He and his team will have arranged all your decoys for you, have your gun and will then inform you on safety, how the layout blinds work and guide you through what to expect during your day’s hunt. Cartridges will be situated in your blind so that you have enough to see you through the morning shoot. As the birds start flighting in and being shot, Kristofer and his team will pick up the geese immediately as not to scare new flocks. They will be approximately 200 metres away.
