    Well being where the geese are is the first thing, but scouting is everything. If you already located them, you have the hardest part done, and the part most people will never figure out. I like to set my decoys in a large V shape with the birds landing in the open end of the V. Make sure you hide well, they are VERY gun-shy in the areas you can hunt them around here. Your probably going to need more than 2 decoys!!
