So your going to run the color painted side by side with the b&w's next year?
I will do both. I have not used b&ws much. I want to do some compare and contrast....
Why not do it as an "X" for more stability. Depending on length, you could drill 5 sets of holes on it easily. Pivot on center with a thumbscrew and they would be easy to store as well. Should be fairly easy to do from any scrap wood
The one thing that everyone seems to forget is that the wire bends. I bought five dozen after running a buddies for a few hunts-
I had to cut the leg and 3/4 of the back wire off to make them functional.
Frozen ground and wire is tricky. Drill the hole too big and the decoy leans.
Push too hard and you bend them. Even with a slight bend the "hole template" idea becomes frustrating.
Don't get me wrong, I like them. I'd much rather have the heavy steel stakes that avalanche used to use though.
I believe I brought up those points. I was wrong and you proly are too. Welcome to the new and improved refuge
So how much shine do they have? Some guys are saying they're like the textured side of RG, others say they shine?
I think the cut one side off deal sounds the best. I am going to have to pick up a dozen to see what I think and how they work.
Frozen ground is easy just do what a couple people have said and cut an inch and a half off one side then just drill in a spot for the full length leg.
Past my son holding a goose on the other side of the pond are divebombs. Not sure how good the picture quality is but this was around 10am with full sun at our backs. We killed a 5 man limit of geese that morning and every group finished perfect. Just make sure to angle em towards the ground when facing the sun and you should be good to go.
I cut back stake half off . Drill one hole with a masonry drill bit. One guy drilling one guy putting them in as you go
If you're ever in Sioux Falls you can take a look at my divebombs. I have a couple dozen that I haven't flocked yet.
They are ink on chloroplast. Not fabric like a real geese pro series 1 or 2.
