    I was curious if any of you NB and NS gang are familiar with the old Atlantic Decoys that I believe were made in the Amherst area many moons ago (I believe in the 80's?). They were made of molded styrofoam and came in a few species. Anyone have any info on these? Worth using?

    I haven't heard of them,but that don't mean anything?
    I tried doing a search and came up empty.
    Do you have some.
    I have a couple old foamers on my shelf,but I think they are old Herters.

    Yes. I have 2 dozen Blacks which haven't been hunted at all. They have no keel but have a weight inbedded into the bottom of the decoy. I was mistaken on where they were made. I pulled one out of the box I have them stored in and the stamp on the weight says Atlantic Decoy Sales Ltd. Sackville, NS.

    I had bought them from a friend about 10 or so years ago and he said they were very popular with hunters in NB as well as in NS so I thought I would ask. I was hoping someone had used them in the past and had some good things to say about them.
