Montana Decoy revolutionized the decoying market with their ultra portable, ultra realistic, 2-D models. The company began with elk but soon learned that other animals like antelope, deer, and now turkeys can be duped with true-t0-life graphics. At first, a two-dimensional model may seem inferior to a 3-D decoy, but the trick is to deploy them in pairs and at right angles. This arrangement assures that a gobbler will get a broadside view from any direction. If the bird approaches directly, the hunter gets a turkey dinner. However, if the tom circles, as they often do, the second birds suddenly “appears,” providing an illusion of motion. These decoys fold so compactly that you can carry them in your vest and can be deployed in seconds. Get the full story from the manufacturer.
