Default Canada Decoy for Snow Goose?

We have been invited on a Snow Goose hunt...flooded rice fields in the Sacramento Valley in Northern California.

We are testing out a new decoy, and I have limited experience hunting Snows.

I was wondering if anyone ever had any luck using a Flying type Canada Goose Decoy with Snow Geese?

Best of Luck,
Jeff

The more decoys you have, the better. snows dont care at all what kind of decoys they are. we always take 3 or 4 boxes of 200 white trash bags and just tie em to corn stalks.

Thanks, Goose Caller, I had heard that rumor about Snows being pretty easy to decoy, but I wanted to hear it from someone with experience.

We'll be hunting over a pretty good spread of ground decoys, so we're hoping for a good day

Best of Luck
Jeff

I wouldn't say easy to decoy. There are days were it seams you could do no wrong and others make you want to give up. Your canada decoys certainly wont hurt you at all.

What's the name of these new decoys or is it a secret?

Easy to decoy? That's the first I heard that phrase and snow geese in the same sentence. Whatever you do take A LOT of decoys. Around here people don't go with less than 500 but will typically put out 800.
