    The automatic ones no way. I have had zero to excellent success with various flags including the kind that operate with a pulley inside a full body goose.

    BTW the welcome to Refuge....

    buddy has one with pull cord and 4 with the remote control. he thought getting two of the remote control ones would be the bomb and geese would see movement and drop right in. didn't work all that well from what I could see hunting with them. bought two more and even with 4 of them having the movement from a full body goose decoy and wings a flappin I have not been all that impressed with the birds droppin in regularly. can't say it hurts but not the results we all thought either for some very expensive decoys.

    These look pretty good, but have not tried them.

    I went to Angler's looking for an old school square flag and they didn't have any ... I was bummed. What's the world coming to?
