Jack Pyke flocked full-body decoy – solid peg mounting £5.45
These decoys are a great asset to have in the arsenal. Personally I find full-bodied decoys a bit of a pain to carry as they don’t stack together like the shells, but they can be far more effective for attracting quarry. Full-bodied decoys can be quite heavy and bulky, however, this one only weighs 190g so isn’t too bad.
This decoy comes with a solid peg mounting – so you don’t get the movement you get with spring-mounted decoys but it is long enough to sit above the crop and make the decoy stand out. The fantastic colouring and pattern is made more realistic with the flocked finish which even goes into the detail of each individual feather. If you have the carrying space for these full-bodied decoys I would highly recommend them because of its more realistic effect and pulling power, as I found when out shooting pigeons last week.
