Guys, you think these will fool the snows? I've painted 5 dozen so far, got 5 more dozen waiting for me in the basement.

Cost $25 a dozen and about 25 mins of my time per dozen!

Yup.
Lots of white spots on the water.
Look at how many are tricked by plastic flappin or worse not flappin in a field.

Been killin canadas over repaints of Flam super mags for years.
Had to do something with them....

foldem... I was thinking about doin the same thang with some of my older worn out dekes. I think they look great.... obiously they'll be a little smaller, but I don't think it will matter... good work!

The paint I used is just spray on Kilz, it's kinda expensive but I figured kilz will cover and stick to most anything.

Get to try the first 113 of them out this weekend.

So how did they work? "wishing I was hunting" minds want to know.

I bet they would work out great, you see alot of different sized birds anyway, those could just be the lessers or something like that.

I'm kinda curious myself, how did they work out?

Would save you money even if you bought Supermag duck or even mag ducks and did this, cheeper then Snow goose floaters, Snows are small anyway??? Good thinking though I likey.

Yeah they worked, I need more though. We had Ross geese about 7 ft. over them right over the decoys, pretty sweet to see. Good decoys for the money, trying to figure if I can rig a way to use them in the field too.

I'd recommend using kilz for the paint too, it holds up pretty well.

You should be able to put then in the field just shove the keel in the mudd, We have done it with Duck decoys on land before and it works great,

Happy hunting,

How many did you get over them??????
