    Thinking of buying their flocked duck decoys. How do they hold up etc ?

    I really like these decoys. The color is what I am looking for in the drake decoys for the late season birds. Flocked heads give it a realistic look from a distance. They are a bit heavier. But you pay what you get in my opinion. The slotted bag is the way to go if you are wanting a longer life from these. My only regret is not buying the slotted bag with a Velcro or zipper lid to cover the decoys while transporting or storage. If your gonna just use a mesh decoy bag and throw them over your back. I always remove the heads and store in different bag. Then attach the heads to the body in the field. Or the lazy route. Put a sock over the heads so the felt doesn’t rub off from bouncing around and hitting each other. I learned the hard way. Can be down fall if the sock gets wet and it bitter cold out. The sock ice up and you rip off the felt or can not remove at all until thawed out. But what is nice. They sell the flocked heads separately if you want to replace or just flock them yourself. Over all. A great investment.
