Any suggestions where I could get some whistler decoys? That don't cost an arm and a leg? So far it's looking like a half dozen shipped to Canada are around $90. Cabela's doesn't seem to carry them as far as I can tell.

Where are you located? Sussex Outfitters carries GHG decoys. He has been quick when I have asked to have something ordered in. They price out just under what it would cost me to get them shipped up from the US. Another option is a fellow in Nova Scotia called Dux n Dogs. I bought some from him last year, he was very reasonable and is happy to ship. He might also be up to the hunting and fishing expo in Sussex next month, you could probably ask him to bring a box or two (or 6...) and save some shipping if you can get to the expo. http://www.atlantichuntingandfishingexpo.ca/

I am sure there are lots of other local shops, these are just two that I have bought decoys from in the last year and would completely recommend.

Thanks, I will check those out. I'd rather spend my money here than online if I can get a comparable price. So any idea why the whistlers seem so expensive compared with regular old black duck decoys?

I know in the passed we have painted our old decoys "whistler style" which worked fine. If you have a bunch of old decoys paint away. I've seen guys w
use white javex jugs on the lake and still clean up on whistlers... they aren't the brightest duck on the water

The Store in Macadam always had whistlers, Faulkners I believe is the name. Know locally as the Gun Dealer.

We use black duck/mallard decoys (home made from cedar, painted satin black) with a white rag around the neck and some white paint in strategic positions. Remove the rag and touch up with black and you've got your black/mallard dekes back.

Whistlers come right in to them.

Thanks for the endorsement Twinfan!
Indeed we will be at the Sussex Sportsmans Show! It will be our 3rd year at the event and simply wouldnt miss it.

Anyone wanting pricing can PM me and there will be no added cost to bring any orders up to the Sussex Show.

I know this is an old topic... but reading through made me think of a trick we've done for years. We simply take our black/mallard decoys and added white tape (medical type used in first iad kits always stuck best). Not the fancy, but it does the trick. Add in a few white jugs painted a little... and voila! A perfect whistler spread. We always flag them as well, seems to swing em our way.
