The Texas Trash Bag
▶ Cost: $2 or less per decoy
▶ You need: White kitchen trash bags, cardboard, spray paint, stakes
▶ How-to: Cut a goose head and neck silhouette out of the cardboard and spray-paint it white (optional). Tie the bag to the stake at two points like a windsock. Attach the cardboard neck and head (not shown) to the stake. Spray black wingtips on the tail end of the bag.
Bonus: Use a black garbage bag and white paint for a Canada goose decoy.
