field duck decoys

9 posts in this topic

Going to get some Field Duck Decoys. Looks like the Mallard "Shells" are the same price as the 3-D "Silhouette". Which ones would be recommended? OR -- Do I Splurge & go with the "Full Body" even though they would be a lot bulkier to handle?

I think the Green Head mallard shells are the best value on the market right now. That is what I would go with.

Do you have goose fb's? If so, you really don't need mallard decoys out there. They look cool but aren't necessary.

Like Seabass said, the best value on the market today would be the GHG Mallard shells. I'd check them out! Personally, I would go with the Fullbody Mallards.

I love the GHG mallard full bodies. They look pretty realistic out in the field with a little wind they sway side to side. Or if you have a mud flat where you hunt on the pond, throw the full bodies out on the mud.

The GHG shells are by far the best shells I've seen and used. The full bodies are around $90 for six, the shells are about $120 for a dozen, way cheaper to get the shells if you need some quantity, they stack nice and can be hauled in the Avery slotted bags.

if your getting some just to add to a field honker spread; spend the money on a robo instead. if your looking to add some for specifically hunting field ducks, the ghg feeder shells are the ticket. otherwise, for shallow water sets, the fb rester ghg mallards are killer. i just ordered a box and cant wait to put em on 5 foot poles and fool birds in potholes.

GHG shells are the best deal and they stack easier for storage then full bodies.

Thanks Guys For all the info. Of course, nothing beats the Robo, but some shells will round out the spread.

Look out Cabellas- here I come!

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing.
