LIGHT AS A FEATHER

HOW TO BUILD AN ULTRALIGHT, UL­TRA-RE­AL­IS­TIC HONKER SPREAD

Outdoor Life - - WATERFOWL INSIDER - BY ALEX ROBIN­SON

WATCH­ING A FLOCK of Canada geese maple-leaf down into a mas­sive spread of de­coys while a dozen gun­ners wait for the “Take ’em!” call is some­thing every wa­ter­fowler should ex­pe­ri­ence. But a lot of us don’t have the space or bud­get for a huge spread of full-bod­ies. And, it can be tough or­ga­niz­ing the pla­toon of hun­ters re­quired to set such a spread. Thanks to new de­coy de­signs, a solo goose hunter now has a real op­por­tu­nity to set a re­al­is­tic goose spread of four or five dozen light­weight de­coys that fits into the bed of a sin­gle pickup truck. Fol­low­ing are four types that will get the job done. Mix and match them to fit your needs, and leave the trailer at home.
