Also I would like to do away with my decoy trailer. I am considering selling my spread of FFDs and purchasing Real Geese Pro Series II decoys. I have read much discussion on here about these decoys vs other decoys and it seems like the general response is that the Real Geese decoys perform as well or maybe even better. Are the Pro Series II decoys as effective as FFDs. Are their any downfalls besides if the ground freezes up? Is their a need to mix full bodies in with a spread of these decoys? Do they shine? Is it worth flocking the heads and tails?
I ran nothing but a mixed RG spread this season,did not miss the bagging and all of the extra work of the full body spread at all.From mid season right into late season with frozen ground no trouble with a slide punch hammer,setup and take down a breeze compared to seasons past.
In the process of selling all of my full bodies.
