    Cabelas has them too, GHG common, white wing, and surf scoters for the same price. Kinda expensive for a half dozen. I am hoping they will go down in price eventually. I am going to give it some time before I buy them. Hopefully they come out with some harlequin, and oldsquaw decoys soon too.

    $89 for 6 blocks? That is steep compared to any other decoy they make with a lot more difficult paint scheme. I also don't understand why they made all three scoters when just a black decoy would work. Only surf or common or white wing dekes would work the exact same. Anyway, I guess they have their reasons. I'll just stick with the oversized decoys that I spray painted black for a whole lot less and I still have a whole pile to shoot over.

    Agree with the price being to much.. If they come down $20 I will buy a set.

    They look great and when you compare how much guys on the east coast pay for handmade scooter blocks, they aren't that expensive. I'm still too cheap to buy any though, lol!

    Like Gray said, I'll take another look if the price comes down significanlty.

    This might be a stupid question for everyone who hunts up here already, but are mechanical or wind-powered decoys legal in Alaska. I didn't see anywhere in the regs against it?
