Those full body Dakota's look good! Are those GHG pintails? Hopefully the ducks were as impressed with your spread as I am :smile:

The Pintails and the standing Mallards are Blue Collar Decoys from here in Idaho. The Sleepers are Avery/GHG.

The Ducks loved the spread, in fact I had two Pintails fly over, lock and hover over the Pintails. I shot them both as they were about to land.

I have seen and shot more Pintails this year and I can remember.

I love using full body duck decoys anytime I can!

They look awesome! I had read the name blue collar decoys before, but I didn't realize they were in Idaho. I looked up their shop and turns out it is about 2 miles from my house! I will have to check them out. I love using full bodies (I have a bunch of averys) as well and I was going to pick up the some of the full body Dakota's. Looks like they are pretty spendy, but for a local company and good quality I don't mind forking out some more dough. I have only shot a handful of pintails... Maybe your success can justify picking up a half dozen full body pintails!

I feel sorry for the field hunters today. I couldn't hardly keep 2 doz decoys snow-free on the water, much less 12 dozen.

Do you know why Cajuns don't hunt elephants? Because the decoys won't fit in their pirogues!

We didn't get limits yesterday during the snowstorm, but we had a great shoot for four guys.
Good to see the 5 inches of snow we had finally. Brought in some new birds!
I'm thinking we'll see more in the coming days.

I probably won't post the picture but yesterday I had the best day afield I've had in 20 years and certainly the best I've had in Idaho.

It was the rare occasion when hundreds of miles of scouting, hours spent behind binoculars and spotting scopes resulted in the right combination of X, wind and weather.

I shuttled 4 friends through the spot and each one left with a limit of greenheads (one sprig and 2 unintended consequence hens) and just under limits of geese. We ran out of friends that could get there before the end of shooting light!


There were a lot of “firsts” that fell yesterday. My friends 10yr old (who had already gotten his first limit of greenheads earlier this year) shot his first goose. A honker that nearly outweighed him. His brother with the broken arm was seriously jealous! My wife got her first true, unquestionable, no doubt limit of greenheads (she was the only one shooting so the pressure was on and she delivered) and her very first goose (with a 20ga I might add) It was the first time that I shot a limit of ducks and geese from the exact same spot, in the same day with the same set up with only me calling (I’m not a goose caller)

I’m not a goose hunter or caller but my friend really wanted to shoot a goose so I practiced up all summer and really got the results. He got his wish and I got to learn the basics of a new skill. Man you can get winded blowing a goose call!

Hoping you all are getting similar results because this smile won’t wear off for quite a while! I only wish I could have shared with other friends near and far that have shared their secret spots and fowling tricks with me along the way, including some folks right here on this chat board and three brothers who shall remain nameless but always part of the adventure. Next time!

Nice work. I see he's wearing gloves now. At 5 yrs old, he's already smarter than you! :clapping: Green Machine

You gonna blame that hen tucked in on the corner on him? The glare of the Avengers lunchbox get in your eye?

Hey Jack, the guy I hunt with likes to shoot one hen also. Oh, wait...nevermind. Not sure where the ducks are but at least 14 of them made a mistake. In a span of about 20 minutes....
