Yes you can but there are some “ifs”:
Are you close enough to their flight line to be clearly visible?
How well can you blow a goose call?
What species of geese?
I will talk about it a little bit. First of all, Canada’s and specks are a lot easier than snows and blues. Spend your money wisely and purchase the most lifelike full body d... !
Wow this was a great read, thanks for such a nice intro post to that thought.
With all this in mind, and answering your considerations:
I am close enough to be visible to the geese flying overhead as I've seen ducks at that height turn in to my spread,
I will work my tail off to learn to honk that call knowing the weight you just argued it has,
And light geese seems cool to target cos of the conservation season, but if it's more dicey, and they're warier, I'll go for the Canada and specks.
So I'll pick up a dozen or so full body canadas and mix them into a duck spread, and wail on the honk (as good as I can) to bring em in. I'll give it a shot!
