The Dave Smith Strutter Turkey Decoy is perfect for those times when a dominant Tom doesn't consider a jake enough of a threat to risk coming out of the woodwork. Definitely your ACE in the hole, the new DSD Strutter! As usual, DSD made the strutter at your request, as many guys were using a mounted full-strut Tom for tough, decoy-shy gobblers. The problem was the price, durability and portability of the stuffer decoys. Enter the Dave Smith Strutter Turkey Decoy; made with A.C.E. Technology, it is tough enough to withstand repeated attacks by aggressive birds as well as direct shots from poachers during sting operations. It provides the look and fullness of a competition quality mount in a portable, ultra-durable, weatherproof unit, all at one-third the price of a quality stuffer decoy.
The Dave Smith Strutter Turkey Decoy is a valuable tool for both the hunter and law enforcement agent and also makes for a great decorative piece. Add a real tail fan, forewings and/or beard (not provided) for added realism and to convert him from Tom to Jake and back for any hunting situation. Use him alone or with other DSD models, or even with one or two other DSD Strutters for the ultimate in realism! He's a modest size and includes everything you need to attach your own tail fan, beard, and wings.
Also includes a Camo carry bag with DSD Logo, motion stake.
The DSD Strutter - 18 inches tall, 15 inches wide, 15 inches beak to tail.
Tail fan, forewings and/or beard not provided.
