Real-Geese Silhouette Decoys

Real-Geese uses digitally enhanced, detailed images and high-quality materials in their silhouette decoys. The Pro Series II dekes feature a patented, textured, non-reflective surface on both sides of the decoys, with a detailed, true-to-life color image and 12 different poses. They’re about 15 percent larger than a 12-pound honker and work well used by themselves or with any other of the company’s silhouettes. The color-matched stake system keeps everything looking as real as possible. A dozen Pro Series II dekes will include 12 different poses. The company also offers several other series that includes other species, including more Canadas, snows and blues, mallard and pintail drakes and hens, turkeys, sandhill cranes and even a cow-shaped “confidence decoy/blind.” www.realgeese.com

big foot decoy

Big Foot Decoys

These magnum decoys offer realism, rugged construction, and great performance. They’re molded from tough polyethylene with a feather detail molded in for a lifelike appearance. The leg-foot assembly allows you to use these decoys without stakes or tie-downs — they stand on their own two feet. Each decoy has just three parts: head, body and legs/feet. They come in a pack of four, and the uprights come with three flocked head styles. The feeders (shown) come with four full feeding flocked heads. Magnum size is 34 inches long by 26 inches high by 11 inches wide. www.bigfootdecoys.com

deadly decoy

Deadly Decoys

More than just your typical windsocks, Deadly Decoys go a few steps further with the addition of a BackBone Support system, realistic “body bags” and a variety of detailed, detachable heads. They can be staked, which reduces wear and tear by keeping them off the ground. No wind? No problem. With the BackBone, the decoys are off the ground and moves and changes direction in the slightest breeze. Too much wind? Not a problem either. The BackBone only allows side-to-side movement, so a high wind won’t produce erratic flipping and flopping like you’ll see out of other windsocks. www.deadlydecoys.com

The Duck Commander line also includes gadwalls, blue-winged teal and green-winged teal. www.carrylitedecoys.com

flambeau duck decoy

Flambeau

Storm Front decoys are made of a durable plastic resin and feature realistic paint schemes and patent-pending UVision Technology, matching the reflectance of real feathers in the full range of light visible to waterfowl, including ultra-violet. Flambeau calls these “battleship” decoys because they’re tough and durable. An innovative keel design includes four tie-off points, creating unique motion options for light- or heavy-wind days. A depth-adjusting anchor eyelet allows you to change water depths quickly, and the anchor cord can be easily wrapped around the keel with the anchor perfectly secured above the keel for storage and quick, easy deployment. www.flambeauoutdoors.com

david church cork duck decoy

David Church

Cork decoys are famously lightweight and ride beautifully in the water. If that appeals to you, check out carver David Church. His Black Cork Decoys measure 15 inches long by 8 inches wide by 8 inches high and are fully carved, sealed and painted. The non-glare paint is sealed to ensure durability and a wood keel adds stability. A hard plastic head swivels and is fitted with an eyebolt. All decoys are signed and dated, and all are carved by hand. A six-pack of puddlers or divers will set you back $225, but Church claims you will need fewer decoys in your spread when using cork than you will using plastic. www.churchdecoys.com
