GHG fullbody ducks are nice they move with barely a breeze, Hardcores are nice, Flambeau makes their enticers but you'll get no motion there or you can get shells or you can cut off keels and used floaters like that all depends what you wanna spend

Remember that often the higher end FBs they are bagging them in 6 slot bags or similar as the finsh is not holding up too well otherwise.

There are shells like G&H makes.

And Silos like Real Geese, Outlaw and others make too

It should real interesting next year for duck decoys, as Big Foot will be coming out with their duck decoys. If they are anything like their FBs goose, or Goose floaters, they will be simply awsome.

Personally I like the G&H shells, very durable and compact too. FBs are nice, but bulky too.

Also at times you can be a double winner, as many use Goose decoys and duck decoys in conjunction, so oppurtunities for both in the field. :thumbsup:

Ducks will decoy into geese. I just throw up a mojo when I see ducks, and they come into just fine. Bigfoots are by far the best overall for looks and DURABILITY

Speaking of Bigfoots, they are coming out with a duck decoy line this coming year. :yes: I'm not sure if any will be field decoys though. But if their ducks floaters are anything like their CA goose floaters are, oh my... durabilty and great looks. :yes:

if we threw out only floater decoys in a corn field would it still work?
we might try a late season hunt in a corn field near some rivers, going scouting tomorrow, just wondering if only floaters and a couple roboducks works

it will work, but not near as well as floating decoys dont have feeder heads.

I heard that Big Foot will indeed be making Full Body Mallards for '06. Should possibly have pics available at the Shot Show next month.

Hey I hear bigfoot is coming out with some new duck dekes for next years :getdown: Just in case any one didn't know :toofunny:

In the fields don't mess with your ducks. Put out your goose spread and use the goose call. You might be suprised. Of course robos help in the field too. I like to use them with a remote to turn them off when the geese start to fly. Also flag the ducks just like you do geese :thumbsup:

First time by here. Awsome site guys :salude:
It's gonna get ugly!!!
