Turkey Deception: The HDR Feeder Decoy from Avian-X
Nicolas Lenze 03.30.21
People and animals alike tend to feel more comfortable in a group of their own kind. Decoys are used in the hunting of many animals including deer and duck. This form of hunting is Avian-X’s bread and butter. Adding to their line of decoys meant for turkey hunting, Avian-X has released the HDR Feeder Decoy.
“The new HDR™ Feeder by Avian-X® perfectly imitates a mature hen feeding with her high exposed back and lowered primary wing feathers. Place her with the new HDR Strutter following behind for the ultimate mid-day to late-morning decoy set up. When turkeys are still in larger flocks, another deadly early season tactic is to add a few hens to the decoy mix. The HDR Feeder’s natural posture is perfect for this ploy, and adding two or three decoys creates a natural-looking flock.“
The HDR Feeder Decoy from Avian-X
The HDR Feeder decoy is blow-molded for durability, so you can use it for many seasons. Avian-X has taken care to include great detail in the feathers, and the paint scheme overall. The legs look authentic and are rubber-molded. The tail end of the “bird” is flocked for added realism. The relaxed posture is a strategic choice signaling contentment to other turkeys. The composite stake is lightweight and is stored in the decoy’s tail. Users also have the option of two interchangeable head postures.
