    I've been out of the loop on new decoys for a little while . What are some of the better stackable sleeper shells available anymore for Canada geese . Thanks

    I use Bigfoot B2 sleeper shells. Same great durability as bigfoots, they stack reasonably well, and are heavy enough to not blow away in 30mph winds (unless they are on ice).

    Have 6 dz bf’s but they always curl under at the bottom. They aren’t even stacked tight, just sitting on top of one another in the blind. Been like this since I bought them 3yrs ago. Looking at some avians now

    Dakota's offers a very nice option. I've hunted over them for a few years late in the season and they have held up well from what I've seen.

    How do they hold up to being shot?

    I've been told bigfoots are the best but I haven't hunted over them. I have a few of the 1 piece GHG and several dozen DOA's. DOA's are heavy but look great and stay put.

    Are the DOA’s really dark? It seems their fb’s are and wondering if it helps them stand out.

    I have 10 dozen Big Foot sleepers. I like mine a lot. They have full ground contact so the wind doesn't scoop them. They stack and store pretty good. The paint....... blah blah blah. The flocking blah blah blah. It's all good. They are the standards. I wish I had 6-10 dozen magnums. We have shot plenty of geese with the regulars.

    We use to run the LS GHG we placed them every other one in a cheap garbage bag and stacked 6 together.
    They still looked new when we sold them and I still have a few too. all bought on Salre at Cabelas for $99. or an even $100 I had some of the OS GHG , again we stacked the with plastic bags in between they got to heavy for me to manage but worked just fine.

    I wouldnt buy the Hardcore, Redhead or Basspro
