Goose hunting with profiles
Goose hunting with profiles has been unfairly neglected by hunters lately. But this is a rather interesting way to hunt a bird, which only at first glance seems difficult.
The most convenient time for hunting geese is spring, when birds migrate from wintering sites. The goose is a gregarious animal, they move in groups and stick to each other. Usually for days and nights, geese choose floodplains and floodplains of rivers, where they settle on Islands that are not flooded with meltwater. As a rule, near such Islands, thickets are always formed, in which the hunter can hide and wait for a convenient opportunity to shoot. But when there are no such bushes, or they are in an inconvenient position, you can lure the bird to a more convenient place. This is just an opportunity to arrange a goose hunt with profiles.
In order for the hunt to succeed, you need to choose the right place – it must be removed from the main flock’s daily routine so that all the birds are not scared away by shots. Geese are very cautious birds, and if they sense danger, they will not return to even their home and feed place. And at the same time, the place for hunting should not be too far from the pack-otherwise the probability that a single goose will buy into your pack will be minimal.
Then you need to arrange a comfortable sit-down. A goose will not fly to the pack if it sees a foreign body, in this case, a hunter. Zasidka for hunting a goose with profiles is performed in the standard manner – this is a truncated hut made of improvised branches and grass, in which space is left for a gun and Windows are made for observing the flock. You can buy a sit-down in the store – now for hunters, convenient shelters are offered, which will be warm and dry even in bad weather. The advantage of such a sit-in is that you can hunt together in it-if you choose a suitable size shelter. But in this case, before hunting, it should be left for a day in the open air, so that it loses the smell of synthetics, which can scare off the goose.
When the place is selected, the sit-down is arranged, you can start creating an artificial flock – this is what the whole goose hunting with profiles consists of. Now you can buy models and profiles of geese and ducks in the store if you don’t want to spend time creating them. But we must remember that the profiles must be at least 20 and they must be as naturalized as possible, that is, have plumage and be “goose” shape. Then you need to land the pack ,and take shelter in the shelter itself. Around the profiles, you can scatter bait-grain or bread. And wait for the goose to arrive to meet a new flock.
