Part 1 A Brief Overview: What it takes to be successful
Burruck Burruck…Bucka Bucka Bucka…RrrrRrrrRrrrRrrr…The sight of a Dozen Moster Honkers dropping in your lap is second to none!
Throughout the past twenty years the strategies for decoying the all mighty Canada Honker have changed dramatically. Back in the 1980’s hiding in fence rows with a dozen home made decoys was considered hunting. Now there are custom full body decoys on the market that range from $25.00 a piece all the way up to $900.00 a dozen. Many hunters are left wondering what it takes to hunt geese these days. In my opinion there are three consistencies that will make your hunt successful. They are; Location, Concealment and Decoys/Calling- all equally important. Through the next 4 months we will be taking an in depth look into each area to give you a better idea of what it takes to successfully hunt Canada Geese day in and day out. For those of you who have hunted Snow Geese through the years, you have seen how they have evolved into a very smart and wary bird which have become nearly impossible to kill on certain days, no matter what your spread looks like. I am noticing that the Canada Honker is following in the same footsteps!
