In south central ks. Hunting almost exclusively lessers. Any thoughts on a good all around ratio of socks to silos?

Thanks
Jake

Im interested in the replies.
Im a rookie snow goose hunter, but it seemed they loved the white spread, We seamed to have them appear out of nowhere and were easier to commit.

Lessers were new for me this year, so were socks and silhouettes. Like it's been said many times, you can have too little or too much wind for socks. When the wind was right, I put out 10 dozen silos, and up to 3 dozen socks. When I wasn't travelling light, or was with others, I/we added from 4 to about 10 dozen fullbodies.
Again, this was my first rodeo, but it worked pretty good.

One tip. Lessers seemed to love landing straight into a load of 10 gauge 2's. Seriously, they basically volunteer to be shot with it, often flying intentionally into my lane as to not be bothered by 12's. Not sure I would have killed any with a lesser round.
