    Talked with Scott and he has zero available, only mallards.
    Does anyone have a reliable source or willing to sell?
    Looking for a couple dozen.
    Thanks fellas.

    I am going to try the stakes gibson sells for old floaters, hit the white with spray paint, clip the tail and stick them at the waters edge.

    Work great for us, rice and natural, but I’m not parting with the carefully gathered collection…had 6 dz stolen at WU location, only real decoy theft to date…

    Buy the mallards and paint them into sprig, they are the easiest decoy in the world to repaint, they can be done 100% with a few rattle cans, no detail needed.

    Yeah I’m pretty sure it’s the same mold, just a different paint scheme.

    Me too, but even if it's not the tail should be in the stubble so it won't matter.
