    alright I’ve narrowed it down to dakotas or DOA for a full body spread. Any input? I know both are great decoys but looking at what everyone thinks is the better of the two.

    I've just started to build a spread as well. I just purchased 3 dozen Final Approach Livecraft full bodies. Should be getting them in the mail today. If they look as good as the pictures I will be looking to add another 3 dozen before next year. Money is a playing a part in my decision to go with these. $130 for 6 sounded pretty good to me. Hope I'm not making a bad decision here....

    I ran Dakota’s for a while and the bodies held up well but the heads easily broke. Maybe they have that fixed now.

    I was looking at that, just didn’t want to spend my money on a decoy that hasn’t been proven yet!

    I own a lot of both the new DOAs and Dakotas. Both are good decoys and have held up well. Had issues with the original DOA stakes but DOA has sent me all new for free.
