I had an advantage though, my father is a taxidermist and I persuaded him to do a stuffer hen for me in a "breeding" position. The difference in the turkeys reaction was incredible! I have used that hen to bag many gobblers for myself, friends and family. There was one downfall though - I was worried about a pack of jakes, a bully hen, bad weather -- anything that would ruin my skin mount hen decoy. I left her home in many situations.
There was an idea that has been in my head for many years though -- a decoy that only used the iridescent part of the feather. 2015 and 2016 were spent developing and testing this idea. I'm excited to say that 2017 is the year I am ready to market my decoy to the general public. You will not be disappointed.
Just like the perfection and craftsmanship I put into each and every mouthcall, these decoys are each a piece of art. I mold and cast every body and head, set every eye, airbrush every head, and hand lay every feather. These decoys are now available for the turkey hunter who want the best equipment available.
