    This video was shot in 2009 by my good buddy, Tracy Blake of Ure-a-Duck Decoys. This was the first time my wife had been taped while hunting. Come to think of it the only time she has been filmed hunting. The hunt was not to take place till the Monday after opening day, but as we set up our gear on Sat (opening day) T and my wife decided to sit for a little while. Wife and I had two nice birds hang up on us that morning.

    This is the female record for NC and 4th in nation. Bird sported 7 beards.

    Thanks
    Thanks for working that out for me Jeff. This was the first time we had ever used a strutting decoy before and became hooked very quickly. T was the first one to build a tom decoy that the fan moved with a pull string. He has a new hen decoy out this year and you have to see it to believe it, most life like turkey decoy I have ever seen, it is unreal how the new hen looks. Thanks again Jeff for the schooling on how to upload the video.

    fnf...Whats the name of the new hen decoy you speak of? I hunted with a few Good friends this year that have the New Avian Hen decoys and man.........These decoys look like you could eat them LOL...I still use my old Feather Flex Flock but this late in the season i leave the Jake in the truck and go with 2 hens...The Guy i hunted with Today had the Cherokee Sports that you inflate and the heads look super real but the bodies had too much shine i thought, but still a Great looking light-weight decoy. Heres a pic of the avians...I ordered the look-out thats on back-order....Cabelas has them on sale for 67.99...Yeah i know, i hope i dont shoot a hole in it because you have to inflate them also.

    GT, the decoy I am referring to is made by Ure-a-Duck decoys located in Griffton NC. They are made of urethane foam out of a mold and hand painted with an air brush. Tracy who owns the company was a taxidermist by trade and got into the decoy business first with duck decoys. The hen decoy is on his website along with the 'Big Boss' as seen in the video. He has limited production, so he generally makes them per order. Don't know the price yet but whatever it is it will be worth it. Check it out and let me know what you think.

    Hey fnf, I found it and its on sale for $99.95...There is also 1 on Ebay with a starting bid of $59.95 but to be honest 3 of my friends have the New Avain Decoys in both the 'Feeder' and The 'Lookout' and they have Videos to prove that they go to the 'Lookout' everytime....I was shocked because i would have thought that the 'Lookout' didn't look calm and the feeder did but i seen the Videos (1 over 10 minutes long where a Real Hen is wearing that Decoy out....Cabelas has that Decoy on sale for $67.99 i think it was but that Ur-A-Duck Decoy was awesome as well...Good Luck to you and your Wife these last 3 days....Keep us Posted
