You can’t make much in the way of Xs, Vs or Cs with six decoys, so we made sure there were big enough intervals between our fake geese to make them look like a single, relaxed family group. Then we got to work hiding our blinds. We set them at an angle to the wind so that birds wouldn’t be looking right at us behind the decoys as they approached. The geese showed up on time, and I’d be lying if I said flocks piled into our tiny spread. But we were only two shooters, and the limit was two birds back then. We needed just a few geese to slip up, and they did.
