    IMO
    silos dont work well on snows

    1 snows drop into a spread above which means they dont see the silos
    like dark geese will slid into a spread from in front thats why silos will work on darks
    and another down fall to silos is the glare you get from them

    IMO
    i wouldnt use or buy anymore just IMO

    good hunting

    I recently bought 10 dozen of the blues. They look good and we have killed geese over them already. Easy to store and carry. I'll keep using them and homemade coroplast snows till the geese tell me different. I mix them in my spread with several hundred socks, rags and shells.

    I like them alot. If I was starting over, I would have skipped the full bodies and had a 50/50 spread of windsocks and Real Geese.

    A post note to my earlier post on this thread; I have thrown all the STUPID feet that came with my Econos away. They just got in the way and looked ridiculious!!!
