Ok, I'll try and make this short.
IMO ever since GHG decoys hit the market, other companies have upgraded there decoys with more realistic paint. ex. carrylite, flamb... to just name a few. I know GHG isn't the only decoy out there, but it's the only decoy I perfer. I still throw out my Flamie mags, and I shoot ducks over em. I have nothing agenst Flam, I just think there new decoys look constipated. I too agree that some of flamies old deeks where good deeks, as my buddie owns about 200 of the older ones. I think they look fine. It's just that I think GHG has stepped up to the plate and made the most realistic decoy on the market, now weather GHG decoys will shoot more ducks than G&H or Flamies I don't know... I highly doubt it. It's just the satisfaction that i get that when using ghg decoys. I can look out in my spread and honestly say that my decoys look VERY lifelike. G&H makes some AWSOME decoys, and from what I hear they hold up alot better than any decoy. Now the only G&H decoys I've ever hunted over are some G&H floaters.. I was impressed with the way they looked. My budget just wont allow me to go out and buy 4 doz G&H decoys. I wish I could, I just can't. Therefor I bought GHG. The only paint problem I've had with my decoys is a hen wdgn has about a 1" by 1" patch missing off her cheek. All my other decoys have small scratches but nothing you would notice from 5 yards away.. And if a duck is 5 yards away from one of me decoys, he won't be able to see them anyway, cuse he'd be feet
up and not movin.
I'm sorry if I caused any conflict, as that was not my intention. I respect your opinions and maybe one day if I strike it rich I can buy a doz or 2 G&H's and try em out. I will also promise to NEVER bring up GHG decoys agian unless someone asks my opinion on them.
Your an awsome guy ks_waterfowler... And I hope I didn't offend you too much..
Well this isn't short after all.. lol...
Aim for their lips...
