Programs Contests Score a Dozen Free Sillosocks Decoys!

Score a Dozen Free Sillosocks Decoys! has formed another great partnership with Sillosocks decoys, and to celebrate we are cranking up another contest.

A dozen Sillosocks decoys are up for grabs which is a great solution for mobile goose or duck hunting on State or Federal refuges, and other public lands. We are also offering an early submission bonus prize.

Sillosocks Decoys

Sillosocks brand decoys are lightweight, packable, and proven. Born from the desire to produce an easily transportable decoy, they are perfect for duck and goose hunting on public land and refuges, and are ideal for all Refuge Rats.

Contest Prizes

There are two prizes up for grabs. The first is a $25 gift certificate from Cabela's, and the winner will be drawn from the first 25 Refuge Rats that enter the contest. The second prize, and ultimate winner will receive a dozen Rat approved decoys from Sillosocks.

Contest Details

Though general comments can be made here, official contest entries should be made in the contests section in RatSkills.     RatSkills...

Anyone can enter the contest by sharing the waterfowl species of their first bird taken while hunting on public lands, but to double your odds of winning a dozen Sillosocks decoys, add a photo of your first bird while duck or goose hunting on a refuge or other public lands. So grab your camera, or start digging through your photos to find that special duck or goose hunting photo of your first bird.

If you need Sillosocks decoys now, and can't wait until the end of the contest, give us a holler.

You have until February 10, 2012 - 11:59 PM, PST to enter. Date subject to change. Void where prohibited.

Good luck to all the Rats!

First Refuge Bird
Canada goose, Union County IL. Hunting over old truck tires cut into 3rds with a painted white stripe for tail section. Had to be the stupidest of the 1979 season.

1st Duck
Shot my first duck on Rend Lake, near Nason IL, in 2003. It was a mallard drake. Came in locked up, ready to land. My hunting buddies and I all shot, and we dropped 3 total.

First duck
The first duck I took on public land was a mallard drake on Christmas Eve at Jordan Lake. My brother and I were in the middle of a lake a dusk and a pair flew up before dark. What a Christmas present.

I for one LOVE Sillosock decoys . I'd love to have a dozen Canadas or specks for the dark goose spread. I own 25 dozen SOB's and love them.
