  • During the Fall and Winter months I often notice Canada geese flying over my land to an unknown destination,they are usually fl

    During the Fall and Winter months I often notice Canada geese flying over my land to an unknown destination,they are usually flying to high to shoot and I would like to know, is there a way to call them down into shooting range?

    For sure, learn decoy set ups and calling techniques and go out and have some fun. Sooner or later they need to rest and that means finding a landing spot. Why not your land. Give them some incentive to choose your piece and not the next guy's over.

      Decoying and calling it's alot of fun until you have to pick up decoys but it is definitely worth it. The other option i suppose is to grow something in a field that the geese will stop to eat.

        I worked for Lew Childre back in the seventies and he raised geese and ducks loose in his back yard to study their coos and and other litte suttle sounds. He praticed and got to where he could make little sounds with his mouth that would call just about any water fowl. At his office in down town Foley, he used to look up and tell us " watch those geese that just flew over" then he would make litte soft low mating coos and the geese would turn around and circle us. They have good hearing and will respond to to the right call. During all the hunting I did with Lew, he never made the goose honking sound. The calling he did was all soft and low funny little coos, squeaks, and hissing, and cut funny whistles which worked very well.
