Making the switch from GHG...

Postby Cliner » Sat May 25, 2013 11:57 am

Well, I've been a loyal GHG guy since I started hunting geese, but these Newbold lessers are just too small for my liking. I hunt Giant Canada's in MO, so I just don't feel the Newbold's will do it for me. That being said, I do like lessers because I can get more in the truck than I can with full bodies. I loved the old-style GHG lessers and now they don't make them anymore.

Long story short, I'm looking to get a couple dozen Dakota lessers. I don't think a ton of people run these around where I live, I've never seen any used for sale. Where would yall recommend I buy Dakotas for a good price? Cabelas is way overpriced.

Thanks

Rodgers usually has the best decoy prices of the sources I know.

Rogers sporting goods for sure. But sometimes reeds sporting will have good deals also. Pressleys outdoors sells them also, so you might want to check them out as well. I've but from all places listed, and never had problems, but rogers is usually the cheapest, especially when there running their sales. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the responses. I kind of figured that Rogers would be the cheapest. Well, we'll see how they do. :biggrin:

On the painted Dakotas: Does that mean painted bodies and flocked heads or full painted including heads?

I would want to be sure that they've begun making their lessers out of the new soft material, as the paint on my speck painted hard polymer lesser bodies hasn't been the best. (Though to his credit, Bill was anxious to make it right.)

Thanks for the advice Rick. I noticed it said 2012 lessers, so I'll have to see if they switched to the new plastic. :beer:
