Default Goose hunting, what do I need?

There's a lot of good reading. I just don't pay attention to field hunting for geese because I don't have any fields to hunt. There's probably more to read about hunting for them in fields than there is about hunting them over water.

Hell we used to goose hunt in the prairies, just headed out before daylight with a 12 guage mossey pump, no decoys, nothin. Get in a good spot of swamp grass where they are known to be flying up, and come daylight fly at er. Now we were unsophisticated high school age redneck farm kids. Cost was gas in the car(often from dad's big tank a purple gas) and umm a few of dad's shotgun shells, nothing more. We had a blast and got our geese. Oh ya, once the hunt was over for the morning there was the beer cost..........hell it was noon somewhere :D Mostly shot with 2 3/4 inch shells, nothin fancy at all. @black

phishy - did you get to get out and do any goose hunting.

I do know the bigger the decoy the better chance of getting them to come in. Someone used to use a call that was really good for calling them in. I'm going to have to do some research to find which one it was.

Phishy,
I know I'm several months late.*!@! You started this thread several months ago and I did not catch it.*!@! I have a little different opinion.*!@! I suggest you start by doing a lot of scouting and spend as little money as you can get by with until you find out if you like watefowling.(you will)*!@! If you have camo and a shotgun you just need to check your local regs. and get a duck stamp and get a couple of boxes (50 rds.) of Hevi-shot or Hevi-steel (more expensive than steel shot) in BB size.*!@! I suggest the Hevi-shot or Hevi-steel because you will be pass shooting, the distances are usually greater than shooting over decoys. By following the flights of birds you will find the fields where they are feeding, they usually go out to feed in the early morning.*!@! Once you find their feeding fields get permission to hunt from the land owner. Getting permission to hunt from the land owner usually will be easer than hunting other types of game, because around where I live (Willamette valley, Oregon) They do a lot of crop damage. After getting permission to hunt, position yourself in a fence row out of sight and wait for them to pass over you.*!@! You will need to repeat the scouting every couple of days as once the geese have been shot at a couple of times they will be looking for other fields to feed in, but keep your eyes on the fields where you have gained hunting access within a couple of weeks other flocks will start using that area also.
*!@! :) :laugh:

We always use small white trash bags for decoys just tie a knot on one end and stick it in the ground.This only works for snows and specks,but its cheap.
