Realistic decoys on the market
Has anyone else checked out the very realistic turkey decoys on the market? Maybe it's just me but I guess I never realized how far decoys makers have come.
I have seen the actual turkey mounts used as decoys but that seems like it would be a real pain to carry around.
I recently looked at 2 very realistic molded decoys online, one made by Floozie, the other made by Dave Smith Decoys. If you have never looked at these decoys they are cool to check out, I was blown away when I saw them. Some parts of these decoys are plastic and made out of molds which from real birds. The detail and finshes on them are art.
I just had to have one.........When I looked at the DSD decoys before Christmas they were on sale.
They are definately expensive, I paid $99 for a hen and that was the sale price. Regular price for the DSD was like $120. The Floozie was $169. Ahh, what the heck, I ordered one from DSD.
I received my decoy from DSD 2 days ago. After looking at this thing in person I'm still blown away,
it looks like a real hen. I can't wait to set it up in the woods and get a look at it in that setting.
This may be the last turkey decoy I ever have to buy. It appears to be very durable and should last a long, long, time with a little care. They come with a metal stake and carry bag.
I don't think I'll get a jake. They look so good that I'd be concerned about it getting shot
