    Here are some pictures of last weekends hunt. We have been utilizing a smaller spread of a little under 300 decoys, keeping it as lifelike as possible. We have had good results with this spread in terms of getting the birds in close, including landing many of the birds.

    My cousin (shown) shot this double banded snow. It was the first bird in and landed in the decoys right in front of me. After I unloaded on the flock in the air, I saw the band as it jumped right in front of me. Unfortunately, my gun was empty and all I could do was hollar at him to "shoot that banded bird".

    That banded goose will be an old one. We shot one last year that was double banded like that and it was banded in 1986 and was at least 1 year old when banded.

    Post up the banding info when you get it.

    The guy that did the banding said those plastic leg bands werent supposed to last for more than a few years. Needless to say he was very happy to see it last this long.

    Ours was very thin, almost to the point of falling off.

    Goosedad and Blake, I made the decoys from the Blacklabdecoy snow goose full body mold. One of the head molds I have was of my making. Since you can cut and carve the foam, with three heads and one body, you can create a lot of different positions. I also add additional foam (expandable foam insulation from a can) to certain areas and shape it to create additional looks.
