    Got yet another pile of decoys to clean up, separate and (mostly) resell. In it were these two G&H Full-body Canada flappers. They are an engineering wonder. The wings are draped to the side, and extend outward with a pull of the string out the back. In some ways they are similar to a Higdon Flapper, but these fabric wings are like 3 times as big. Anyone ever seen these before? I wonder how old they are?

    Mid-later 90's. They were in an old wildfowl issue IIRC.

    Looks like “The Count!”
    Maybe “Count Goosela!”, ah-ha-ha-ha
    Nice score, GDT!

    You must be selling these. Saw them on Craigslist. G and H can tell you everything you want to know.

    Yep, I posted them up for sale. I'm not much of a field goose hunter.
    Curious, was the G&H comment a pro or con? I couldn't tell.

    Just letting you know they can answer any of your questions. I don't have any experience with that particular decoy however most of their decoys are good. Pro.
