im a broke college boy who loves duck and goose hunting and as anyone knows goose floaters are expensive and iv heard that if you paint milk jugs black and mix them with some goose floaters they pass as goose decoys. Is there any truth to this? and any advice on cheap goose decoys?

I know it will work for ducks so Im sure it would work on geese.  We have 4 dozen old decoys that we are going to paint black for fillers in our spread this year.  As far as cheaper decoys check out rogers.  Here is a link, http://store.rogerssportinggoods.com/servlet/-strse-Decoys-cln-Goose-Decoys/searchpath/33523/start/1/total/73/Categories.

gotta watch rogers. found out alot of there products are seconds like last year i bought the FA lesser full bodies they were 99 for six. the paint is very easily chipped. I talk to a FA pro staffer who told me they were messing around with the paint last year and a bunch of them came out like that and they sold them to rogers cheap

They work but only if you flock the heads of the milk jugs.

Never tried this, but I have heard from friends that grocery bags will work in fields - like they use windsocks in TX.
