Homemade Canada silhouette

Postby OHIODUCKA5 » Mon Jan 06, 2014 10:46 am

I plan on making a dozen or so silhouettes this summer out of scrap plywood. Would you paint them all black or grey and black, and how much detail do I need on them. thanks

how many other goose decoys do you have? If less than 3 doz or so paint em somewhat realistic. If you have 3 doz or more go black and white and put them in the back. PM me your # and I could text you a pic of my silhouettes I made out of peg board

Here is how I made some from Coorplast. You could use them on Plywood, but as a pack in item, plywood can get heavy!

Plywood Canada decoys silos are very heavy, I have about 50 of them on 3/8 plywood and they hold up great but if you have to walk them out into a field it is a pain.

3/16th masonite. shouldn't be as heavy as 3/8th plywood.

make them out of corrigated plastic with 1/4" fiberglass stakes and you can carry dozens in silo bags without breaking a sweat or feeling like a pack mule.

I'm only making a doz so weight isn't an issue.

I have to throw this out as I learned it later. I have the Cabelas mesh bags and I got a bunch of Avalanche decoys when they made them. The aggressive feeders, or Z necks don't fit well in the bags. It scratches up the paint and bends the beaks on the coroplas. Just an FYI to make sure your decoy size fits in your bags. I have made Magnum, vs. regular decoys in silos and I can't tell a difference in the field.

Thanks Cupped :thumbsup: . I don't have a bag yet, I'm hoping that a silo bag will work. If not I can have an Amish guy make me a bag that will work.

Looks like you could fit a 4th if you moved the top one up and flipped the 3rd around.

Come on rook!
