I have debated this with fellow hunters .The results are mixed it depends on the day if it is overcast or snowing the super mag are better to be seen . If the geese are looking for numbers for safty then a larger number of standards is better. Darnd if you do darnd if you don't . I use a spread of full body and shells in the mag size .

I think that the bigger dekes are easier seen and make the flock look larger to the incoming geese with less dekes due to taking up more space.

I think the spread looks the best with some of all types, supper mags, mags, full body, and silhouettes. The flag also workes very well.

i must agree that it boils down to conditions, in clear conditions regualer size are fine but in poor conditions magnums are the best bet.

I agree but I have also found that the ground your huntin makes a big difference ie corn stalks vs a wheat stuble the mags are great in the stalks but look out of place in the wheat!!
