I use both. Full bodies normally, but add shells and silos if I need to go big
What about those stuffers Trev! ha.
Well I lump them in as fullbodies.
Silos all season long,sold off trailer and all of the full bodies seven seasons ago,best move I ever made.
What do you do when the ground freezes? Drill holes or Y boards?
I bought a 1lb dead blow hammer(mallet) from harbor freight(theirs are bright orange and cheap with a lifetime warranty) and I haven't found ground frozen enough yet to not be able to get the stakes in.
do you ever bend stakes with this method?
I hunt mainly plowed fields,never an issue setting wooden staked Real Geese in that situation.
If I do run into a field that is not broken ground (plowed) ,Ive used the slide punch with great success.
Ive wondered about the wire staked silos,but sounds as though them stakes are pretty dang tough and can be hammered into frozen ground with ease as well.
If I did not already have enough of a skinny spread,I wouldnt mind adding some Dive Bombs to try out.
Silos are nice additions when you can’t drive to where you are setting up or have limited vehicle or boat space.
I always use shells in conjunction with full bodies. I like having the resters and sleepers in the spread.
In frozen fields I use a similar approach mentioned above for silos. I have a small hand sledge and a short piece of orange rebar. Paint the rebar orange so you can find it again when you set it on the ground.
not in the 3 seasons I've had them(dive bombs).
