I like DSD, but there are others that will work just as well for less money.

DSD are the best looking decoys but I have killed plenty using the old foam decoys. We are trying to fool bird brains after all.

yep i got 2 foam carrylite collapsible decoys. have killed several birds over them. things must be 20 years old. I just feel like spending some money on something new.

I might get 1 DSD hen and a hen avian X, they look pretty good and are a little cheaper.

Anyone have an Avian X?

I have a couple hen Avian decoys and a Jake. Good decoys but heavy. It is easy to inflate them too much and have a rounded decoy that does not work well with the turkeys.

I have 2 avian x hen decoys. They are a bit bulky but good looking decoys and expensive. Midway put them on sale after season 2 yrs ago and I ended up getting 2 hen decoys for almost the price of one.

I bought the Primos Gobstopper Jake/hen combo on Amazon for $40, they look pretty good. They were kind of wrinkled up from being in the box but I used a hair dryer to get them out.
