LIGHT AS A FEATHER
HOW TO BUILD AN ULTRALIGHT, ULTRA-REALISTIC HONKER SPREAD
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.
