How big?

Postby IowaWaterfowler10 » Thu Feb 07, 2013 10:20 pm

How big of a trailer would I need for 4 twelve slot duck floater bags and 5 Avery mid sized goose decoys bags. Along with 3 layouts?

Thanks, Iowa

About twice as big as you think you need! From experience, I went from a 5x8 in the 80's, to a single axle 6x10 in the 90's and early 00's, to our present 6 x 12 dual axle and we already need more room for our Canada Trip. Trust me, get as large as you think your vehicle and pocketbook will handle.....you'll fill it up.

Boy do I agree with tenfingergrip....you will find things you will need as you start to "refine" your hunting rig. I think still having a V-Nose trailer helps with long haul travel and fuel mileage.

And as far as storing bags go how do you prefer to store them? If only I wasn't such a decoy whore. Plan on having 4 dozen fullbody goose decoys, two dozen silos, 4 dozen duck floaters, two dozen goose floaters, and two dozen fullbody ducks by next year. Already have the duck floaters. Can that all fit in say a homemade 6x10 ?
Thanks,
Iowa

I started with a 6x14 and thought I could never fill it up. 3 short years later, I have a brand new 7x17 in the garage.
