    I'm not sure I buy the "they work differently then Canada's" argument. You ever look at silhouettes from a drone? Birds can see them better then you think, especially on sunny days. They see the shadow, that cant disappear. I've decoyed many migrating Canada's over a predominantly silhouette spread and they are super high, and work down just like snows.

    I'm not knocking socks, they work well. I've hunted over them many times and they work. I've only hunted snows with some silhouettes mixed in, never a straight silhouette spread. However; I'm sure there's instances where a straight silhouette spread would be killer. Every type of decoy has it's place.

    I used to run about 60 doz. in my rig. I still run about 30 doz around the hunters and I love them. I'm down to running about 70 doz in all now and what I've seen on some days I've gotten GREAT shoots only using 4-6 Doz. Had the best shoot last spring with only 5 doz out. Half silo's half SS.
