    Any suggestions on how to repair Higdons decoys (foam filled) I have two that have 2x3 holes in them.

    Any good caulk/glue. 5200 is a good place to start

    Remind your buddies the flying ones are the targets not the decoys.

    :l too true.

    On a more serious note, If I'm not hitting decoys frequently I'm not working them in well enough. I patch 20+ decoys every season and I only shoot at the flying birds. :l :z :z

    I just use a hot glue gun and squeeze some inside and then over the surface so it won't pull out.

    Native NV Ducker Not sure what 5200 is. Does everyone use body filler to finish off the area.
