Avery Super Flag

Avery's new Super Flag (3) features an image of a real goose printed on the fabric and is available in Canada and snow goose designs, as well as the Canada KW-1, which has a camouflage flipside. averyoutdoors.com


New Decoys from Final Approach

Double Cross Motion System

The Double Cross Decoy system (5) turns a single decoy into a tip-up machine, cycling every 7 to 10 seconds to simulate a feeding duck. The motor can be powered by any 12-volt DC source. doublecrossdecoys.net


Fixed Keels and More Geese from Greenhead Gear

Greenhead Gear (6) has switched to a fixed keel system on all its floating decoys. The 60/40 keels provide a lifelike ride in both calm and rough water, and the LineLock feature allows for quick adaptation to any water depth. Also new from Greenhead Gear (GHG) are Life-Size Series snow and blue goose floaters. Four-packs include three adults and a juvenile, all featuring GHG's Pro-Grade paint job. GHG has also added 21-inch rester and sleeper style shells in the Pro-Grade and FFD Elite Life-Series. These shells feature lifelike detail and common cold-weather postures. greenheadgear.com



Floating Island Mimics Marshy Mounds

Tanglefree's plastic Doubletake Floating Island (7) will replicate logs, muskrat huts or similar mounds found in waterfowl hunting settings. Stakes to secure the island are included, as well as your choice of two full-body mallards or pintails. caslindustries.com
