I just picked a couple up, and was wondering how durable they are ? I noticed they sent some patches and glue in the box. Does anyone use these, and how often do you have to replace them ?

I had an inflatable jake and I loved it. Easy to blow up and easy to store away when you were not using it.

As far as durablility goes....I had a Tom get on him and put two spur holes in him the first year I had it. When he started deflating I shot the Tom off the top of him. I was able to patch it with two bicycle patches.

He survived that but about 5 years later I took Theridgehunter to Missouri with me and poor old jake didn't survive being acidentally stepped on by theridgehunter's size 13's. :smack:

It was all worth it though, we killed two nice Tom's that week. :thumb:

I have had 1 for a few years but I sure as heck wouldnt use it around the Ouahita NF you will be lucky if that decoy is the only thing that gets the air let out of it!:smack: They do react to air movement better though! But as with my warning I have already run one "Peckerwood" off of it before the wife and I got shot in the cross fire- will not use it again on public land!

They are great for hunting in the bottoms......if the water keeps rising you can float out on them:biggrin: :wink:

Never used them, but the one's I've seen look pretty good. Windy days it looks like they would move alot, but most light weight decoys do the same thing.
