Get some G&H mallards. Adjustable head positions make the spread more realisitic. They last forever (we still hunt over some of my buddy's dad's decoy that are 15 years old). We have had some for 5 years that when you get the dirt off look like they did straight outta the box. The are a little expensive, but they should be some decoys that will last you your entire waterfowling career.

Oh yeah, their customer service is second to none. Dealt with them before, and they back their products 100%.

I'ld have to say go with the Widgeon. Best looking out there are the GHG. I love G&Hs-but their Widgeon stink for body shape for this species.

Flambaue makes a decent Woodie too that is reasonably priced.

My little bought a dozen of the GHG HOT BUY SERIES, theyre cool they have weighted keels and the paint is pretty good on them and they are inexspensive too. I have some of the GWT's and Widgeon decoys from GHG too and they are awesome they have weighted keels that snap on and off so you can use them as perimeter decoys and the detail on them is pretty amazing compared to some of the other brands out there. I would also say that G&H decoys are a good buy as well.

you could try getting some black ducks or coot they are dark colored and help bring birds in from a long ways off because of them being able to be seen... also if any divers do come along you can bag em'
they also work nice as confinece deks

I had to smile after some of the replies you have been getting. It has always been my opinion through many years of experience that when you buy anything, the manufacture wants to "attract" the buyer not the ducks they are hunting. Understand that the most important thing about a decoy is not its paint job when it comes in a box (I suggest you always repaint them to your location, time of year and species hunted) but how they ride in the water. Floating decoys should always be half the width they are long. So a duck decoy that is 18" long should be 9" wide. They are hard to find sometimes but don't settle for decoys that just come in a pretty box. Remember, manufactures sometimes make the box before the decoys - it should be just the opposite. My suggestion would be the new Cabela Real Image decoys. They are hard to beat in what I mention.
