    Actually Fullbodies wouldn't have made that a train wreck in those conditions imo. The sun is so important for getting em in close. Not just the fullbodies. Obviously all these guys in the F5 video think so to. They say it countless times throughout the video and they are hunting over "fullbodies". Unless every time they say it in the video is when they are hunting over silosocks like this clip but I doubt they hunt over them that much.

    Some of the Avery Decoys have paint issues

    Every time I have seen there spreads they have always been fullbodies throughout the past few years....including last. I did hear a rumor they did by some silosocks but after hunting them...decided they didn't work as well.
    I would still rather hunt over fullbodies any day!

    If you go with a entire Sillosock or Windsock spread and you run into consective days of rain or snow you are screwed! As far as time, sillocsocks take forever to clean and dry, full bodies much quicker.

    Then the next question is would you be able to get you FB's in and out of the field with all of that rain or snow?

    This is has been beat to death so many times...... it is up to the individual no different then what truck you drive... in the end who cares be happy pull the trigger and put the hurt on some snows....:D:yes:sp

    CNWD,

    All I'm saying is when you go straight anything you are limiting yourself. As you know, early Oct last year in most of Sask was a wet mess if you hunted over straight sillos.

    If you have the coin, get as many sillos, full bodys and floaters as you can afford.

    I've hunted over both, quite a bit over the years. As previously mentioned, both have advantages/disadvantages. If mud/field access were never a problem. I'd take the full bodies every time. That being said, it would be dam nice to have 6-800 windsocks/sillosocks for a backup plan when it's really muddy/wet. It would also be nice not to have to pull a huge trailer around as well. Bottom line is you gotta use what works best for you. Both will kill plenty of birds at times, if you do things right.
