Fake corn

5 posts in this topic

I just bought 6 Green-Head full-body goose dekes, there was 2 plastic corn cobs in the box. What do you guys do with them? I put 1 on a plate & my lil step-sister asked if I put butter on it & then tried to take a bite grin.gif It was great, but seriously what do you guys do with them? Thnx

Seriously? We do what YOU did. Or we try to fool the squirrels with them. Or we use them in fall table decorations. Or for Halloween stuff. Or as training dummies with out Beagles.

Nobody uses them for hunting. They make you look like a dolt and a dork. And it sends most passing ducks into hysterics laughing. wink.gif

My rule is 8 cobs per decoy smirk.gif

One evening in our goose hunting camp, after consuming several malt and hops flavered health drinks, we started talking about fake corn in the decoy spread. It was pointed out that geese don't have the depth of field in their vision to tell size. So, you could make larger corn ears just like they make super-magnum goose decoys. It was suggested that a hollow ear of corn six feet long and four feet in diameter could hide two hunters inside as a blind. But can you imagine the size of the goose decoy you would have to put beside it to make it look realistic?? grin.gif

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
