Waterfowl Gear for Organization and Transport
As waterfowl hunters, one of the aspects of the hunt that we dread is setting up and tearing down. It takes a ton of time, and at the end of the hunt we often throw everything in the trailer as fast as we can in order to go eat or get home. In muddy situations we are forced to strap decoy bags anywhere we can find on the ATV or carry as much as we can through the mud. The end result is exhaustion from multiple trips and dirty waterfowl gear for the next hunt. Problems with decoy bags, trailer organization, and transport are a thing of the past thanks to Bag’em Outdoors who offers decoy bags, ATV Decoy Bag Racks, and Decoy Trailer Bag Racks.
The hunt always starts at the trailer, where all your waterfowl gear is stored. We often stack bags, totes, and blinds on top of each other. This can lead to disorganization, items falling in transit, and wasted space. The Bag’Em Outdoors Decoy Trailer Bag Rack solves these issues. The racks are easy to install with a handful of washers and screws. The rail systems, made of 11-gauge heavy-duty steel, go at the top of the trailer on both sides. The rails are custom-sized to fit your trailer and coupled with a support rail at the connection of the two tracks.
This system allows us to hang decoys at the top of the trailer, opening up storage underneath for other waterfowl gear. In transit, we no longer have to deal with stacks of items falling over. We attached the decoy bags to the slide poles using the heavy-duty carabiner and simply slide the pole to the front of the trailer. Our trailer system uses three poles and allows us to hang more than six decoy bags, depending on the size of the decoy.
The poles are locked into place via the channel slide pole locks that fit into the rails. Many guys build shelf systems in their trailers. While this keeps gear in place, it also takes away from storage space for waterfowl gear. The Bag’em Outdoors Trailer System takes up almost no space, but still keeps your decoys in place and maximizes storage.
The decoy bags (dimensions: 36L x 34W x 24H) are heavy-duty nylon and feature an eyelet on each side for attaching a carabiner. This allows the user to hang the bags higher than if the carabiner was attached to the handles.
The Bag’em Outdoors Decoy Bags feature shoulder straps for carrying, individual pocket drainage, and are large enough to fit even the biggest decoy. We were recently using Bigfoot Canada goose decoys and could easily fit six in a bag with feet attached. We could also fit 20 dozen Snow Goose socks in the bag. The 20 dozen fit comfortably and depending on the type of sock used, you could fit up to 700.
ATV Decoy and Waterfowl Gear Transportation
Transporting the decoys and waterfowl gear from the trailer to the field is achieved through the ATV Decoy Bag Rack. The racks are customized to fit your ATV. They can be attached to either the front or rear rack and fastened with u-bolts. The rack system has arms extended off both sides allowing you to hang gear or decoy bags out of the mud.
The best part is this gear is hanging away from the ATV so you still have room on the rack for more decoy bags, waterfowl blinds, or other gear. If you were to have racks on both the front and rear you could carry up to eight bags at a time. Your transport time will be more than cut in half, you won’t be exhausted, and your decoys will stay clean. The arms conveniently fold in or you can take the side mounts off by removing two pins for pulling your ATV into the trailer. You’ll spend more time hunting, not preparing to transport your gear.
Waterfowl hunters are always looking for ways to make the hunt easier. The guys at Bag’em Outdoors have created decoy bags for trailer organization and transport that save transportation time and space for waterfowl gear. They’re hunters just like us who would love to hunt every day of the week. Instead, they’re limited to a couple of days a week. The products that Bag’em Outdoors offers helps maximize the limited amount of time many of us actually get to spend hunting. We all lead busy lives and there’s no time to waste organizing trailers, making multiple trips across fields carrying waterfowl gear, or pulling a stuck truck and trailers out of fields. The Bag’em Outdoors Decoy Bags, ATV Decoy Bag Racks, and Decoy Trailer Bag Racks give hunters solutions to these problems and allow them to hunt smarter, not harder.
