Like to hunt early season? Then look no further for your perfect early-season decoy package. This amazing 6-pack includes both a drake and a hen of the following species: Wood Duck, Green-Winged Teal & Blue-Winged Teal, and is sure add a ton of diversity and life to any spread. Puddle ducks of different species are always looking for a safe space to land, to feed, and to rest. This durable, foam filled puddle pack is the perfect way to instill confidence in cautious birds flying over. Standard size decoys are slightly undersized from an average live duck, and are perfect for hunters looking for lightweight, packable, affordable decoys.

Higdon's innovative keel clip allows simple short stringing in shallow water. Higdon's highly detailed, proprietary UV painting process and deep realistic carving techniques highlight each individual feather and minimize unnatural glare, even when decoys are wet. Our paint won't peel or fade, so your decoys will look great season after season. Package includes: 1 Wood Duck Upright Drake, 1 Wood Duck Upright Hen, 1 Green Wing Teal Upright Drake, 1 Green Wing Teal Rester Hen, 1 Blue Wing Teal Rester Drake and 1 Blue Wing Teal Rester Hen.

Look very identical to the actual ducks, you can tell the paint is precise and doesn’t reflect in standard light out the box. Can’t wait to use them this upcoming season
I ordered 2 standard puddle duck pack from Higdon and 2 sets of full size mallards (foam filled) from Macks PW. Both sets of decoys look great with the exception of some paint chipping on 10 of the 24 dekes. I contacted Higdon, and they sent me a new set of mallards. The new dekes arrived, and again, there was some paint chipping, but very minor this time.
If I had a recommendation for both Higdon and Macks PW, it would be to ditch UPS. When the boxes arrived, they looked like they had been treated poorly, one of the boxes even had a fist sized hole in the side. I am hoping the chipping was due to their extremely poor treatment in shipping rather than the paint Higdon uses. I give them a 4 star because Higdon at least sent me the one set for free which I feel is great from a customer service perspective.
I am going to look into some decoy paint and see how they hold up next season. Would be happy to review them again, or revise this review after I have had a chance to use them.
