avian x mallards

Postby spoonysmaker » Thu Oct 10, 2013 10:07 pm

Sold my Dakota decoys and picked up some avian x. Couldn't be happier. They nailed the colors on the hens imo. Anyone have any experience as far add how they good up I'm the field. I'm expecting they will hold up great in all aspects.

Nothing. They were great looking decoys. Only thing in my opinion is that the hens are a bit light in color. They looked and worked great just think the avians look a little better. Especially the hens. They did have a bit more flaking in the paint then I thought they would and the flocked heads were only used half the season and the paint was coming off of a couple bills and the color faded a bit.

Btw I heard you guys got engaged. Congrats. :beer:

Did you but the backwater series by chance? i just recieved mine and they look great. Even made stakes for them so I can use them as full body feeders as well. I'm sure they will work great. :grooving:

How are your decoys holding up. I am just starting to look at some flocked decoys.
