RedHead Full-Body Canada Goose Decoys - Standard Pack
Bang for the Buck
I have bought this product in 3 batches. The first batch's stands had a lame little plastic piece on it, if you have one like this GLUE THE PIECE to the metal. The other batches had no plastic piece so problems solved. I think they dont use plastic on the stands.
The paint chips easily but i touch up paint ever year. Just like the goose shells from BassPro you get what you pay for and these are the cheapest going especially in Calgary area, so dont cry cuz they arent as good as Bigfoot, cuz they are half price.
I have had good success with em and the geese were more than willing to commit. They dance nice in the wind.
If you wanna fill out a spread use these with the goose shells from BassPro, you should be happy.

Great for the money
Great looking decoy, not out in the field yet but I bought 1 dozen the heads have a nice flocking. Great for adding numbers if decoys in your spread.

Not as pictured
Bought these on sale for 59.95. The decoys don't have the legs as the one in the picture or on display in the store. The match the red head floaters I bought last year on sale. They use the same flocked heads. They are slightly smaller than other brand's goose decoys.

Hate them and love them
As mentioned, the paint is terrible. In fact, terrible doesn't begin to describe the paint quality. The feet are worthless. We usually just leave our off. The two piece stand is sometimes difficult to manage - especially in deep snow and cold while wearing thick gloves. The body is shaped kind of goofy too.
But dang these things move nice. These are the best moving decoys in our spread. It takes just a whisper of a breeze to make them wiggle, and they do just fine in a gale-force storm, too. This movement is the only reason they get more than one star.
If I had the money to replace all my decoys every year I'd probably build a spread with these.
