    had some free time at the shop boss went on vacation, so i made 17 extra canada goose stuffers. Still have to paint the feet and bills, along with the handle wires.

    What do you guys think?

    take the wire out of the preeners head so the wind can give it some live motion.

    Jerry your stuffers look great! Been huntin over stuffers for 30plus years.

    When I was a kid, the guys my father hunted with made their own. Some of these same decoys are still in use. One thing that is very noticeable is the damage to the feathers were the wire handle comes out. It was caused by people with gloves grabbing them and not paying attention when grabbing the decoy.

    Making the handle bigger, or do what we do know which is grab them by the legs.

    Nice job!

    Those look great.

    I've never hunted with stuffers before, but do you ever have problems with the game warden thinking you are over your limit?

    Had a farmer shoot over my head once thinking that my stuffers were eating his winter wheat, www.goosestuffers.com
