    I think those could still have some value on a calm day.

      Seen them in rhe magazines, never in person. Don't look the greatest, I'd bet it would get shot pretty quick with some excited shooters lol

        I believe that idea was resurrected in the duck decoys world. If I remember right it was G&H that came out with a 'balloon decoy but I could be wrong. Getting late or I'd try to find it

          I think I still have some of those somewhere. At least the Mylar they were made of didn't easily tear or pop. I did the black and white balloon thing when it became the hot idea about two or three years into the conservation order. Failure! Carry around the helium tank to blow up balloons. Lots of problems with the concept. The biggest was that it did not take much wind to blow the tethered balloon to the ground. Pop! They were just as much hassle as keeping the Reel Wings aloft.

            Remember the kites they started with on the Texas Prairies? It was literally a standard kite with a clear plastic material and a flying snow goose on it.

              Can you imagine, the designer must have said, "Let's put feet on them to add to the realism!"

                Looks like he spent a little too much time in the bean fields. It's gonna blow!

                  Rosy O’Donnell was the inspiration for it
