The second group of factors that are independent of the actions of the hunter and leaves only hope for the right combination of circumstances. This can be attributed to weather conditions, the nature of the floor on which to feed the bird, the mood of the goose and the presence of competitors. Therefore, to ensure the most successful result of hunting, it is best to work hard on the preparation.
One of the most common methods of obtaining birds of this breed during the spring migration considered hunting with Manne or decoy geese, which is used specifically to attract their wild counterparts. This method works based on the feelings of the herd of wild animals directly. This breed of wild birds loves to join here is feeding or resting flocks of their relatives. Decoy geese is produced by the lining of the eggs of wild geese under the poultry or by trapping young that have not yet even managed to fledge the wild geese. In the role of goose can be used by the bean goose or grey goose, in rare cases, white-fronted.

This is especially true when shooting is planned in locations where the bird spends the breeding, feeding, or suits looking for the night. The wild geese prefer to arrange the feeding stations on the selected field winter or spring, for day and night time choose spit or part of floodplain meadows which are not flooded. The ambush is best organized in areas for permanent residence geese. In the case of placing the blind on the route of flight pack, to choose a place located near places of permanent days.

The hunter is to take care of my disguise and the choice of location. Any cover should look like so as not to excite suspicion of the objects of the hunt. Place the blind should not be too closed on top, but the roof is mandatory should blend with the terrain. Only under this condition the hunter that is lurking will get a chance to escape the attention of these cautious birds. If the Flyway of the pack passes through the edge of the forest on which there is a high and dense shrub or dry reeds, the construction of a pit in this case is not necessary. If necessary, you can use only certain elements of disguise. In places where the mane is completely open, you want to select items are hidden by the bushes, and in their absence to use for the blind self-dug hole, in the most inconspicuous place. While the black walls of the pit and mined land must be covered with grass from migrating geese. When hunting decoy geese on the ponds, decoys are exhibited in the shallows at the water. And the hunter can disguise himself and be shot at a distance from the lure.
