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!

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
