Default decoy poll

whats your favorite head position on full bodies. and why

1.) Feeders
2.) active
3.) Rester

i like feeders the most,to mei think it makes everything seem calmer if more are feeding.i dont have enough full bodies yet though

More feeders than the rest BUT you need a mix IMO. We have done some experimentation and a good mix of actives mixed in with the feeders and 1:8 lookers to others seems to work well for us..

I add 1 or 2 rester decoys to a doz , but I agree with Carp

But if it is COLD I will run 1 looker , 3 feeders and 8 rester's per dozen
When it is cold , geese will stay in the feild all day
Most will be sleeping

Late in the season I use this set up 2/3 of the time and knock the snot out of the geese as they don't see setup s like it from anyone else
