Turkey decoy kit from Montana Decoy Company

Miss Purrfect XD, Jake Purrfect XD and the Wiley Tom 3D are all included in the perfect turkey Flock for run-n-gun hunters tired of heavy competitor decoys and bulky bags. Now the mobile hunter can be ready for any set up while still traveling light and fast.

The lightest 3D decoys on the market.

Jake and Hen Collapse to fit in included zippered pocket. 3 positions from one decoy: standing, feeding and breeding – with adjustable head positioning. Feather cuts for realism and subtle movement. No more spinning in the wind – stake and strap design allow a little motion for realism.

Wiley Tom 3D uses a hi-res strutting gobbler photo on durable fabric making it ultra light and ultra realistic. It’s collapsable and up to 4.5x lighter than bulky competitor models made of rubber and plastic – making it the top full body strutter decoy for run-n-gun turkey hunting or just use the back for fanning. Between 2.5x and 4.5x lighter than top competitors – we challenge you to compare weights. Collapsable – folds up for transport even with feathers. No bulk. Easily add your real tail and wing feathers additional texture and detail – and still collapsible.

A NOTE ON SAFETY: Turkey reaping and gobbler decoys are very effective, but should only be applied on private land where, if there happens to be multiple hunters, everyone is aware of each other’s location at all times.
