I have bought 1/2 dozen G&H super mag. Canadas. I also bought an Ameristep blind for 90 bucks at our local walmart. My friend bought some more Flambeau convertible floaters/field decoys with converta heads. He also bought 4 Flambeau Judge decoys for 85 bucks and an Ameristep blind. I still plan to purchase a dozen more standard G&H shells and either some GHG fullbodies or Bigfoots. My brother has to buy some new duck decoys. We bought a couple dozen Remington Mallards and they suck :thumbsdown: I will never buy them again. We sold them on Ebay and got what we paid out of em and some. Then he is going to buy some snow goose fullbodies and we will be set(hopefully). I also bought him an Ameristep blind. As of now we have 1 dozen standard G&H shells, 1/2 dozen super mags., 4 Flambeau Judge decoys, 12 Flambeau Canada floater/field decoys, 2 Canada feeder butts, 250 snow and blue rags, a snow goose magnet(plan to buy about 2 more), and our 3 blinds. Hopefully we will slaughter some ducks and geese. Good Luck to All as the season is approaching fast.

So far this year I've bought a new duck boat, had all of my bigfoots custom painted, bought an extra finisher blind, another 100 windsocks, and will be picking up some new GHG fullbody honkers within the next week or two.

No new duck decoys this spring/summer I did buy some more SMag Mallards at the end of the season last fall--that is when I do my buying-when I can get steep discounts. :thumbsup:

I'll be picking up another dz used Real Geese Pros this Thursday from an acquintence and plan to buy a pair of high head lookers of Averies Full Bodies when they finally show up in the stores :thumbsdown: Ya think they would have them here 1 month ago already--goose season is 4 days away now. I did buy 20 more new Big Foot Honkers last winter too. And parts for another 100 custom S&Bs wind socks. Man I need to finish them yet...

I just came home from the Cabela's in Kansas City with 2 dozen of the GHG hotbuys, for 25 bucks a piece. Not a bad decoy for the price, but you can't short string the decoy line around the keel worth a crap. Still a good looking decoy for the price. I also bought 8 more bigfoot full bodies. You can never have too many of those.

I just bought a dozen GHG Hot Buys from Scheels the other week. They were origninally 24 bucks, but were on sale for 19.99! They look a hundred times better the the old Carry Lite decoys I have and it doesn't look like they'll be useless after only one season. I might just sell all my Carry Lites and buy GHG instead. The detail is amazing and the quality seems much better...and besides...they're waaaaay cheaper!!! :thumbsup:

2 more doz. mallard g&h magnum, but that was kinda a while ago, when they were on sale, probably get something else before the season starts, I'll end up spending every extra dollar I have to get something I don't realy need, I'm sure you know how that goes.

Anybody or everybody who has purchased or used the ghg "hot buy" dec's, what's your opinion? How do they look in real life, quality, craftmanship, etc.? I don't own any, but wondering how you owners like them, and why the heck a dozen dec's are sooooo cheap. I don't see a big difference between those & the life-size ghg dec's. Thanks, DJ
