Goose decoys are designed to help hunters capture more geese during the hunting season. The wrong decoy has the potential to ruin an entire day of hunting, while the right decoys will lead geese to your area for easy targets. Because geese fly in flocks, most goose decoys should be positioned among at least a dozen other decoys to be most effective. In addition to purchasing quality goose decoys, you should experiment with different patterns of positioning the decoys to determine which works best for the geese you would like to attract.
Goose decoys come in different types and positions. Feeder decoys come in full-bodied and shell designs and show geese in feeding positions to make live geese think the area will provide an ideal place for feeding. Goose socks, goose flags, and spinning-wing decoys are decoys that create the illusion of moving geese. Other decoys are designed to float in water or contain special coloring for hunting in the snow or other conditions. Because geese are only able to see from the side, many decoys also come in two-dimensional models, making them less expensive than their three-dimensional counterparts.
Rated as one of the top goose decoys sold by Bass Pro Shops, Big Foot offers four goose decoys in different positions, including two upright, one sentry, and one resting. The enhanced paint scheme gives the geese a more life-like, feathered appearance and the foot and leg design is made so you do not need additional stakes or tie-downs when setting up the geese. The legs also come off if you choose not to use them.
These come in a set of a dozen and have been rated highly by consumers for their durability and performance. Each of the geese in this collection come in different positions to create a more realistic setup, while featuring a no-reflection finish to provide visibility in all conditions. The decoys come with wooden stakes for easy positioning.
Final Approach Floating Honkers Duck Decoy
For decoys in the water, the Floating Honkers have proven effective. They come in a pack of three and each decoy contains life-like anatomy and is painted to include intricate details. To help you position the geese, the heads contain a special Dura-Connect head attachment system so you may position each one differently and create a more realistic scene.
Also for those who need water decoys, the Big Foot Floaters contain the life-like appeal and quality construction that Big Foot decoys are known for. These decoys are used by three-time champion duck caller Barnie Calef and work well for hunters. Each four-pack contains different positions: resting, action, shortneck, and upright. Weighted keels keep the decoys stabilized in the water.
For those who want a decoy in the form of a flag, the Final Approach Jeff Foiles Signature Series Waterfowler Flag outperforms many other decoy flags. At 4 feet tall and 6 inches wide, the flag easily attracts the attention of geese from afar. With a large shaft, the flag is easy to hold, despite its size.
