After a tough go of it later in the season I thought about flocking the heads on my bigfoots.Have any of you guys tried this?If so did you notice a difference at all in how the geese decoyed?

One thing you have to keep in mind with flocking is that it rubs off very easily. You will have to really baby the heads if you do this.
Scheels in Fargo used to have a flocked head set up. I didn't really think it looked all that impressive. I don't think you will get what you are looking for out of a do it yourself flocking kit. I think the really good flocking jobs are custom done.
I understand that you can remove the original heads pretty easily, but I thought you aren't supposed to remove the heads from the feeders?
I forgot to ask, mallard, what brand flocking are you using?
Well after researching it a little bit, I decided to try it. I went to scheels and got a box of velvet feathers. Here goes nothing!
Well I just finished my first head, and they look awesome. I guess the real test will be this fall to see how they hold up. I am either thinking of taking all the heads off and putting them in a decoy bag, or just getting a bunch of tube socks and being more careful with them in the trailer. How do you guys that flock store them?
