    It's funny how you gloss over the fact you can still buy good decoys for cheap but instead just concentrate on the expensive ones.

    Ummmm, no, it just costs way more to be in the wrong spot:z I am guilty like most of us buying the more realistic decoys, duck, not geese. If you can afford them, buy them, but don't expect miracles. I vivdly remember when GHG decoys first came out. If you recall they looked way more real than what we were tossing out at the time. I just knew when I deployed those babies at my little mallard hole those decoy shy greenies were all gonna die. Nope. Same decoy shy mallards went and off landed by themselves like before. Must have been that dang cheap Chinese paint!! No way is it my calling........A guy can still duck hunt cheap, but we all get the wants and it goes from there.

    Send me a link. Because I think $120 for a 6 pack is still expensive

    You can easily find ducks for $25-30 a six pack and as cheap as $17 for a few and goose silos for $30.

    Y'all are crazy. Plywood and paint will kill plenty of geese.

    Too many fools chasing the cool look. Before long y'all gonna be wearing makeup and eye liner for better bragging photos.

    Do geese taste any better these days? Or is $100/lb goose jerky the cool thing too?

    Decoys at bargain-basement prices were never good to begin with! Although I've had extremely good luck with GHG's hot buys so who knows and the goose silos I mentioned are very good.

    My hunting buddy thinks that you can't kill geese w/o flocked bodies & acrylic short reed calls! I've killed geese w/B&W Outlaws (cause I was too cheap to buy the full color ones) and "normal" size shells and an Olt 77! Now let's think about about that for a moment......
