Postby Joshfish » Thu Feb 06, 2014 1:53 pm

new to duck hunting. looking at buying some used decoys. just trying to get an idea if its a good deal. honkers-7 full body flyers, 13 full body floaters 12 747 shells, 36 regular shells and 24 outlaw silhouettes. snows-24 shells, 6 747 shells.specks-13 shells. 4 full body field mallards, 36 mallard floaters, 12 pintail, 12 wigeon and 12 teal. 2 wind mojos and a battery mojo. a decoy cart and duck plucker. i would rate the decoys 6/10. i can get all of this for $400. what do you guys think?

If they are a decent brand. Buy them up and resell the crap you dont want. Might be able to make your money back and keep the decoys you want. I do it all the time. Buying bulk always seems to be the way :thumbsup:

If my arithmetic is correct, you are going to get 214 decoys for $400 (not including the cart and plucker)
That equals $1.86 each

pretty much regardless of the condition,..that's one heck of a deal.
