    I got these pics from a buddy that already got his hands on some of these. He gave me permission to share them, and I figured you guys would enjoy them.

    A lot of guys said they looked a lot like Dakotas. I'd say there is very distinguishable differences. We have to keep in mind, the main objective is for the decoy company to make it look like a goose, so they all have similarities. :)

    It cracks me up when people say, oh this decoy looks like this one. Most times I just wonder how they have a drivers license because they must be blind. Those look NOTHING like a Dakota. The Dakotas are the worst looking of that bunch.

    The DOA are hands down the best looking of the bunch. I might buy some even though I need honker decoys like I need a hole in the head.

    I would like to see them next to the Gen2 Avian X decoys. Only thing wrong with those are the head connections

    .......and a much more questionable durability rating. If Eric Strand says DOA nailed it, I pretty much believe him.

    Ok. I'm tentatively impressed.

    If the durability is as stated, they have a winner.

    I watched them step on the decoys on the pavement. They should hold up fine. Duck Dog Waterfowl filmed a quick piece on the stepped on decoy hopefully it will show up soon.
