Took Hunter out yesterday for a quick hunt on the main lake… water is down quite a bit so I took my Al’s out. For those of you on the fence about buying, or curious about shine or any of that, there’s little to none. I took a few pics from the blind so you can see. Super sunny skies yesterday. Only problem was, birds all left

I have never ever worried about shine on silos. If you consider a mirror, it only shines in one direction, and unless the decoy is leaning over to pick up the sun, and reflect it back toward the birds. A very slight tilt down on the sun side eliminates that potential problem. VERY slight.

I used to run the original Outlaws. Now, THOSE could shine, if you held it a the proper angle. But, again, slight tilt, problem gone.

Pics are nice but you can sure tell the difference between a floater & a silo. Reason I'm questioning this is I am thinking of going all silo spread for ducks in a flooded rice field 1 foot depth. On the fence now don't know if i should?? Anyone ever use all silo in very shallow water?? Side note using Big Al's speck silos they work great!!

You are a predator. Both your eyes are in front of your head. This allows much greater depth perception.

Geese are prey. They have eyes on either side of their head. Trust me when I tell you (from current experience) this pretty much eliminates depth perception. They do not see the world like we do.

That is why we look at silos, and see slabs, while geese start to cup their wings and put their feet down.
