    So I have a trailer of fullbodies 12 doz wind socks, my question is what's the best silouette bang for the buck? Need easy carry in option when no wind. How many do you think you need?

    Big Al’s are made in America and very reasonable. I would run skinnies over socks every single time, wind or not. Haven’t run much other than skinnies for years. Sleeper shells when the ground is frozen, but we still put skinnies in with the mix.

    Big Al's.

    Now that's settled you'll need bags. I haven't found a bag I can't destroy in one season.

    I have. Only problem is they haven’t made them for 10 years.

    I'm seriously considering rigid frame pack like this.

    Strapping them down would be a pain on a pack like that without some modifications

    So what's everyone running for numbers?

    We’ve killed hundreds of geese over 4 dozen, but will run up to 20-30 dozen when the situation dictates it.

    I made about 4 doz snows for ND from chloroplast. I transport them by using those giant twist ties from Menards/ Home Depot etc. Works well you can even make a carry handle would also strap to a frame nicely.
