I know the preferred method of shooting lots of birds is by decoying, but I just want to ask if many do well by sneaking on them. Every year, we haul the deaks along, but have only tried them the first year. That was 1998. We got into a field that you couldn't hardly chase them out of, set out four dozen silos and three dozen shells. The first morning, we had three people mouth calling... nothing... wouldn't even look at us. Ran an hour and a half to Grand Forks for an electronic caller, and set up again the next morning. I think the lowest flock was 80-90 yards. We've been sneaking ever since. Of course we don't get a lot, 1 to 13, but we are not hard to please. I know some may look down on this method of hunting, but we find it to be quite challenging, much like crawling for that trophy antelope (only harder). Do the cow silos work as well as they say?
