  • Motion within the spread is vital and will help to lure the weary birds within gun range even if it's just to take a look at the motion staked decoy, flags, kites, or pull-string flappers.
  • When using flags, don't hesitate to use several, as large concentrations of snow geese tend to move quite a bit when feeding. The flags hovering just above the ground create a realism of either landing geese or geese hopping over each another.
  • Kites offer the same realism as flags, and using them at different lengths can give hovering geese the image that several flocks are wanting into the particular field.
  • Calling: The legal use of electronic callers during Spring hunts changes calling tactics for some, but many experienced hunters prefer to use a combination of electronic callers and traditional calling.
  • Staying concealed within the spread is a must. Utilize pit blinds and layout blinds, and some hunters wear white jackets with hoods and sit among the decoys.
