    I've got a lot of the flambeaus Billy Bob likes I like them too. I've watched decoys a lot and that model moves with the slightest breeze.
    They're tall and catch wind.
    The new flambeays are good..I use slotted bags in a boat I would not carry them..use the old flams.
    Those are two seasons of hard use.

    The susie shown in that pic was from Flambeau's "greatest generation." Hated the high-profiled one that followed, which is what billy bob's pictured drake appears. They were bad for rockin', rollin' and slaloming in the wind.

    I've probably said this before but those decoys and aquapod look just like my main rig. A lot of those decoys have been in my rig since the early 80's, some have never been repainted.

    You may commence to texting but it won't work. I moved. ;)

    I like the bigger taller decoys. It's my feminist side?

    I do several late-season river hunts each year. They require an average two mile walk in and two mile walk out, mostly in sand. Not easy for a 70+ year old guy. I do everything I can to cut every ounce out of the load.
    I carry seven old Pro-Grade mallard floaters that have their keels cut off, and three full-bodies.
    Those are the only hunts where I use a 20-gage gun and tungsten loads, for the reduction in gun weight and ammo weight. My back pack still weights over 45 pounds....usually 10-15 pounds more on the walk back.
