If there’s one thing you can say about all of the decoys that are sold under the Avian-X brand — mallards, pintails, teal — it’s that they look incredibly realistic. Add wild turkeys to that list.
Avian-X has debuted their HDR (Heavy Duty Realism) turkey decoys, the HRD Hen and HDR Jake, beautiful, rubber-molded bodies that look like they’re ready to gobble, yelp and cluck on their own.
The HDR jake comes in a size slightly smaller than a wild turkey, to make sure it’s not big enough to intimidate a gobbler that walks in for a closer look. It’s in a half-strut pose, and it comes with two, interchangeable head/neck units, one in an aggressive posture and one more submissive.
The decoys come with a synthetic, lifelike paint scheme, including detailed feathers and lifelike legs, and a mounting stake that allows for natural, realistic movement without uncontrolled spinning.
The jake is ultra-durable, allowing it to take and survive repeated beatings from gobblers.
MSRP: Hen, $89.99, Gobbler $149.99
