painting puddles into divers????

Postby donell67 » Tue Feb 01, 2005 6:29 pm

thinking ive buying a bunch of flambeau dekes at walmart. they have a low head and are weighted keel. they are black ducks, but was gonna paint them into divers. to get some numbers out there. they are only 21 bucks a dozen on clearance. or should i just stick with getting some more high quality dekes.

I'd go ahead and leave as is,Don. At most I might put a 'bill paint scheme on 'em but the would be about it.

They would work just fine. By the time the ducks get close enough to notice them, well bang bang bang. You could buy some of GHG hotbuys, or Remingtons dekes for low prices. I forgot the GHG's but the Remingtons are 18 dollars a dozen at Bass Pro.
The group ended up with 420 birds.

yea, screw that. as far as i am concerned, flambeau decoys are about the biggest heap of garbage you could find....although i would use them though if they were the only thing i had available :laughing:

If you are looking for cheap decoy's to paint up as diver's keep your eye's open at garage sale's, or auction's. You can get them cheap! This next summer I plan on selling all my duck decoy's on a garage sale, and buying new one's. It's the only way the wife will allow another three dozen into the garage, plus since my boy is hunting with me now I am running out of room in the boat
Any day in the outdoor's is better than at work
