Painting goldeneye decoys

Postby erp10 » Wed Jul 11, 2012 9:59 am

I have never diver hunted before and thought I would give it a shot because I have saw some divers while hunting last year. My dumb *** painted Barrows goldeneye decoys and I live in PA. Will the common goldeneyes care if they are Barrows or should I just suck it up and repaint them :help:

You should do just fine..but if it bothers you..repaint the heads black or a dark green.
Oh, and don't forget the white dot below the eye... :thumbsup:

You need to start all over :yes: Seriously, they wont care and even if they did it would be too late by the time they could tell the difference.
When I die I hope its in a duck blind, that, or shot in the back climbing out of a jealous mans bedroom window.
