Montana Decoy Goes 3-D for Turkey Season

Montana Decoy Goes 3-D for Turkey Season

Montana Decoy has built a solid reputation for offering some of the lightest, easiest-to-pack decoys on the market thanks to the company's spring-steel frames and photorealistic fabric printing. Well, with turkey season just around the corner now, I thought some of you might be interesting in seeing a picture of brand new offering from Montana Decoy -- Papa Strut, the company's first-ever three-dimension turkey decoy.

"Montana Decoy has always been about light weight, portability and photorealism," said Jerry McPherson, Montana Decoy founder. "We've never found a viable way to combine those qualities with a full-body, 3-D decoy, until now."

Papa Strut features a two-piece design that quickly and quietly transforms into a life-size strutting tom. Some of the best features are those not included: no special carrying bags, no fragile mounts and no bulk or unwanted weight.

I've used Montana Decoy products before, and they are great. However, given the "flat," two-dimensional design, they aren't necessarily effective if an animal approaches from an unexpected direction and can't actually see the decoy from that angle. So, the Papa Strut is a good combination of the benefits of the Montana Decoy design and a conventional decoy. The Papa Strut weighs 17 ounces with the leg pole and folds into an 11-inch circle with a thickness of less than 3 inches. Suggested retail is $74.99.


"Papa Strut can stay in your vest all season, takes up less space than a rain jacket, weighs less than a water bottle and is built using an actual photo of a wild turkey in strut," said C.J. Davis, president of Montana Decoy.
