Sport Plast makes some but they are way too expensive for my taste... You could either repaint old decoys or make your own out of foam, it is not very difficult and is a great off season project.

Not a fan as I had bad issues with paint, but GHG makes all drakes.

You can also repaint some teal deeks, They work.

I've designed a hen for tanglefree, but not sure when they will be in production. I use way more hens than drakes for buffies and at this point, I either make custom foamers or use teal for the hens. Koonce, I had a couple of the new tanglefree drakes left, so will be sending two of those to you along with some teal converted to buffie hens.

Save you a little $... Get you a dozen or 2 of some old flambeau mallards and paint yourself. Super easy, and works nicely. Shot my first over my own painted decs in January. Happy hunting in SE Tn too. Im in NW ga in Calhoun.

Considering how many Buffies we shoot every year, I wouldn't get too caught up on having hens. I run 2 doz. GHG, all drakes, and they seem to decoy just fine, and you get the added visibility of the white. In fact, they decoy to the 21ft tender without decoys, lol!

It's good to have diversity in your spread, there are always hens in a real flock of buffies.

I run about 10 bufflehead drakes and about 8 canvasback drakes with 10 redhead drakes mixed in. All drakes. All divers will land in them.

Even tho I have some, I don't use the hens. Buffleheads decoy just fine to the drakes.
Last night, I dreamed that I killed all the saggers, all the swaggers, and all of their duckface girlfriends...

It was called: The Yolocaust.
