good decoy bag

Postby IowaWaterfowler10 » Sat Jan 04, 2014 10:27 pm

I am looking for a solid 6 or 12 slot bag. Which do you prefer the 6 or 12? Also what brand? Looking at the Final Approach stand alone 6 slot from dunns for 19 bucks a piece. Thanks guys

Roger's bags IMO cheap and very well made.

depends on the decoys you're looking to bag too. I wouldnt bag anything but full bodies and Dakota floaters. Anything else is best Texas rigged and thrown in the truck, boat, decoy sled on the lines. IMO

cant blame you for wanting to bag those, even if they dont need it. my little brother's avians are tanks! but I would wait for the Roger's bags to come in stock if you can wait, as seasons are winding down if not already done. But if you have to have them now I would say get the cheapest bag you can. I prefer 12 slot bags as you have to carry 1/2 the bags and can move twice the decoys in half the time.

Yeah I just get greedy and like to buy all my things at once. Would you buy the ones with draw string tops or does it matter?

I have draw strings for my full body ducks,I'd rather have just an open top for floaters. faster/ easier to get out and usually have a weight pocket in the bag VS. the draw string tops dont. so the open top bag would offer more protection keeping the weight from banging around on the decoys.

I understand that those are custom made bags and look to be of great quality, but $80 for 12 slot bag is a bit too much IMO :eek:

If you're looking at the Rogers 6 slot bags, the Avians are a very tight fit. I put other decoys with removable bases that are extra fillers in the ones I ordered for the avians. All 12 dozen fully flocked avians are bagged and then put in rig em right bags and trailered. If you are deadset on Rogers, I would try their bigfoot bags first. The rig em right bags have held up very well for me.

Do you make your decoys out of concrete? :huh:
Do you leave the bags out in the boat all the time or something? I can't imagine why they would do that. I'm kinda pissed that my Averys are falling apart after 10 years! and you got one!?!

Go back up to that link I put for the company "canvasback"..and see...I bet you'd get a good long run out of those

I have the FA 6 slot bags and love them. Why? They have a sealed bottom to the pockets so weights that get loose don't slip and catch under the edges of the pocket seperators. I make my own foamers so everything is single slotted to keep the looking sharp. I just bought them this year so I can't tell you how they will stand up. So far they have been great. Then again, I don't beat me equipment and decoys up so they should last me a very long time.

I dont even know how that happens/ is possible unless you drag them behind your truck.

I've got Avery, Roger's, and Hardcore full body and slotted floater bags and every single one of them looks like new minus the mud and blood. And I'm not too easy on my bags they get thrown in the trucks, unloaded on concrete, unloaded in the fields, then once the decoys are out they get rolled and smashed up into each other and stuffed away.
