Socks for Flocked Decoy Heads

7 posts in this topic

Do you guys just put regular tube socks over your flocked decoy heads your do they make "socks" especially for these types of decoys. Just invested in some new decoys and it seems like it would be really easy to knick the flocking off if care is not taken. Thanks to all who reply!

P.S. Hunted near Hutchinson this morning and saw 2 greenwing teal and that was it! Where are the Mallards?

I have tried regular tube socks, they protect good but leave behind little white fuzzies that are very small and tough to wipe off. I suppose black socks would be ideal, or I was thinking about try some nylons. Give it a shot, let me know what works.

Try regular socks inside out. It keeps the white fuzz to a minimum. We also use black socks. They seem to work good.

Good luck

Go to the clothing store and buy some black dress socks on clearance. That way if your in a hurry or oversleep or just running late for whatever reason, you can leave them on and they'll still look real... wink.gif

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
