    I tried this on the original GHG pro-grade mallards. Never held like I'd hoped. The last of of the heads popped off just this past week. I was trying to keep it "clean" by setting the screw into the middle and threading the head on, though. I imagine toe-nailing a few in from the outside would do the trick. Not pretty, but should hold.

    Some of the Bigfoot heads will test your manhood and patience getting them on.

    I talked to someone from Bigfoot on the phone today and he said to try warming the head up with a torch or even in the microwave and to also try trimming it with a knife. I'll give her another try tonight but you are right negooseman, it was testing my patience.

    Trimming them down really helped. Went right on after that. One of the heads got a little cracked at the base from the first time trying to put them on so it's not super tight but good enough. Thanks guys!

    I have also used a utility knife and shaved alittle of the plastic off the new head opening, and it slipped on ok. Please note I shaved it very fine, don't take too much off.

    I never attempt to reinstall big foot heads in cold weather any longer. New heads made in China tend to split easily and need to be lightly trimmed. I also lube decoy head thread with some dawn dishwashing soap and they are still a pain in the but. The only big foot decoy that has gone on easy is the upright field decoyys with the slotted heads.
