Bigfoot Full Bodies

Postby freemus43 » Tue Jul 30, 2013 5:08 pm

What is the difference between the B2 and the non B2's?

Yeah,
But that all that good advise goes out the window if they are actually the same size.

I think the breast is greyish brown on the B2, and brownish gray on the other one.

B2's are made in China. Smaller than original big foots. I like the originals better. Think they are a better decoy.

The B-2s don't seem to be quite as durable as the originals but still seem to be more durable than the Avery/GHGs.

Cabelas exclusive that's 15% smaller than the originals. Originals are great decoys IMO.

Most posts are accurate. Two types of models for BigFoot. The Original and the B-2s. B-2s can be a decent decoy for the price if you can get them at $119 a six pack at Cabelas.

I agree with KK......... Their regular price of $179/6 is way too much for the B-2s $119-$129 more reflects their value. I have never paid over $119/6 because Cabelas seems to have them on sale every other week during the hunting season......

I was at Cabela's last week. Yes, I saw that B2s are from China. I take it that Original Big Foots are still US made?

I dislike Big Foots, but we bought almost 5doz of them for $600 along with a doz shells, 13 floaters, and 2doz ducks. Bought them to flip.

All of them are originals, and they still look pretty dang good for some of them having dates on them from 1985 and 1990. :eek:

$600 is a decent price for all those. Bigfoots hold up and there's no doubt about it. Easily find Bigfoots brand new and shipped for $330-$340 a dozen.

How do you carry 'em? I just got those six today :grooving:. Also got Cabela's six slot Northern Flight bag; they don't fit in it. Is there any six slot bag out there that can carry 'em?

I don't bag them. Waste of money. The paint will hold. I screw the feet to the legs and the legs to the body. Stick your arms through the legs and you should be able to fit three to four per arm.

no motion, and they're simply just too big. I cant haul near as many decoys in the same amount of space. and I dont have a trailer so I cant always get a hold of one to use. and then some places I cant even get a trailer into.

As for carrying them. The back of the feet have a strap across them I will grab them foot to foot by that strap and a third with my thumb. One more tucked under the arm and two in the other hand That makes 6.........

While the Bigfoots take up more room, settup is also faster because you don't have to mess with bases. Grab and go I can easily set up 4 dozen in 20 minutes to 1/2 hr. And take down and load in about 20 minutes
