Has anyone seen the new GHG goose full bodies w/the flocked heads, in person? Thinking about buying some soon just want some opinions.

yea i have they have them at the gander mt near me i wasn't that impressed with the paint. i mean in the pics on there site and at macks or cabelas they look great but they had them on display and it looked like the paint was wearing off and was very easy to chip off. the flocked heads are very nice they add great realism to the decoy. the bases seem to be a little bit unstable compared to bigfoots or hc's but they offer a stuble strap that well help keep them up. but it ur looking for some quailty go with the big foots.

The GHG snows are horrible--they look yellow instead of white :thumbsdown:

And I am with ya on the paint QK. They have had so many paint issues over the last few years--I plain do not trust them at all.

They have snows out allready? I frequent their site on a daily basis for about a year, and I havn't saw any pictures of the snows. Any more info on where I could see a pic of them? Thanks.

Oh yah. I think GHG is a great company. I know lots of people don't like them, but when I get my FB's I'm going with GHG.

the snow shells looked bad IMHO. They were out last year.
And the FB snows will probably show up in mid fall...

To each his own I guess....

Thats true H2o. Hunting would be a whole lot less fun if every guy used the same exact decoys, blinds, calls, flag, ect. Kinda like chevy, ford, dodge, nissan, ect. As long as it brings the geese in, or in the veichles situation, from point A to point B.

well the paint on my floaters and shells are chipping one real bad after four days of hunting so far this year my sugguestion is bigfoot I gave one a paint test the other day at gander mountain (my four year old son and my keys) after five mins and a stern look from the store manager it passed the test with flying colors. I am starting over with them.

Same ol same ol....

I ordered some GHG flocked BF repalcement heads thru Cabelas 2.5 weeks ago and they said they were back ordered until Sept 16th, I just called, now it is Oct 15th before they expect to get them from GHG :thumbsdown: I do not know how many times I have heard of promise dates being broken over the last few years by GHG , but at least they are consistent..... :umm:

I dont know how many of you purchased these decoys last year like myself but after speaking with the one of the reps I was advised that GHG had a major paint problem last year and they have taken the proper steps to fix the problem. I have purchased 4 dozen of this years model Canada Full bodies and I am impressed except for the feet . Guess you gotta sacrifice a little for a lot. They are the most realistic decoy on the market except for maybe the hardcores.

Is anyone from the west coast that hunted the early season oregon hunt? If so how did you do?
