Dave Smith Turkey decoys "ACE"

Post by Fatmo » September 21st, 2017, 11:27 am

Are these decoys made of foam or polyethylene? They look like they are foam to me but in one of the videos the guy shoots it and they rattle inside???? How durable are they? I know they look outstanding! :scratch: :scratch: :scratch: :scratch:

I'd say they are pretty durable if still looks new after getting shot at 12 yards with a Hevi #6.

They feel soft but are of a hard flexible rubber type and sure are tough. Defintely great quality!!
My hen I have, sure is, after takin' 2 different sessions, of mountin' and knockin' over and rode hard for a few hours total :o
Oh, and the white deposit left behind, comes off easily with water and the paint doesn't fade or stain :thumbup: :LMAO:
ever wonder where the white goes when the snow melts??

And as Charlie (soiltester) can attest, they can take the proverbial beating from either tom or hen alike without the paint wearing off!

I'm taking my DSD hen to Mexico this next spring, after all the turkeys there last year.. both hen's & tom's, never went that wild and some were quite shy of my Wally World ole' collapsible $9 feather flex type hen :banghead:
I want to see what a Gould's does with a top notch eastern decoy :lol:

Don't use decoys that much, unless hunting with kids or Iowa. Never had a good decoy, I ordered a DSD Jake today from Rogers Sporting goods.

Check out the Deception Decoys turkeys. Real nice fellows and the decoys are hand-made in Kansas. I just got an order of Sandhill Crane decoys from them which look better than stuffers and are a lot easier to handle and store.
