    <P>I was curious. Last year I went to a waterfowl show on lake Erie. There was several people that sold Decoys of Foam un-painted. I have several models of decoys. I just haven't sold any unpainted. Is that a trend for the Ohio and other northern states.&nbsp; I was wondering if I should do marketing with un-painted decoys. Needing some Ohio Waterfowlers input>>>>>></P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Thanks for the Info Stan,</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I make several Diver Ducks and few Puddle Ducks. I would like to Post them to show the forum members. But I think &nbsp;that would be spamming . I have contacted Mark about advertising, we've been playing phone tag. It depends on the cost of advertising as to us putting a banner on the forum or site. We have to think it would be justified by the sales. </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I have not offered these floaters to the public before. I have been selling them to word of mouth customers. Since we bought a new facility we can now mass produce better.&nbsp; So we are trying to wiegh out the advertising and where to put it. </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">IF it all works out you'll see my product. As far as burlaping that is a great way to help&nbsp; with paint and dings. I have a patented vinyl coating on all of my floaters. It protects it from UV and makes it easy to paint with all enamels and acrylics. I have way more detail in out Foam birds than anyone on the market. Although it is a customers choice, I would highly advise against burlapping a Ure-a-Duck Decoy. The whole purpose in our style of decoy is the detail.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Thanks again for the reply and info</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Thanks again.</P>
