Big enough for a weasel ball ?

Postby MassDecoyCarver » Tue Jan 22, 2013 9:32 am

Does anyone know if a AVERY GHG PRO-GRADE mallard has enough interior height to accept a weasel ball ?

I have some old Carry-Lites (standard size) and they are not tall enough.

Thanks !

I did a few hotbuys. I guess maybe you could compare the size of the hotbuys and progrades next to eachother.

its a close fit from top to bottom but it will fit. i have done it to a few of them. just be carefull when cutting . i suggest making a trap door in the back of decoy insted of cutting it in half and having a lid.

Thanks,
I should receive them today and then I can see what type of plastic they are made of. If it's the hard stuff, I'll probably add a hinge to the door so it'll work correctly.

Not that I want to re-create the whole 'motion decoy thread', and I have read quite a bit of it.....but
I was thiking that I'd try the method of attaching the ball to the trap door with a screw, thereby keeping the ball attached and the center of gravity higher up. Seems like a reasonable way to start so that I am not fiddling aorund with foam and socks, and all of the other methods.
