Imho: Flambeau. Nice looking, made in USA, 1/2 doz. @ $29.99 @ Cabela's. Might try to buy some tonight @ Gander Mnt. if they have 'em. Btw I looked in Cabela's; saw no oversized bluebills by GHG. Wonder if GHG make bluebills in that size?

GHG didnt make the OS Bills this year. They just have teh reg. size. imo G&H is the best decoy on the market if u can afford it.

Use Flambeau standard water keels, but I hunt fairly small water for divers. Numbers seem more important since you can see them from basically anywhere.

At Auto Life Outdoors.com they have the GHG oversize bluebills but it doesn't tell you the size.

Autolife also says they have the OS REdheads, CAns GEs, Bills and Duck butt feeders. But if you checked the Avery/GHG Message Boards they aren't producing them till next year or years after that. www.Averyoutdoors.com

GREEN HEAD GEAR IS THE ONLY DECOY. THEY LOOK JUST LIKE THE REAL THING AND THEY MAY EVEN TASTE BETTER. HAVE FUN!!

I hunt with the ghg's and I love them. They get banged around alot as i hunt some pretty rough water. For the past 4 years they have held up terrific. I store them on board in my plastic trash barrels which can hold about 15 dekes each. They are stable very stable and with the moving heads they look natural. If you cannot find new ones look for the used ones. I hve been fortunate to find some on internet that were in excellent shape. :thumbsup:
