The reason I ask I put in two small pits on two fields and my back is killing me filling them back up. We hunt almost exclusively winter wheat, often only inches high, more dirt than green. Most of the people and my daughters I took on hunts this year likely wouldn't have killed geese other than hunting from a pit. If it wasnt for a friends fields I would be using layouts What type of hides are you shooting geese out of most often This year other than the pit in winter wheat I used my layout in regrowth winter wheat, a layout along a lake , cattails along the river. sage brush on a sand flat Whats your hide?
