Making your own goldeneye dekes

Postby Get'em » Wed Nov 16, 2005 12:51 pm

i was wondering does anybody make there own dekes for goldeneyes. I have read of people using bottles and painting them black and white i was wondering though does that effect the mallards from coming in.

ToledoDecoys.com Tom is a great guy with great product and I am only 15 minutes from him, know him through some buddies of mine all his haeds are 2 part foam and unbreakable, and they look great, most all species and I'd put no other heads on my dekes
