Higdon XS Battleship Swimmer Mallard Duck Decoy
The XS Swimmer decoy design has the battery and timer within the decoys housing which eliminates a traditional battery box attachment. Lithium Ion batteries are more durable, smaller and lighter in weight and are longer lasting versus the traditional lead acid batteries. No external battery box means less bulk and less weight.
A single XS Swimmer decoy can fit into most slotted decoy bags for easy transport. Recommended water depth is water as shallow as 1 foot of water. Runtime: 7hrs. Fast recharge time of 6 hours.
Package contents: decoy with attached 750GPH bilge pump, battery and timer pre-installed within the internal battery box, charger and operating instructions. A percentage of your purchase will go to Ducks Unlimited to help with their efforts for wetland conservation.

JUST KEEP SWIMMING
With the new XS system, the swimmer is a dynamic decoy for the spread.
GOTTA have it
Works in all conditions. From zero up. as long as the hole isnt frozen these a killer. Super realistic motion and a great way to add motion on any day.
Even the Skittish birds drop in without question!
These things are amazing! A MUST for anyone hunting wary birds! Even the most skittish birds will dive bomb these things! Say goodbye to the endless mallard circling, they don't even question these things!

Make sure to seal it up!!!!
Great setup but higdon slacked on most important part that being sealing it up. I have quite a few of these some lasting only 1 season then have to buy new $30 battery etc bc water getting into battery box. I’ve gone back and sealed them up underneath around the outside access plate and all the connections inside battery box with Star Brite liquid electrical Tape and have worked just fine. I’m giving a 3 star bc I shouldn’t have to finish what they started.
Just got this delivered. Spent 1 1/2 hours getting hundreds of loose styrofoam beads off the decoy and out of connection receptacles. The clear flexible tube has some sort of adhesive surface and had to use pen knife and slender screwdriver to scrape off beads glued to it. Oh, and the tube carrying water from the pump was full, too. Had to take tube off to clear. There were no dents or scrapes on the delivery box and yet the decoy moved around enough to make hundreds of static cling beads. I think the decoy will work just. Anyone else had this happen?

I love these decoys. On dead days these decoys really liven up your spread to draw in weary ducks.
