What brand and model turkey decoys are you guys using and how are they working? I am looking to buy new decoys and i am not sure which ones to go with?

my old man uses 3 of the cheap foam decoys. 2 hens and 1 jake - killer success for the past 6 years. Plan to pick up a 3 pack myself for this season. Don't need to go out and get all crazy with it. They cost like $6-8 a piece depending on where you can find them and they work just fine from my own personal experience when I shot my first.

I was looking at a set of three from dicks read the reviews they were all really good.

Exactly what I was planning on buying unless Gander had them cheaper, which I don't see happening by me.

I'm Using Elk Mountain gears Slip System. I can replace the cover to other critters and it's lightweight. Plus it can be used as a umbrella when it starts raining hard.

For the past 4-5 years, I have been using Sceery, and Cherokee sports inflatables. Not the most realistic looking due to some shine, but the turkeys haven't seemed to care one bit. Usually use 2-3 hens, and a jake. Major advantage is, they deflate and they take up no space at all. Even fit in a pocket. Bought what was supposed to be a "collapsible tom" decoy this year made of some rubber foam combo, (Cabela's brand) but the only way to "collape" this thing is by running over it in a truck. lol Still, I can throw the other decoys inside it to carry them, and have a nice setup.
