AOA,
Dear all,
I need a dozen mallard decoys, a dozen teal decoys, six pin tail decoys and six shoveler decoys.
They were not available in numbers at luck star sadder market and price for local one was 400-350 a piece!
I request members from outside Karachi to help me source the above mentioned decoys.

Hamza bhai ... go for 12 mallards 12 pintails 6 teals and 6 shovellers........ if u dont find shovellers , its ok then increase mallards and pintails in equal proportion .... the teals should not increase more than 6 in 12 / 12 configuration(12 Mallards/12 pintails)....
normally you should have 6 drakes and 6 hens or u can use 4 drakes and 2 hens (the hens should not be more than drakes)

i am telling u the general rule of thumb.... other wise quantity and spread varies from area to area.(like in chashma or rasool area u require minimum of 6 to 7 dozens decoys of mallards and pintails.

AOA,
Dear kstabish & Bluff bhai,
Thank you for your replies. I have heard that local decoys are available in Lahore for 2k a dozen. I hope this is true. All I need is some one to provide me with some assistance to purchase and courier them to Karachi.

@ Malik Imran .......... Every Gun store in Rawalpindi / Islamabad keep 2 or 3 pairs of imported decoys (shams, Baddar, etc etc ) but none has handsome collection. Prices are bit higher than other parts of the country.

do the decoys come birds other than the Ducks ? I saw some pigeon decoys.

I want Partridge decoys. Are they available anywhere ?

Bluff

@Mig yes there are decoys other than ducks , like doves , turkey, deer, hogs etc ... normally in here we only use duck decoys for duck shooting .... and some people use doves decoys for dove shooting too.
Partridge and quail shooting does not require decoys cuz they are flushed before shot ... some poachers use live decoys for partridges and quails which is for sure unethical ....

Cant we make, Cotton/foam Decoys Ourselves ?? Huntingmaster may help us out. If yes, then I think they will be far cheaper. maybe 50/piece including the sheets and colors.

@M Hamza: I use a spread of 12 decoys each of Mallards and Teals with excellent results ..... The teals i got from Lahore @ 300 per pair (locally made) and the mallards i got from Cabelas (hot guys) at very cheap rates ...... We had three dozen shipped to Pakistan and the cost was around 350 bucks per decoys .....

If someone decides to order them online from Karachi, please add 2 dozen decoys for me as well, this will decrease shipping cost .....

Dear Aamar,
Thanks for sharing your experience. This season I plan to deploy local decoys. Maybe next season I might shop for imported ones.
