    I've never been a decoy lover, but when trying to get them at point blank range for the bow, I've tried a few different brands over the last few years. I still never found one that I liked, so this last Spring I created the ultimate Turkey killer. I named him Tommy Boy. Check out Season 2 episode 3 of the Bowhunt or Die videos, and you'll see Tommy Boy in action!

    With out a doubt Spin-n-Strut. It has the right movement and I can draw them in from 500 yards You won't be disappointed..

    i am really happy with the zink avian x decoys. i bought the feeder one last year and it was so much better than anything else Ive ever used. i went ahead and got the alert/upright one to pair with it for this year, cant wait to get them out in the woods.

    I hate decoys ! ! But if your bow hunting there are almost a necessity. If you can afford them the Dave Smith Decoys are awesome.

    I prefer the Avian-X over the Dave Smith decoys because they will collapse and can be easily carried in your vest. They look every bit as good too.

    I took the cheap approach...purchased 2 hen and 1 tom Flambeau decoys off Ebay and they work great if you have the right scenerio...I have had turkeys close enough to my blind to spit on using them...I may have $20 invested in all 3 (with shipping:)...

    I am a big fan of Cherokee Decoys. Low cost and very life like.

    Well 2 years ago I used a Primos she mobile and Jake mobile. They worked fantastic. This year I got the Pretty Boy set. Effectiveness remains to be seen. It I've heard good things. I may also toss the she mobile into the set as well.

    That does mean alot to me, but the price wheww, I have to just keep using my old ones for a while, If I would have hit that lotto the other night man I would have some dsd in the back of my new truck.
