decoy bag

Postby hobbsj » Tue Dec 27, 2011 12:58 pm

I'm looking in to getting slotted decoy bags. I've started trying my hand at carving as well being tired of repainting my scratched off plastic deeks. Any recommendations? I currently use a big mesh backpack style bag. My areas are mostly walk in from a few hundred meters to 1 mile. I also got a layout blind that packs as a backpack. So, I'm trying to figure out how to pack it all in. I bought a Rogers slotted bag for a dozen deeks, but that thing was massive and hung down to my ankles. Any recommendations are appreciated.
One thing duck hunting has taught me is that in prehistoric time, I would probably be a gatherer.

Maybe you should get a sled?

Try a game cart. I hunt walk-in spots as well, depending on distance and pathway I will backpack it or use the game cart.

Try a jet sled or get one of the backpackable decoy bags from Rogers Sporting Goods for under $20...your hips and back will thank you for it.

i got rogers new floating slotted bag ( 29.99) and its awesome doesnt hang low and very light. Carried a dozen over a mile this morning and would much rather use that bag than those big bulky regular decoy bags that catch and rip on every thing

What kind of layout blind do you have? I have a cabelas northern flight and I can fold it into a decoy bag that can hold my gun, gear bag, and around 2 dozen decoys without it being extremely heavy.

I have the northern flight mobile 1. I'll load it up with deeks and give it a try. Thanks for the idea.

Mine is waterproof so I can also float it out with decoys in it. I don't know if the mobile 1 is though. Good luck!

A game cart is not a bad idea at all...especially if you are walking in. Some friends of mine have one and we use it when the goose fields are wet because the farmer tells us not to drive in them. We can fit several slotted bags of decoys on it as well as layout blinds. Check out Avery's complete line of decoy bags as well :thumbsup:

Good luck :thumbsup:

We use out layout blinds as backpacks and put a bag apiece of decoys, our gun and gun in our layout blind. Found out if you walk leaned forward its mor comfortable
