    The key , IMO, is they are bigger and darker and around here that means drawing power for distant flocks.

    B&Ws with a touch of gray. Nothing really new here.

    I was thinking of converting a few dozen completely worn and obsolete silos to something similar. Was going B&W, but the touch of gray on the breast my make it a 3 paint route.

    For b&w decoys I purchased a couple dozen from www.blackholedecoys.com so far they have held up well and I really like the that they are fully flocked and are made of real plastic and not that corrugated garbage

    If anyone knows that guy tell him I want to throat punch him for doing that on his home page. I could read half of what was there and then the pic would change and all the words go up or down.....:doh:mad:

    Got my decoys flocked up and ready for the field tomorrow. The decoys have proven to be tuff with abuse I have put them through. The paint holds up vary and as well as reel geese. The other thing is sure you may be able to bend them but they won't break off chunks like other hard plastic does.

    Well used them in real life this morning. First off the stakes are way better then the ones the few outlaws had for getting into the ground. The day started with vary hevie fog with visibility under 75 yards for the first hour and a half. Needles to say the field the blinds and the decoys were all soaked! The sun burned off the fog in only a few short minutes around nine. It was clear to see that if we would have hard plastic full bodies we would have been screwed for the first hour or two after the fog broke up due to shine off the water on the decoys. Yet the only decoys that had shine were the old outlaws.

    In the end we didn't set the world on fire but two of us droped 8 in what I would call a half *** field. All in all these are damn fine decoys and both myself a buddy feel there is no good reason to buy any other silhouettes

    Twenty year old shiny Outlaw decoys still got the job done today.
