The stakes the guy gave me with them are cheap plastic that would work ok in the early season but would be impossible to get in the ground in the "hot" times of goose season (I'm talking December/January when the hunting is good). So I want to make new stakes for these decoys. So I was thinking of making them out of some old metal electric fence posts (the short kind you use with cattle) and welding a small t-brace of some kind on the end to keep the decoy from sliding on the post. The idea of using a tougher metal stake is my idea is to carry all my gear out to the field and bring a hammer or something with me so I can pound the stakes into the frozen ground. Hopefully they'll be strong enough, or I'll be strong enough to get the stakes into the ground in the winter but hopefully your guys' experience will be able to give me any ideas of better stakes or better ways to build them.
