do it? We will be using about 20-40 doz. northwind Snows/Blues, and 5 dozen Hardcore Canadas...any suggestions? Dave!

    You don't indicate if you are using layout blinds, pit, etc. I would put the Canadas off to the side if using layouts, near the shooting line, but grouped together upwind where the Canadas have to pass over the line. In these parts, we don't see them mix much. I pretty much mix my snows/blues thru the spread.

    Woody...This is a surefire tecnique I am about to disclose!

    Put all your snow goose decoys in the field NEXT to the one you are hunting.

    That way, The birds will shy away from them and pile right into the ol' HC's.
