couldn't i just use a normal bigfoot body and paint the head differently with orange feet? paint some bars on the chest and call it a decoy, would it work fella's??

thanks

Tom, it should'nt be a problem. On one of the Whistling Wings videos they are hunting with Kevin Gross in California and he had his Foots painted into specks, looked pretty good. You might take a look at Jim Jones website also, he has a BF painted into a speck.

Yes, it can be done. I have toyed with the idea myself. A buddy of mine called Bigfoot because they use to make spec fullbodies years ago. They said changing the paint machines over was just not worth it. Said there was no market for spec decoys. Go figure that out.... Good luck!

yeah i saw them. they are nice but i am just looking for about a half a dozen for some early season shooting. don't want to spend that much. i though that i could buy some extra bigfoot heads and paint them for specks, throw some bars on the chest and call them speck decoys. then for late season i can just have some honkers when i put the honker heads back on. they will have bars on their chest but by the time the geese see those it will be too late!!

also, i will get some extra feet to paint orange for the specks.

customnorthwinds does repainting for fullbodies I think they charge something like 15 to 20 dollars to paint bigfeet decoys and they do a good job
