Old Hunter, Gooseview Ind. had a new line of decoys out last year called the "Alive" Dominator Decoys. This are like a 3-D Silo that moves. The guy came out to my place to indroduce me to all of his products and I was really impressed with these decoys!! The move like no other decoy I have seen. We were out in a 30mph wind and set up a dozen of the Alive dekes and a half dozen Bigfoots and these decoys added the motion that the Bigfoot lacks. I'm going to have a bunch to add to my Bigfoots this year. I also mentioned getting them made for snows. He said that he should have some ready by Fall or Spring season by the lastest so I can try them. It'll be interesting!
I'll mix in a dozen northwinds to add movement. I also flag 'em. Haven't tried the balloons yet, may be something to experiment with this season.
They're a lot of motion decoys on the market now it seems...but they are all pretty spendy. Some guy just came out with a Robo flapping goose decoy that look pretty good. Made from a G&H magnum shell and then the wings attatched. Guess how much? $350!!! Too rich for my blood. :eyeroll:
