COMBINED HUNT GEESE, DUCKS, PHEASANTS & HARES
Among any other places in Europe the Danube Delta and it’s surroundings offers a large opportunity for geese and ducks hunt. Large green fields of turnips(rapeseed) and fields with corn leftovers are to be found in the vicinity of the water lagoons that border the Black Sea and the Danube Delta. We are in the geese territory where thousands of birds are flying over the fields all day long. The geese hunt is usually done from blinds in the fields or from hides situated near by the fields where the geese are coming to feed, of course using plastic decoys and callers to attract the geese. I take the liberty to give you some friendly advices for this type of very difficult hunt.
One important factor for the hunter in the blind is to keep perfectly still, no movement until the shot is called. The hunter shouldn’t be looking up at the geese. To be on the safe side, I think it’s even better when you wear a face mask. One of the golden rules is that if you can see the geese, they can see you better, so keep still and don’t move. I promise you that this simple bit of discipline in the blind will help you put more geese down. We need to set our goose decoys to deliver several messages about the flock on the ground. These messages include where the food is located in the field, where the food is not located, and where the safe spots are. Decoys obviously speak for themselves, they suggest that there is food at that goose’s location. This is important because geese typically land as close as possible to the food source.
The hunting partie will end around noon time.
The ducks hunt is organized on the swallow lakes with low water level. The hunters(2 in a boat) are acompagnied by a ranger for the hunt. The ranger will put the plastic decoys on the water, drive the engine boat, collect the birds at the end of the day hunt. The hunting party will end around noon time.
