I think you answered that yourself. Why would you tell someone to wait until the end of the season to buy decoys? If you are painting
decoys right now you obviously need them for this year.
You need diver decoys? dont paint your own, wait until after this season then buy some for 50% more than you can paint them for.... yeah that makes sense.
Myself, I'll stick with the storm fronts repainted. Buying new decoys and paint I'm in them less than $35 a dozen. (less than $15 a dozen if I buy used) That seems like a much better price for when they WILL get shot. I dont want to wait for a decoy to go on sale for $50 a dozen ( $70 a doz regular priced) then beat myself up when it is split wide open by a #2 shot. I can watch a storm front repaint sink to the bottom of the river and say "oh well". Not so much with a fancy painted $50 a doz decoy.
A few cans of walmart $0.98 can of flat black, gray primer, and flat white go a LONG Way to making useable divers.
