I Currently own the BF mallards I hate the stands. So i just took 1/4 steel rod and made my own. I am looking into buying the GHG mallards for this season.I just purchased the GHG pintail and love the way they look. Cant wait to use them in my spread this year.

do your self a favor, get the Dakota full bodies. they are much more durable IMO.

How much do those run per dozen? Do they come with a bag?

Everyone should take small peppy giant truck guys opinion for gospel because he hunted every weekend last yr. The Dakotas have NOT been out long enough to judge thier durability. If it were me I would run a bunch of deadlys for ducks if I needed to buy a field spread all over again. MOTION w/FB appearance!!!!

trust me, you'd throw your GHG's away if you used dakotas. so much more drable and the stands are better IMO. the bungge design is the way to go as you can pick them up and move them with the stands attached.

nouthing aginst GHG, infact I own a lot of GHG decoys, I just think the dakotas are that much better and ZERO paint issues out of my dakotas where as ive had many GHG's with chipped paint before coating them and the uncoated dakotas still look new.

I went with GHG over-sized mallards and pintails , basically only went with them because I had their geese fb's and wanted to keep the same stands on everything. If I could do it over I probably wouldn't spend the money on the duck decoys, not that there is any issue with them I think that they are great, its just they are not necessary to kill ducks up here .

I ordered a half dozen of the Dakota full body mallards over the weekend..can't wait to get them in hand. Have been really happy with my floaters from them. After perusing this thread, I may give the Blue Collar full body wigeons a hard look...could be deadly in a couple of my spots if the wigeon come down like last year.

I just ordered the GHG full body mallards I like everything about them and love the stands. The ground freezes solid up here by Nov and you cant drive a stake in the ground.

They will be here on Monday. :grooving:

Ive got GHG, Bigfoot, and dakotas. They all look good. GHG has the best motion system. The Bigfoot look great but as others said the stands suck. I also made some out of round rod with a hook for the bunge. They take up less space that way. The bigfoots and dakotas are a lot heavier than the ghg. So if you are walking in the GHG might be the way to go. I use all three brands and to tell you the truth I like them all.

My Dakota full body mallards arrived yesterday evening and I am very impressed with them. This is the first time I've had a chance to handle them in person and they look/feel just as tough as the floaters. I like the size of the motion bases as well...I was afraid they were going to be larger than they are. Think I'll be picking up a 4-pack of the Blue Collar wigeon full bodies to round out my spread. Then its the long wait for November to test em out.

I went with dakota and i love them. I also think GHG makes a nice looking decoys as well. Hardcore and bigfoot look awful IMO. The stands on bigfoots are enough to drive you crazy. Nothing beats flocked heads as well. :thumbsup:
