8 awesome new decoys for waterfowl, big-game and turkey hunting




Look for decoys that are realistic and durable, but also take into account their size—don’t forget you’ll need to transport and assemble them, as well as store them during the off-season.

Big game

Solid or three-dimensional decoys are tough, lifelike and easy to set up, but they can be bulky or heavy. Two-dimensional decoys trade off realism for ease of carrying, making them ideal for hunting in the backcountry.



The size of your spread matters, so consider buying decoys in sets. Start with basic models such as sock-style decoys to populate your spread, then supplement them with the likes of full-body and motion decoys. Socks are light and easy to store and use, and with minimal expense, they add movement to a spread.
