DIY vs Kit Texas rigs cost

Postby Irish Lad » Sun Jul 28, 2013 3:51 pm

Just some info if you are thinking about the cost effectiveness of doing it yourself. This is what it cost me to rig 4 dozen decoys(with some left over stuff). I live in a small town in Utah so shipping costs hurts :sad: It was fun rigging them with my 12 year old grandson :thumbsup: As you can see it is cheaper to DIY, especially if you have more time than money.
