    A few years ago I picked up a couple camo blankets for less than $5 a piece, the material was rough as heck so they have just been used for outdoors and decorations. Sent 1 with my mom and told her a rough idea of what I wanted. A couple days later she gave me this.
    I can carry 8 full bodies no problem, seems strong and sturdy. Even has some pockets built in the inside. Think this will help alot with getting these dekes moved around. And since I already had the material, it didnt cost me a dime.

    I am pretty sure in the future I will be capitilizing on my mothers sewing abilities. She mentioned using a canvas, so I think for any other bags in the future I may try getting more specialized weather resisted material and letter her build me bags. Sure would beat spending $50 on a bag. Next assignment will be a bag for magnum goose floaters, think I might have her make it back pack style....hmmmm

    Id be worried about the bodies rubbing against each other with no separation between em.

    Looks good tho :cheers:

    Think I should have her make little individual "socks" for each to sit in? Those dekes dont really brake down easily so I would prefer to keep them set up. What do you think?I could have her add sections, but I think that would make it a sick deke bag....:thinking:

    Socks are primo... like Dave smith uses and some of the others..buuuut takes quite a bit more time putting em on each one. Separators are easier and can still leave em attached. Might not be able to get 8 in there.. 6 prolly.. but would be better in the long run
