i have hunted over them before. not my favorite but i really don't have anything bad to say. i had ducks come in to land to them till we droped the ducks :yes: . the only good thing about them is that if it is breezy they have real good movement.

I don't have any personal experience with them. But the words "shotgun" and "balloon" don't seem to go together that well.

I was kind of looking at some too just wasn't sure thought maybe I'd get a dozen to keep behind the seat of my truck for those oportune moments :thumbsup: ,but I havn't got them yet so If they are total junk let me know to.

I was also wondering how well they could take a pellet. Lets face it, how many people have decoys that don't have at least a pellet in them? That would suck to have someone just galze your decoys and have them deflate like a balloon.

that is exactly what would happen. these deks are not ment to be shot. imo they are so you can carry light. like duck player said "behind the seat".

I bought 12 to carry in on a BWCA duck hunt in Northern MN. They look ridiculous up close, but pretty good from 20 feet away. They were good enough to fool the uneducated mallards up here in border country.

I've included a few of the teal I bought a couple years back in most of my spreads this past season and I feel they've done well. Like HAD said they add some great movement to the spread. I think 3 of the 6 still hold air so I can't say they take the stray #2's quite like my burlaps but they hold up well to falling ducks :mrgreen:

I've been thinkin about gettin a dozen of them to carry in to the timber with me. If you guys have had sucess with them then I'll give em a try. I know they sure would lighten my load some. :salude:
