    does anyone here have any pics of tarred plastic jugs they’ve used for decoys? Individually or in a spread? What’s the best way to tar them? How about rigging them? I’m looking to edperi

    When I was first getting started hunting scoters I just spray painted them flat black then tied a drop on them with a longline clip.

    We have always mixed gasoline and roofing tar together. Take and brush it on your jugs. Hang them for a couple days to dry, the gas evaporates and leave a nice black jug that will last for years. As for rigging we run permanent spreads so each 2.5gal jug is attached to a three hole brick.

    As many as you can haul out, using jugs you want numbers.
