Looking for large or magnum floaters (mallards, pintails). I just need to replace about a dozen that I'm retiring. Will be hunting further north this year so some Canada shells are on my list as well.

Thanks

You may want to consider Canada Goose silhouette decoys instead of shells. Silos are much easier to transport, deploy, and pick up. My go-to decoys have been silos for over 15 years. They work !! I stack about 100 silos (home made) on a rack on the back of my ATV. I pull a Jet Sled with blind(s) and other gear. Totally portable in just about any mud conditions, and a light enough footprint that farmers have never not said no to me.

Thanks. I may consider them. We need to plan for both water and field. I was thinking I could use the shells in shallow water if I had to. Will silhouettes work in that situation?

I use silhouette decoys amongst my spread. They give the appearance of movement as the geese fly by and the view changes.
I cut lengths of PVC pipe and shove the stakes inside to use over water. Just a thought...

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm looking for silhouette decoys. May just make some this first time.
