    Any of you ever put tail loops on your BigFoot goose decoys? If so what size bungee cord did you use and I guess if you could share a picture that would be great. I can usually get four decoys on each arm. Not sure if I would be able to carry more with each hand with tail loops or not.

    any and all thoughts, opinions and pictures are appreciated!!

    Don't use bungee cord, use black waxed Longline or Seiners cord, it's cheaper and stronger.

    We use para cord and it works great.

    1/4” or thicker shock cord, (sgt. knots, or Amazon) loop is made with a 20” piece of line. Drill through the tail and secure with an overhand knot, or a water knot if you’re a knot guy.

    I’ve also seen guys put 550cord on the leg bases. Bigfoots get clunky. The best we got was 13 on my buddy who’s 6’5”.

    We used 14” paracord. Seems to much on the set up but 7-8 per hand on the take down

    Have used 550 cord and it works well.
    6 full body decoys per carabiner. Reasonably carry a dozen per trip.

    It's a handful but doable.
