I have duck hunted in AK for over 10 years. We have never used Green heads because all our decoys are seasoned and faded. Even if they started out as green, the years of sun and silt have faded them ALL to brown. I KNOW our drakes(AK) do not have green heads yet and that it is unwise to use them in your spread.
Having that said I shall pose my question:
Has anyone ever actually used Green heads in his/her set up? What was the outcome?
The reason I ask is that I have just come across an awesome deal on brand new Flambeau Decoys. Unfortunately as we all know they come with drakes and hens. I am tempted to use them on opening day, just to see if this will deter the birds. And if it does then i'll just pull them and wack and stack. But... as with most experiments this is not going to be truly controlled because as we all know ducks on opening day are as dumb as rocks. So... again I pose my question.
Has anyone ever actually used Green heads in his/her set up(in AK)?
