Best Decoy

Article Contents

Decoys have a long been an important part of waterfowl hunting and the range of choices available reflect this. Whether you are after ducks or geese you can get detailed, realistic decoys that can be introduced into the natural environment with confidence. Traditional models simply float on the water, but remote controlled decoys can simulate swimming motions for another level of realism. There are also types of decoys with wind-powered wings that simulate geese in flight. You can choose from different varieties such as drakes and hens so you can mix and match different ones depending on the situation.

A key factor in a successful turkey hunt is having the right decoy. The decoy needs to be realistic, durable, easy to transport and easy to set up. Often times it is necessary to cover a lot of ground in search of a gobbling tom and a cumbersome decoy is not going to cut it. Whether you go with a single hen, hen and jake or add in a tom, the turkey decoy needs to fit nicely inside your backpack or vest. Once at your desired location, setup should be quick and simple.
