    I would check the DNR website for the state that you will be traveling too, then you can see how much everything will run you and limit of geese that you can take.

    The best land would be corn, winter wheat, and peanut fields. Do y'all have that up north? Usually farmers don't mind at all. If they do offer them like 20-30 bucks to hunt on thier land and they will usually very happy to let you hunt. When your scouting fileds look for droppings and feathers if you don't see geese in the field. I would also look at the goose fly pattern in your area. If you can't get field X (the field the geese are in), try to get in thier flight path. Do you have a goose call and decs?

    I think wind socks would do alright up north. Canada socks don't work down south though. The geese get wise by the time they get down here. I don't know much about socks, because they don't work down here. So I would do some research.

    Oh and if the ground gets hard pounding in 4-5 dozen stakes in the ground sucks bad.
