    If Your boat is not full of decoys; Then You need more decoys....

    If your boat IS full of decoys; Then You need a bigger boat!

    The truth about decoys is all that matters is how well you hide.

    But... I’ve been preaching about the Dakota packable mallards this year. Lightweight and move great with a tiny bit of wind. Big fan, now have 3 dozen of them.

    The older I get the more I'm interested in things that are light weight. :tu:tu

    I have killed ducks over a pile of decoys and have killed ducks over a single decoy. If and when ducks get down to Ga they are used to seeing large numbers of decoy spreads so some times one decoy has lead to a limit. You know it’s bad when puddle ducks and divers light in the middle of the lake.

    heck we sometimes take several boats filled up. Kinda knew we were over doing it once this year. we only had about 1/3 of a mile to run down a shore line. told the group I think we were at max and feared we may lose a bag of full body ducks. sure enough we got to the shore and I noticed one was missing. everyone said they didn't recall hearing one of the bags fall over but who could've of at o dark thirty with the outboard running. I think my buddies son who was operating one of the boats got a little to throttle happy after I told everyone to take it slow and easy for the short run we had. there are few places I hunt that I don't like putting out a big rig.

    I have two dozen of those decoys. They aren’t that much lighter than the rigid Dakota’s I have or even the Flambeau Master Series Extreme mallard decoys which are almost 30” in length and move well in the slightest breeze due to their light weight and higher profile.

    I just got some Foldem Mallards, they aren't as light as the Whiterock Nomads.

    Should work well for walk in trips

    The truth, you can't handle the truth. Sunshine, Wind, clean nice decoys and being on the X!
