Canada Floaters

Postby cawaterfowlslayer » Sun Jul 08, 2012 2:04 pm

Hey guys just wanted some imput on which canada floaters every one thinks are best to add to a duck spread. I was looking at the GHG harvester pack, and possibly the G&H canada floaters six pack. I looked at some big foot but only found active styles and I think I want a more relaxed looking spread. Also I think that The dakota dekes look pretty nice.

I saw this 6 pack of HC sleepers on rogers, but I've heard some of the HC floaters can have kind of sketchy paint. I've never owned any HC's but that's what I've read. I don't think you'll be able to find 6 floaters for much cheaper unless you can hold out for a Craigslist deal or something like that.

Ya on cabelas the harvester pack is 189.99 and the G&H is 149.99, the price doesn’t bother me that badly is just that I want the right number of decoys to add to a duck spread and the right head/body positions to look natural and to get the most birds possible

I have a couple packs of the GHG and love them. Super durable and well made. I wouldn't recommend them for anyone carrying in though. They are great for use out of a boat or any other mode of transportation but are way too heavy to be carrying into the marsh.

I use 8 BigFoots in my spread for geese and usually 3 of them in a duck spread. I love them. Extremely durable and the paint looks great and doesn't chip.

Whe I use all 8, just the 4 standard head positions in the pack. When I run just 2 or 3 for confidence decoys, I use one sentry and one resting head. I don't think it would really matter. But come to think of it, in the later season, you actually might want to throw out a couple sleepers. We used 3 sleepers for ducks and they worked great.

The best duck decoys I own are my goose decoys. I run small spreads and often only use 4-7 goose floaters and a couple of duck decoys on the side. The ducks almost always land in with the goose decoys. Buy Big Foots are made in the USA and are great decoys.

I try not to buy decoys made in China. When the best goose decoy made is made in the USA it should be a no brainer.
