New decoys on the market this year

Postby h2ofwlr » Tue Jul 18, 2006 3:58 pm

I noticed that Bigfoot will be coming out later this year with FB Mallards. Also GHG is out in another month with their Mallard shells. So more options to choose from when hunting field ducks this fall.

There is a company called Eberhart Decoys that has come out with full-bodied mallards & pintails, but don`t know much about them.
They`re cheap too, $99.99 a dozen. Anyone ever tried them?

I saw the BF fb's at the DU in Oshkosh. They are pretty nice. They fell like the goose decoys and held up to the key test. They are pretty big to which is nice.

Chocolatehead this is what I pulled off there home page

Eberhart's full-bodied confidence decoys are made of high density polyethylene, and come eight drakes and four hens to a dozen. They sit on half inch thin-wall (EMT) conduit stakes, which are NOT included. The price is $99.99 a dozen. Quantity discounts start at 10 dozen..

Yeah there 100 dz. put you still have to buy the conduit stakes because there NOT included.

I got some pic's of them too.

Here is the pic's of eberharts full bodies mallards and pintails. I think the pintails look better than the mallards.

Thanks for posting up GW. These are going to work great on sandbars and tidal marshes I hunt. I have conduit lying around the garage, so thats not a problem. I`m gonna try a dozen of each.
I`ll post up when I get them in hand. Don`t think I can go wrong at $99.99 a dozen for full-bodies, but we`ll see. :thumbsup:

where did you get the conduit from? I might get a dz to add to a field spread.

The thing that I like about those is that no other decoys really have that posture. They may be just what the doctor ordered to set your spread apart from all the others.

GW - you can but (EMT) thinwall conduit at any hardware store. Home Depot has it for like $1.99 for a 10' piece. Its cheap.

Sorensen - I also like the position because when ever I see a closed zone, most of them are relaxing like those deeks are. You cold also ADD them to a field spread for numbers. I should have mine in a few days!
I`m a sucker for new decoys. :help:

Got my Eberhart`s

Postby chocolatehead » Sun Oct 15, 2006 5:15 pm

Well I received my new Eberhart`s and man am I happy. I did NOT think they were going to be very good quality at $100 a dozen, but man was I wrong. Did the fingernail test and couldn`t scratch off the paint either!
Highly recommend! :thumbsup:

The new FA decoys are going to take everybody by surprise. They are some good looking decoys. The HD honkers are unbelievable, and the field mallards and floaters look just as good. When I get more info on them, I'll try to post it up.
