    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Anyone hunt over these. I always see them for cheap during season, and have bought 1/2 doz so far. Looking to add to the spread again and trying to get opinions of people that have hunted them before. Also are silys a good runner up to full bodies for the visibility. Or should I just spend the extra and get BF or GHG. Already have 2 doz GHG shells and motion stakes for 1 doz. Also made a bunch of plywood silys. So I'm doing O.K. numbers wise.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Brian</P>

    <P>The Judges are okay, they are a good attempt at a full body goose decoy. I have not priced them out but for the price, I have not seen a better decoy than the Green head gear full bodies.......People will say, " I have and issue with the paint" or They get beat up too fast". We I have hunted over Blaux 8 Dozen and they still look fantastic. I know the Paint&nbsp; job on the Flambeau isn't anything spectacular. The GHG are realistically painted. I'd say spend the cash and get he GHG.</P>

    <P>Get the new GHG FFD's.&nbsp; These decoys are fully flocked, meaning the body and the head and neck are covered with flocking.&nbsp; These decoys do not shine in bright sunshine or after heavy rains.&nbsp; We had the opportunity to hunt over these last season, and will be adding some to our operation this season.&nbsp; These are by far the most realistic decoy on the market today, bar none.&nbsp; They aren't the cheapest, but remember you get what you pay for.</P>

    I have a dz of the Flambeaus. I didn't like the color either so...I repainted them<img src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/smile.gif" align="middle" border="0"> . Now they look ok. I bought some cheap pillow cases at the dollar store to carry them in, once in the decoy bag (yes I can get 1 dz in a bag!!)<br> <br> So, I'd say buy 'em &amp; repaint 'em <br>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I love the GHG full bodies.&nbsp; They are selling them now with a base that allows for some pivotting motion, but those aren't available quite yet.&nbsp; Another company, decoydancer.com (i think) sells after market motion bases for BFs and GHG.</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Outlaw silos are back in production.&nbsp; I prefer their's to any other.&nbsp; You can't beat the portability of silos, especially if your farmer won't let you take a vehicle into his fields.&nbsp; They are very good at filling in a spread when you can't afford 3-6 (or more) dozen full body dekes.&nbsp; Heck, I've even used a silo as a flag when mine broke!</P>
