No doubt they will hunt. IMO I would bring the brown down a little more. Might be the camera, but there is a weird yellow tint to the bottom of the body. Head and chin strap turned out really well.

I have some of those exact decoys... PIECES OF CRAP. They rock side to side all day long if there is the slightest breeze or chop on the water. Not realistic at all. Most decoys rock to the side and ride the waves/ripple, these just sit there and shake back and forth like a beer bottle in the water. I havent hunted with them in years. I'm going to cut them up and make field shells out of them, they look terrible in the water.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!
