G&H Woodies

Postby Spencer5100 » Sun Dec 04, 2005 1:26 pm

G&H usually makes great decoys, but their woodies look terrible. I'd take flammy woodies any day over the G & H, and thats flambeau!. HAs anyone used them?

iMo, they look very unrealistic, the heads not bright enough, and the back is too light

ducks are not that smart fellas. My painted bleach jugs bring in ducks just as well as any brand of decoy.

I'm with Texan although I don't prefer to hunt over 2 liters and bleach bottles just personal preference

They dont look that great im with you, but usually i make a big fuss over dekes and camo patterns and the hunter usually cares more than the duck does.
The group ended up with 420 birds.

(='.'=) are many like him but this
(")_(")one is mine. Cut and paste the bunny into your signature to help the bunny gain world domination !

yea boys i got ya about the detail and all.... but it just seems that if they dont care that much then flammys would work fine and there wayyy cheaper and IMO look better

I agree with Spencer... If they dont care about details then buy the Flamers just because they're cheaper.

Maybe they don't make the most realistic... but I am not going to argue with the birds in the freezer - the one getting mounted and the breast filets :yes:

I've had them for 3 years and there isn't a paint chip missing!
