A backpack designed to hold one full-size spinning wing decoy, pole, and extra six-volt rechargeable batteries, along with that cold ham sandwich, MOJO's Elite Backpack is worth a look.

Winchester Xpert Snow Goose

Winchester Xpert snow goose shotshells

A nightmare for migrating flocks of white, Winchester’s Xpert Snow Goose blends tried-and-true Xpert Steel Shot with the tight patterning Diamond Cut Wad used in Winchester’s Blind Side ammo. This marriage of shot and wad improves long-range pattern density, and the shotshell’s high velocity (up to 1,550 fps) packs more energy into each pellet. The low-visibility gray hull blends easily into empty or snow-covered fields. In 3" or 3 1/2", we can testify, this stuff simply works.

We have run one for years. Fitted with a ported end piece that allows you to spread tones over a large area and create the quick, short barks of yelping juvenile birds as well as the low-pitched clucks and moans of adult birds, this call needs to be in your arsenal.
