Interesting....I will try to help you out with the assumption you weren't trying to be a prick.
From what I have read the Dakotas paint holds up pretty good and shouldn't need a clear coating, but I have also read where guys went ahead an cleared them anyways. I haven't seen anyone having an issue with them after they clear them. But I will say again, do not get that clear on the flocking, it will mess it up without a doubt. Assuming you bought these for regular price, I don't understand why you would spend that much on decoys if you planned on having to clear coat them.
There is a thread in here somewhere that has someone saying they cleared their dakotas, might try scanning through a few to find it and ask them...I think it was a thread about GHG's.
