    Well, the brown truck dropped off the much awaited and anticipated Dave Smith turkey decoy- an upright hen. Tremendous! From the detailed lines, paint, integral stake, to the carrying bag, and included DVD (have not looked at yet), this is one fine U.S. made product! The cost is well- substantiated. I am really pumped for spring turkey season! Just like this past season's new cork decoys that I made at a significant cost, the result is more than worth it! I found it lighter than many reported and not bulky at all and it will fit nicely in the back of the hunting vest. Thanks again to all who recommended it and maybe in the latter half of March I can post a pic of an osceola tom that succumbed to its enticements. Slainte!:tu

    I was in Cabelas in St Louis a couple days ago and bought the jake. Amazing detail. I will order a hen in the next few weeks when I get more funds. I will be hunting high pressured birds with my 2 kids and if this helps get birds in front of the blind at 10 steps so they can fill their tags then I am willing to spend the money. Look forwarded to giving them a try.

    Thanks for the link, I am going to get a jake/hen combo and wasn't sure which to get. I have never been a zink fan and didn't want to really support him, the pics in the Cabelas catalog sure looked good. I'll go with the DSD.

    I agree they are really good decoys. I have the jake and upright hen. I've had groups of birds come in the decoys, fight and peck at them, then leave to another part of the field only have to have them come back again, turkeys just can't seem to leave the DSD decoys alone.

    PLUS, I enjoy staring at them a LOT more than ugly dekes on the slow days...ha

    If you are patient, I found mine used on classifieds in forums. I just couldn't bring myself to pay full price.
