Low-profile layout blinds can get you only so far. Cole Fabro, a diehard goose hunter from Minnesota, tweaks his decoy spread to help him hide better. Imagine the typical U-shaped spread with a tight clump of decoys at the bottom of the U and the opening of the U facing downwind. Most hunters set their blinds so that they are hiding in the bottom of the U and the geese are finishing in front of them, flying head-on into the wind. Fabro moves his blinds off-center (sliding up one of the arms on the U), so that when the geese finish, they’re not looking toward the blinds. Instead, they’re offering up a broadside crossing shot as they set down in the kill hole at the bottom of the U.
