I think they help late in the year when birds are really decoy shy. I think it depends on the hunting pressure in your area, if there's a lot then it's a good option to differentiate yourself from other spreads.
I love them. I had a spread with about 2 dozen decoys and the geese would check us out but wouldn't be convinced enough to get close enough for a shot. So I bought 3-wing flapper and have brought in the geese every time. Now that I have a spread with about 5 dozen decoys and some movement ones I rarely have to call. The only time I have to call is when they don't see my decoys, but we they do there convinced there real because there moveing and they come right in, into my sights that is, than there dead, hehe. :wink:
