Might want to break out the white paint again. You left off the racing stripe between wing and belly that really shows up on live ones. Would be easy to add.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Please follow up with some pics of geese you shot over them. I need somewhere to point people when I'm trying to argue decoys are so expensive because they're in the business of sucking buyers in, not geese

It's possible. The old flambeau molds, which were some of the first speck floaters, were just Canada molds painted like a speck. Image

Don't know about that. Ducks are pretty smart. They don't look like any duck I ever seen.
In a free society, it is not the obligation of the citizen to prove to the government that he is a good person. It is the obligation of the government to prove to the rest of the citizenry that the citizen is a bad person, with probable cause.

I'd love to even see that kind of variety.
A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of the country. The statesman wished to steer, while the politician was satisfied to drift.
