In the midst of spring-cleaning, you may find that you need update your turkey hunting gear. Prepare for the spring season and gear up with the top turkey hunting gear in the industry.
The Heavy-Duty Realism (HDR) line of turkey decoys are blow-molded into reality from hand-carved designs. These decoys harness unbeatable detail and durability. The HDR Jake is sized slightly smaller than a real turkey, but just big enough that he’ll make a tempting target. His quarter-strut posture and subdominant feathers signal he’s content but ready to fight if an opportunity presents itself. This decoy has rubber molded leg stumps with authentic spur detail, a pre-attached synthetic beard, true-to-life paint scheme and feather detail, and realistic movement without unnatural spin. Choose from two included removable head designs – one with a curled, aggressive posture, the other straight and submissive. It also includes a carbon stake store in the tail and a convenient carry bag. Pair with any Avian-X hen for a completely customized setup, and you’ll paint a picture that’ll draw in every boss gobbler for miles. Learn more by visiting Avian-X’s website.
