Decoy upgrade

Recommended Posts

tealitup

For many years I could only afford the cheapest decoys - which worked. But, I finally upgraded my goose floaters.  Can you see the difference? 

 

Gnh used 6 years with paining touch ups verses avian x.

I like them!!! I added some additional floaters this year. Haven't had much chance to put them to use yet. But it's coming

They look nice but there's nothing wrong with cheap decoys!  You should paint your old ones straight up black and white.  The geese can see them from way further away.

        I'm fairly new to goose hunting (I'm a bow hunter) and I hunt with a few guys that are equally as new.  We all live and hunt in the north east metro about an hour from Minneapolis.  Being new to the sport, our goose calling needs some work.  Does anyone know of someone that gives goose calling lessons?  The lessons don't need to be in the northeast metro, we can travel.

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      Hello all!!!
      After several years of separation and division it looks like it's time to build our forum back up from the ashes. Those of you who have been here before, thanks for coming back. Those who are new, thanks for stopping bye. 
      I figured a good place to start is a decoy thread. Let's make this thread the "new decoy thread" for the 2016/2017 season. It doesn't need to be a decoy that you made. If it is, fantastic!!! Feel free to share anything you made here. We will be happy to share in your success. If you have any decoy questions feel free to ask. 
      If you purchased a decoy that you are excited about, let us share in your excitement. I really enjoy seeing other people's decoys and seeing what other people are buying and using helps me to get ideas on what to make in the future. Please share, like I said, this isn't an exclusive thread for decoy makers, this is a thread for all of us. Custom made, one of a kind, or store bought, let's see what you've got. 

      admittedly, not a spearing decoy, I have several in progress, but nothing ready for pictures yet. But a decoy thread needs a decoy picture to start. I will have some spearing decoys in a few days. Stay tuned.

           Decent first three weekends of the waterfowl season in central MN. Been water hunting only so far, on permanent water. Ducks are dispersed with all the temporary flood water around from all the rain. Crops are slowly coming out, will probably be behind schedule due to wet conditions. We have harvested mallards, wood ducks, BWT, GWT, shovelers, pintails, redheads, ringnecks, ruddy ducks,and Canada geese so far. Locals the first two weekends, but the cold front last week move a lot of local ducks out and a few new birds moved in out of ND and Canada. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I am buying new decoys this year and am selling decoys that I am replacing. Most have string/no tangle line and strap weights. 

      8 drake/male mallards
      7 hen/female mallards
      3 drake/male pintail
      3 hen/female pintail 
      4 blue bill

      Make me a reasonable offer. Dog not included
       
      if if you are a young hunter who needs some decoys to get started get a hold of me. It might just cost you some gas to pick them up.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?
    • Bigfatbert
      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..
