Top Waterfowl Decoys and Calls for This Season

Top Waterfowl Decoys and Calls for This Season

We were scouting at the end of a very long trip to North Dakota. Are those real geese or fakes in the field? It was tough to tell through the binos after a week of putting hundreds of miles on the F-150. Flocked heads have been all the rage, but more and more, we're seeing gorgeous fully-flocked decoys. The calls are becoming increasingly easy to run, too.

An industry vet recently told us, "These days, it's hard not to make a sound on a goose call that a goose doesn't make." But it still takes practice to know when and when not to reach out to a flock of late-season greenheads.


So keep practicing, and invest in some of these quality decoys. You'll put more birds on the ground.
