    I need more decoys like I need a 4th nipple.

    That said, I just bought some. Any tips on care, setting, picking up, transport... other than what has already been said?

    Read the instructions on how to install the stakes. At first I ignored them and it was a pain in the *** but the instructions specify how many "holes" you are supposed to leave between the two metal stakes. Can't recall what it was but once I realized there was a method to the madness the install was a breeze.

    I have 11 dozen and can store them in two of those silhouette bags from Amazon. No complaints so far but they've only been hunted four or five times this year. Haven't had to deal with frozen ground this year so can't comment on how well they'll do there.

    Like you, I have no need for more decoys but right now I can't see myself adding to the 3 or 4 doz full bodies I have when they're $300+ a dozen (on sale) when I can get 5 dozen divebombs for that price.

    Unlikely, they shine terrible on sunny days, & the "holes " in the plastic hold water believe it or not. I've had them all freeze Together in the bag after a rainy day. The price is right for what they are ...... Real geese are much better in my opinion
