    <P>The hens are the new Flambeau master series decoys with the molded heads. I re-painted the bodies and added the feathers. The sunlight made the hen heads appear white. They are actually painted a decent blue /grey from the factory. Although I think they need to be a&nbsp;darker blue/grey.</P> <br> The tom is a 6-7 year old Flambeau repainted.<br>

    <P>That's cool with the feathers, but how are you planning on carrying them in the woods?? Seams that stuffing them in the vest would tear the feathers off?</P>

    <P>Good idea.&nbsp; I always wanted to try the mounts in the bottom picture as decoys. Eastern shore goosehunters have known for centuries that nothing beats a stuffer. Why would'nt the same hold true for another keen-eyed bird like turkeys?</P>

    I have a laundry bag from Walmart ($6.00?) I dyed and spray painted camo to carry the decoys if I want to carry in three or so. Just stick them in head first. Or you can carry two by the slots in the bottom of the decoy upside down&nbsp;with one hand (the gentle way). The urethane gorilla glue if tough. I am not too concerned with the feathers. I will just re-glue some more if needed. <br> <br> Also in Walmart they have breathable laundry bags for $.94 each in red, white and blue. They are just perfect for GHG fullbodies. I used them last year and was real happy with them to help protect the decoys.<br> <br> The mounts in the picture are my girlfriends from three years ago. Bearded hen shot on the first day and the big tom on the very last day. Not going to use them for decoys, but I have a jake I shot from the same tree as they bearded hen four days later.&nbsp;I mounted it myself and&nbsp; am seriously thinking of using it as a decoy. But only during the week when no one is around. Just might intimidate and old tom. Can't get more realistic than that. I have it on a 2 by 10. Plan on wrapping my arm around it and walking in the dark. Than wrapping an orange yest around it when I walk out. <br>
