Anyone here going to outfit the new Greenhead Gear fullbodies? These things look awesome! They appear to be pretty durable and the paint looks well crafted. I will definitely have a few dozen of these this next fall.

In my neck of the woods, bigfoots still get the job done. With that being said, I prefer to give my money to U.S. manufacturers rather than China.

They do look nice, and I hope they can make enough money where it warrants an American industry.

My 2 cents.

be careful you don't get last years batch, they had ****y paint, fell off right out of the box. but they did a better job with the paint this year, so go for it.

i don't understand how guys can say i only use one brand of decoy. i think if you mix up any of the big three, hardcore bigfoot or greenheadgear all are different sizes and shades like a real flock of geese therefore your spread looks more realistic. any way that's my spent shell's worth.

My GHG fullbodies were used 55 times this year.

*** NO PAINT PROBLEMS
*** NO CHIPPING
*** NO BREAKAGE


These decoys were washed at a carwash a couple times this year to get the mud off them. The power wash rejuvenated the flocked heads. For the past 10 years, I have used my Flambeaus And Bigfoot decoys. This year. I mixed the GHG's with the Flambeaus and Bigfeet and had great success.

Hopefully, the Final Approach decoys will be available this year in time for me give them a try.

I know they had alot of problems with them this year with the foot bases breaking, but since the customer service is great they will take care of the problem.
Wow!
I piled all my decoys on top of each other in my trailer and had breakage. I guess ,I got lucky.

VARINA :D

Anyone that acutally "used" ghg full bodies this year and claims they had no paint problems or breakage should consider themselves very lucky. I gave them a very honest try this year bout a few dozen at the begining of the season and Sold them within about a month, There was virtually paint coming off of every one of them, and several of them had bases coming apart. They are not piled in a trailer or truck either. I will be sticking to my trusty old feets

I am not sure what is happening to your decoys, but instead of selling them or wondering why it happened, give Avery customer service a call and they will replace them. I have hunted over 8 dozen GHG fullbodies and a dozen GHG shell all year and have had no problems. I don't have any foot bases breaking or paint chipping and they are all laying on top of each other in my trailer. Avery GHG decoys have been awesome, you can't beat the price or the realism. I guess I must be a lucky one also?

We have a large mix of decoys and a lot of each the green head shells and full bodies are my least favorite because of the paint chipping more so shells than the full bodies. For what it's worht I'll pay the extra up front I am rough with my toys and expect a lot of them.
