    well thanks to all that gave info on my last threads.
    we had a good snow goose hunt in south central IL, and the burlap painted green worked pretty good. we killed 7 birds and three were mature snows. and all the shots were between 10 and fifty yards. and with a mix of 1's BB's and T's there were no cripples and all dropped dead. Ill try to add a pic later.:big_smile:

    congrats on a good snow goose hunt , Glad to know that you guys experimented with shot size and had good luck . Is did you just use burlap , or was there more to your setup ? Would like to know for when we get some higher numbers up here and I can get to shootin again

    i like to be comfortable so we sprayed the burlab and clothespinned it to the layout blinds and put out 300 silos and 300 homemade rags and 400 shells with blinds in middle of spread. worked good if they started to look they would work.
