This is my twin with the goose we both shot at the same time yesterday, the other is me.
I will do that next time. It was cloudy when we set them out that morning. They move good in the wind dude.You have those shells up to high, push the stakes further into the ground(less shadows)
The ground wasn't frozen at all yesterday. It's better to have them on the stakes, get some movement out of them. I like to put decoys on the ground in the snow.[up]Don't use stakes put shells directly on ground A) No shadows. B) Don't have to punch holes in frozen earth.
That's a good idea. I usually use a masonry star punch and hammer, like you said just for the first few inches.....If you are hunting in frozen ground, bring a cordless drill with a 5/16 or 3/8 bit....Punch through the first inch or 2 of frozen ground and teh stakes go in like butter
I contemplated that thing a couple of times, but to me it's not worth that much money, all I got is tools being in carpentry and masonry, chances are I have something that will do the trick.just incase you have nothing better to spend money on. but hey its on sale right now
