Ways to build a bigger spread

What is the most cost efficient way to start a goose spread? When is the best best time of year buy dekes? How can I add to my duck spread, I'm thinking of adding a haft dozen feeders and resters. What paint is best for touching up decoys? Thanks for the help, hope everyone had a good season. Can't wait for teal!

I use flat exterior latex house paint. Black, white and a brown to match black ducks is a good start. You can mix colors as needed from those colors. For mallards and red heads, etc. I use hobby store paint for the heads.


Where are you located? I have some decoys you can have but they need paint so you will have some to practice on.

I have at least a half dozen Mallards and a half dozen Black ducks I can give you. I may have more than that but I have to get in there and organize things now that the season is over. I also have some mallards that can be painted up as divers. The body shape would work for divers. I was going to do it but never got around to it.

If you want them let me know and I'll get them together and you can have them.
