Here's my problem: I hunt in west central Oklahoma and been having some great goose hunting the past couple years . As you most of you already know , versatility and the ability to be mobile is a big factor. Having said that , I'm getting ready to update my decoy arsenal. Since farmers here want us to shoot the geese off their fields w/o driving onto their winter wheat that pretty well puts full bodies out since I'll have to carry my decoys in. Been thinking about silos(probably Reel-Geese) as my best bet unless someone can come up with something better. Appreciate it !!!

Real Geese are good, I have 2 dozen. Also, try some custom rags w heads for windy days and also a few fullbodies. Get a cart of dolly for hauling them.

Try some Big Flock Decoys silos, they have a round fiberglass stake that's easy to put in the ground, and when the ground is frozen you can drill holes with a cordless drill. I carry 4 dozens silos in one poncho.

Josh :shock:

Get the Pro series with the fabric on 1 side-it is worth it IMHO over their reg RG silos. I like Real Geese much better the Outlaws (they went out of business a year ago) as I think they look better.
As for movement, well a few custom Painted wind socks sure would help. Check out Prairie Wind socks. They are very good quality in my experience.

Regarding Real Geese silos, they have Pros (with the fabric on one side) and Mag Lites (same decoy, no fabric). Both are the best silo made now, and the pros are about $20.00 more per doz. IMO- If you get the maglites, and flock em head and tail, they work as good as the Pros. Regardless, you should flock them, as the difference is amazing. If this pic posts, it shows a Pro on the left, and a flocked MagLite on the right. You can decide which looks better, and note it was taken in bright sunlight.


Also, if you do get the Pros, be careful when you clean them. Just use water, and be careful cleaning the edges. I got some used, and scrubbed them too hard when cleaning them up. The edges will fray. That is not a complaint, and not a problem, if you know about it.

Pros or Maglites, you can't go wrong. Much better than Outlaws or BigFlocks. I have had all 3. I sold my Outlaws and BigFlocks and now own 5 doz Real Geese.

I have a dozen of the G&H standard shells with stakes. They are lightweight and are a good substitute for full bodies. I plan to get a couple dozen more of them. They are also very cheap at 100 bucks for a dozen.

G& H are a great shell. I just got a couple of doz from my father, but only have 1 doz stakes. I will probably get some avery motion stakes for the others. That, and 5 doz RG Pros should be plenty.
