    i just purchased a bunch of the skyfly socks and was wondering how many/ ratio you guys use and which brand? I really like the looks of the new sx windsock heads but haven't heard anything about them

    We used to have about 10-15%. Now, we don't have any and we see no difference on how birds react or how close they decoy.

    I have I think about 100, not sure, but I just use them around the blinds and at the first edge of the spread. We usually don't even put them all out.

    Just remember...if you go with headed decoys they are a pain to bag and you'll have to buy more bags. You also can't carry as many at a time and they're heavier. I don't think they really help much, but that's just my opinion. I do like to put them by the blinds though! People like to look at them, and it makes them feel better. :D
