    When setting up your goose spread, it's generally a good idea to mix your decoys together rather than separating them based on type. Mixing the decoys will create a more realistic and natural-looking spread, which can help attract geese. You can scatter the decoys in a U-shaped pattern, with the full bodies placed in the center and the rest spread out from there. This will give the appearance of geese landing in the center and feeding, while others are scattered around. Remember to consider wind direction and adjust your spread accordingly for a more effective setup. Good luck with your hunt! SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence.

    Mix em. Silhouettes create movement as the angle changes when mixed, and disappear like Houdini if separate, hahaha
