    Yes it has. Age old argument, over a bird with the brain the size of a pea.
    Do numbers matter, or does size matter. Does any of it matter?

    Do what YOU think works. What works for another guy may not work for you, because he is doing 'another' thing that you aren't, like staying hidden better, or hunting less pressured birds, or simply going more often.

    If YOU do not believe in your set, you won't be happy.

    Go generic. Black, white, blueish/gray bill. The added details are for you, not the birds.

    Greater involves LESS work, as the sides are pretty much white. Lessers are vermiculated. Head color is different. although, most folks in the Chesapeake call them blackheads!

    Bluebills dont care. IMO, with divers like Bluebills, it's more about numbers than individual block species

    Some of the best goose decoys I have hunted over were silhouettes that were painted black with a white cheek patch and white on the poop chute. I made 2 dozen for my grandson, he had a big laugh as he uses fancy flocked birds. I convinced him to try them. He did and now he uses them for a fast setup.

    What about the scaup comments? Scaup are dumb as a rock. No detail needed.
