For those of you without a decoy trailer....

Postby shootable Goose » Thu Sep 27, 2012 8:44 pm

How do you securely bring your decoys back and forth? I don't have a trailer, just a truck. I have a few dozen full body's in bags some shells, and 6 Bigfoots with no bag. I'm looking to get more decoys but not sure I have room. Last weekend I had a Bigfoot come detached from the feet and the body flew out onto the highway, and is now trashed, living a Lonley life on the side of a an interstate. What I've been doing is stacking the bags on a xl jetsled, then tying it all down. I might try not using the jetsled, and just throw the bags into the bed of the truck, trying to keep everything as low profile as possible so nothing flies out.
Any and all advice will be appreciated. Thanks

Those work.

I have D rings on the rail of my box. I just run tarp straps across and sometimes criss cross. This allows me to access whatever part of the box I want without having to remove the whole net.

I used that exact cargo net. Worked great! I know have a cap on a 8 foot bed and it fits 70 BFs, one layout, and two dozen shells for goose season. But, the cargo net is what we used for years. The plastic hooks do tend to break in the cold.

This is WELL worth the 25 bucks I spent on it to use for hauling our family's fishing gear to and from Ontario. You may want to strap some things down to prevent shuffling of loose items underneath the netting, but the netting definitely does its job!

I have just used a cap for my truck you can find them for around $100. I think theyre a good investment because you can bring almost twice as many decoys to the feild and not worry about them flying out.

I use Avery decoy bags and a spider web bungy thing. Works great!

I just bought a really nice fiberglass topper in August for $150.00. It is getting ready to make it's second trip to ND. Really handy for hauling dogs and decoys.
