RedHead decoys

Anybody here used them? They look nice and are cheaper than most decoys. There on the Bass Pro Shop website. Does anybody know if they're any good?

No, don't even think about buying them!! Buy something else or you WILL be sorry.

There is nothing better than hunting with friends and then crackin' a couple of cold ones afterwards.

Why? I am just curious. I wouldn't think about buying them just wondering though :hammer:

The plastic gets very weak & brittle in the cold & the paint scheme is way off IMO. Your better off scouting the web for sales on anything other than Redhead goose decoys

I bought four a couple years ago. They are OK. The keels are removable so they can work as filler decoys in a field spread. I run them sometimes when I only need a few decoys for a long walk in. Much lighter than Dakotas but they are smaller also. Basically you get what you pay for.

If I'm correct they are around $100 for 4? Not sure if you want floaters or fullbodys, but for that money you could buy Higdon floaters; which are much better paint wise and cost the same.

I think I will pass on these and just wait for Big Foots to go on sale at Cabelas. Thanks for the replies
