My suggestion is that you buy unflocked.
Then you can go flock yourself. :grooving:









Yes, flocked

flocked head have to work better than non flocked heads!!! less chance of shine....makes them contrast better... but you know guys used to kill geese before they had flocked heads.... for sure the most realistic geese decoys will help all other things being equal. the more pieces of the puzzle you can get together , the better your hunt will be....no one piece is a guarantee....usually for sept geese, it isn't the decoys!!! that causes problems..

Go with flocked heads. As was said earlier you can flock them yourself and while your at it, do the tails as well. Too easy! I went ahead and did all our G&H shells, big difference Good luck :thumbsup:
