Sillosock decoys

Has anybody used these? I'm thinking about buying a dozen or two and giving them a try.

I have used them and I personally think they are a great decoy. We have a few in our snow goose aresenal!

My friend owns several hundreds of sillosock decoys and I've used them in our hunts the past couple years. High winds to little wind, these work well. I give them a thumbs up. The only downside of these is they will collect water on a rainy day and you need to drain them or they don't work very well.

I really like the way they look in the spread. LOTS of movement

Thanks. I'm probably going to add them to our snow spread this year.

I know a couple of guys that swear by them. I guess the key to them is the fact that they look the same with 20+ mph winds down to 0mph winds. Unlike the regular wind socks that can mess up a hunt with little wind, these help!

Our crew goes to Saskatchewan every other year. We started way back in the day with Texas rags. We would all wear white and lay in the spread. We now have been useing sillos for two years with layout blinds AND an e-caller we made and absolutely smoke the snows. What a gas. I don't use photo bucket, but if someone wants I can pm them pictures of the last years hunt with the sillo's showing in the background. I am not affiliated, just believe in the product. BC

We go to Manitoba every year and need to upgrade the snow spread. So far, I haven't hear anything negative about Sillos. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to haul, which make them even more attractive.

For a sock they are a tad spendy, but sounds like if you want to shoot some birds it is the way to go!

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
