Do you think that you need custom decoys to kill geese?

    It has been a long time since I have used anything but customs. But there are plenty of geese that get killed with lots of other types of decoys. What is your experience? Paul

    I have used Foots all my life and I have killed a heavy amount of geese over them but, this year I want to try the custom experience. The Foots are sold (hopefully) and the X brand will be ordered in May!! I am excited!

    I hunted one time this year with dozen old Flambeu(sp) that I painted flat black. Just those, to see what happened. I killed birds. They didn't react that well till I threw out a few decoys with color. They aren't customs by no means, but when we ran our full curls and GHG, you could tell a difference.

    Geese? I honestly think the customs, do better when they are at waters side.

    Any decoy will work in the right situation or in the perfect weather condition. But if you want to be consistant throughout your entire seoson. YES

    This was my big experiment in 07. We knew their was a migration about to happen. We put out 600 silos for visal and the customs to land em. 4 Flocks landed in the silos 4 flocks landed in the customs. On traffic days we put out a spread after they are here 3 days we only use the customs. [​IMG]

    L.Berggren, How many customs did you put out, was it an equal amount.
