Goose Hunting Gear – 4 Latest Innovations

Seriously, what is wrong with the old, time-honored goose hunting gear? All the basics required are there–decoys that look very lifelike, a reliable blind, a shotgun that is properly calibrated, good ammunition, and special clothes that are water-resistant and warm to ward off the damp morning chill. Sometimes, it also includes a goose caller, but this is useless unless the hunter knows how to handle it properly. Instead of attracting the geese, it may actually put them off! To top it all, the entire equipment comes at a low cost.

The marketing specialists and the new breed of hunters would totally disagree with the above-mentioned views! They believe that new things are always improved versions of the old and therefore should replace them at the right time. And all new ideas are not bad, some are truly wonderful! So you have the “inventors” who come up with an entire range of new goose hunting gear year after year!

Actually, it is not such a bad idea after all! For the avid goose hunter, yearly additions to his/her gear will ensure that there is something to suit every occasion and every location. Since retail outlets and hunting specialty shops can burn a hole in one’s pocket, the sports hunter could buy the latest gear from online sales or auctions or swap meets conducted by hunting clubs at bargain prices as compared to the actual cost. But the web sites have to be checked out first to make certain that they are reliable. Also, is the goose hunting gear old and used, or new?

Now, what exactly are the latest innovations being offered in the name of new goose hunting gear?

(1) Generally, a pit comes in useful when putting up blinds. But sometimes the terrain is too flat, and digging a pit is not at all possible. In such situations, the Laydown blinds prove to be the best! Putting them up and getting them down is extremely easy. They are lighter in comparison to many other blinds and therefore easy to transport. In addition to their practicality, these blinds have a minimal profile and are low to the ground. Thus, they are definitely a terrific bargain!

(2) As mentioned earlier, a manual goose caller is useles unless handled properly. Well, we have electronic goose callers now! The snag is that these are not allowed everywhere–some states or hunting regions ban their use. Their hunting regulations do not consider them as legal devices to be used for hunting.

(3) Simple and made of plastic, the traditional decoys or goose replicas generally do not work after two or three days. The latest goose hunting gear includes mounted decoys. The weighted stand plus the spring and swivel attachment give the impression that the decoy is moving, or rather bobbing up and down in the wind. Smart geese that had refused to be fooled by the traditional decoys, will truly find the ‘new types’ a little puzzling!

(4) It is a common sight to see the birds stretching their wings at feeding times. So the other type of decoy offered with the new goose hunting gear, imitates this movement of the goose stretching its wings. Earlier, flags were used to feign the movement of the bird’s wing on the ground. But they did not prove very useful since the birds got used to the trick!
