Been thinking about the whole hunting on the refuge thing and only carrying a dozen dekes and figured I could get a dozen real nice ones. What do yall see as the number 1 deke on the market it looks and durability.

Well......as most ppl know.............I'm a GHG guy. Now.....you can go with what ya want....but here is just my opinion. Get one of Avery's 12 slot bags....chuck some mallards in and some widgeon...or pintails. A doz with a combo of this should produce a few birds in the bag. I hope you can call well.........or maybe you you won't have to call at all or very little.

Good luck.

For mallard since you'll be in public land and walking I would get some fetherflex's no point in paying over priced for g&h. they look good but my flams do just as good.
"Thomas Jefferson said I had a God-given right to pursue happiness. What makes me happy is to take a mallard's head smooth off at about 20 feet.

which decoys

Postby MicroMike » Tue Nov 15, 2005 11:45 am

I buy what's on sale, and it doesn't seem to matter.

Early in the season I use a big spread with the J hook, and later I use a small spread with grouped birds that provide a landing area.

I'm not very experienced, but I feel like I've been quite successful.
