Favorite Decoys

Recommended Posts

I use dozens of GHG fullbodies, pro grades, ffd's and hunter series and have treated me/my group well. I also use GHG lifesize mallards/ringers for the duck spread with the older flambeaus thrown in. They are good looking decoys and I use slotted bags to keep em in good shape.

i like the realism and price of my ghg fullbody geese, but my FA eliminator fb geese have paint that stays on better....as far as floaters go, i just buy a dozen ghg hot buys every year and tend to put bb holes in them (hence the need to buy a dozen every year!) im not one to do much traffic hunting, i try to get where the birds are, so decoys havent been a big deal for me so far. my mojo mallard has been a hunt saver a few times, especially with the custom controller i built for it. i think the most overlooked decoy for me that i just am now starting to utilize is my ghg sleeper and rester shells. they are flat out late season killers!

I steer clear of anything Avery and run flocked Bigfoots in the field and G&H on the water for ducks. Unmatched durability, ample realism, and fair pricing.

That and I get turned off by all the "ProStaffers" Avery has thinking they're sweet running around in their dork wear!

i will agree my old G&H dekes have held up nice; just too [PoorWordUsage] heavy to carry 2 dozen magnums into the small holes i hunt. those little hot buys are just enough to convince the birds to pick my opening and not some other little pocket way back in the cattails.

I use GHG & Flambeu for my mallard and pintail decoys. For diver decoys, I love the Cabelas real image decoys. They look just outstanding and are very succesfull. One brand that I will never buy again is Carry-lite.

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
