    Mine should be here tomorrow. I will write up a review when finished with it. I am going to try and watch it between deer hunts this weekend!

    Not a bad video, surprised they went all the way to SD and only filmed one hunt? Covered all 3 seasons, a little how to info in there...but not to much. I could do without the fluff they add like how to give water to a dog. Otherwise a good video done by good people, can't ask for much more then that.:tu

    Still wish I could justify a full body rig, but even a 500 decoy spread with the bigger trailer still knocks a guy down $12-13000.....guess I will have to stick to socks for the time being.

    Well how about after this spring I will sell my entire sock spread, extra blinds, and trailer and we can get 5 of us to all kick in $3,000?

    Pretty sure I am just to lazy to make a fullbody attempt again, it is sure nice getting 800 dekes and 3 blinds in the back of the truck.

    Got mine today... I think it is an excellent educational tool for all but the most avid snow goose hunters, great hunting footage and alot more down to earth than some of the high and mighty self proclaimed "experts". I would highly recommend it for entertainment or education. :tu:tu

    Barry,

    From what I saw and experienced up here this fall, I think everyone could go back to diapers and paper plates again next spring... more grey than white and blue combined!! We were shooting full limits on a small group of refuge geese in a small hay field daily the last week or so. I can't wait for Spring!!

    Whatever happened to Zink and the Avery guys claiming that they could kill 'as many' snows over a 'SMALL SPREAD OF FULL BODIES' as the guys do over the 'big spread of windsocks'?

    At one point Zink claimed this as a fact, and hinted they had video in the works to prove it- This was a couple years ago now.

    Is this the video? How many decoys do they have out? Couple dozen?

    From what they say on the video they started out in '06 with 1500 and halved that in '07, apparently they are now down to about 400-450 FB's. The footage is certainly impressive...

    It's too hard to actually say what works better. I'm sure the Zink guys could've used windsocks and killed just as many.
