Life-Like Look and Rotating Motion…

One of the most anticipated part of being a duck hunter is the start of Dove season.  We get to practice our leading while shooting those fast flying and tasty birds.  In the recent years, motion Dove decoys hit the market running at a full sprint.  Most hunters would either have a wind operated decoy or a battery operated decoy along with a small bag full of “clip-on” decoys normally found clipped to a tree limb or bob-wire fence.  This season, we have a cool new product that won’t break the bank, but help bring more Dove-closer.

dff_web_page100Hunter’s Edge released their Dove Feeding Frenzy alongside their Winged Dove Decoy.  The Dove Feeding Frenzy features three of their Winged Dove Decoys, which are hand painted to not only look real, but move just like the real thing.  The Dove Feeding Frenzy rotates in a clock-wise circular bumping motion, making these decoys simulate feeding on the ground with other Doves.

The Winged Dove decoy is a single decoy that comes with a 24-inch stake allowing you to place it in a cut field or anywhere else where there is not an object for you to clip it to.  However, when you’re hunting along a fence line or bank of a pond, the Winged Dove Decoys has a high quality metal clip for fences, tree limbs, a stick on the ground, etc.

For a lot of us as duck hunters, choosing a duck call can be the hardest choice we come across. People have asked me in that past, “What is the best duck call”. My answer always sounded something like this, “I’m not sure I could ever answer that question.” Well, perhaps I might. Behind every great duck call is a duck caller.
Most duck hunters will stick with what has worked and proven it is duck killing worthy and I easily understand as well as respect that. As for myself, I like to try what’s new. I’m always thinking to myself, have they found something that works better?

Duck Commander released the all new Shadow Single Reed Mallard Hen Call in late 2012. A great mid-range single reed that is just as easy to blow and get used to as a double reed. Now I know what some of you seasoned duck hunters are thinking, here’s another single reed and I do not like single reeds. However, I do believe Duck Commander might have found a way to make the single reeds hang with the big boys. Being 4 3/4″ long, long reed board with a long wedge and just over an inch at it’s widest, the polycarbonate Shadow is great in size and allows you to easily be affective in executing quacks, feeding chuckle other cadences. It can certainly get quiet but with the long wedge it is difficult to break over when trying to hit the comeback notes.

Yes, the cost is low but don’t let the cost make you think you are getting what you are paying for.  A single reed that can sound great and is easy to use is worth more than $30, in my opinion. Jump onboard, because this ship isn’t sinking, JACK!
