HARDCORE goose floaters?

Has anyone ever hunted over these? Do the geese like em? How do they look? Durable? Good paint? These are the the best priced floaters i can find.

I bought a 6 pack at the game fair and have not used them yet. Maybe I got a bad box but they seem pretty cheap. Some are stronger than others in the same box. One is about as durable as an empty water bottle ! One even has open holes in the tail at the seams. I hunt public water and have to get there very early to stake my claim . I usually sleep on my bags of dekes till legal deke time aand I think these will collapse !

I just picked some up last week and have hunted over them once. Didn't have any geese work the decoys so I don't know if geese like them or not. While they are fairly thin plastic, none of mine are "thin as a water bottle". I like the fact that they are thin cause it cuts down on weight and I walk in to a lot of places. Paint quality seems good based on what I saw in the store, I could see the paint holding up better than my GHGs. Overall, I am happy with them for the price

They use a different type of plastic than most. It makes it feel lighter which I could understand the "cheap" feel. They are however very durable. Call Rogers sporting goods and ask them. They sold a pile of HC last year and they will tell you they had way more paint issues with GHG and FA. You will be happy with your purchase.

Actually Primos is on the box stricly for a branding partnership. HardCore is owned by Global Manufacturing. Who produces a lot of the decoys you hunt over for different brands. Facts are a good thing.

But again if you have questions about the quality call Rogers and ask them. They are impartial as they sell all of them.

      Might not have to wear ear plugs when I mow!      That’s a spendy one.  It wasn’t hard to find one of those for $6k.  Comparatively and Ariens of the same size is $4,200.  A home owner grade JD for $3,900.  You could get into a commercial grade Z700 for maybe $8k.   I think the work I did today with mine would’ve killed that one there.

      On the south end...   This year's MN Fishing Opener weekend was not only great weather wise, the walleyes and saugers were caught in good numbers.  A main fish gut hauler working with a number of resorts commented it was one of the most productive opening weekends he has seen based on the amount of fish guts collected after the weekend. The goto presentation was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   Four Mile Bay held good walleyes in 12 - 18'.  Not a surprise as the walleye bite on the river during the spring season was good and as of late, sturgeon anglers have been reporting catching walleyes on sturgeon rigs.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 12 - 15'.  Across the south shore, 18 - 22' was holding good numbers as well.  As you can see, there are lots of fish around.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well.   As a reminder, the limit of walleyes and saugers is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One fish over 28.0 inches can be kept.  The possession limit in MN is one daily limit of fish. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers hit the lake.  10 - 15' of water was the norm.     Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River has been excellent.  The catch and release season continues through May 15th and then closes until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes were caught in 18 - 25 feet of water, a little deeper than anticipated.  Points were good as were areas with structure.  The morning and evening bite was best.       As water continues to warm, go to spots for walleyes will be neck down areas, shoreline breaks, points and bays.     The goto presentation was a jig and minnow.
