Decoy bags also. Bags by Diane makes specific shell bags though I would not order from her. Her turnaround times are months! She has horrible customer service to boot.

I have 5 dozen of the Avery FFD life-size goose shells. I put 5 shells/heads in a single full-body decoy bag (a laundry bag would also work) and then put 6 of those bags into an Avery 6-slot honker bag. While it might seem like a lot of extra bagging it really is not. Especially with the FFDs, using the extra bags helps to keep them clean. Plus, I don't feel those particular decoys stack very well once you get past 5 or 6 tall anyway. I also think it helps when setting up a spread with full-bodies and/or silhouettes as I can drop bags at various points in the field and get everything mixed/spread out better. This is especially beneficial when hunting with guests who want to help with the set-up.

Six slot bags work for me.
