Are the GHG hot buys really hot buys or are they to good to be true at $25.00 a dozen?

They had alot of problems with paint adhesion the last 2 years. Just a cheap quality decoy in my book. I have always figured that you get what you pay for. But if on a strict budget - they are better than no decoys at all. I personally do not like the fact that they are made in Communist China where workers are paid 32 cents an hour on average.

DH16,

I bought a dozen of the GHG "Hot Buys" last year and was able to use them on the river all season here in Arkansas, and had very good hunts over them. The "Hot Buys" are a little smaller than the normal standard decoy, and because of the relaxed position have a lower profile in the water. I did have them mixed with standard dekes. This mix (I felt) added to the realism of the spread (add a swivel head or two if you can)

I hunt rivers mainly so the focus of the flights are already in my direction. I do not have to get the attention with the larger dekes on the rivers like I have to in larger waters or flooded fields and/or timber.

I did not have any trouble with the paint, no more than normal wear. My dekes have always taken the most abuse on the river hunts, so I was pleased with the outcome.

I have been hunting ducks since the late 70's for the money you can't beat the "Hot Buys" to build a spread.
