    DSD's are good....but if your decoy doesn't have turkey semen on it, your not hunting!

    When you purchase a DSD you recieve an individual over the shoulder bag for the hen, and a multi-deke over the shoulder bag with the jake. I too was wondering how mobile I would be with the decoys, but aside from a little time pulling them out of the ground and putting them in a bag, I see no significant difference. 1 bag-across your back-won't even notice it:tu

    Awesome Band!!!

    I hunt over both the DSD jake and hen. I can't say enough for the realism and what it does to a turkey when he or she sees them. I've been hunting turkeys a long time and killed plenty over no dekes, foamies, and rubber dekes. Any deke will work ... but I've never seen turkeys consistently go love sick stupid from a deke as I have my DSD's. The only other decoy that I've had such luck with is an Ol' Tom Casanova with a real jake tail in substitution of the DSD jake.

    As far as how to carry them. I bow hunt birds, so I pack in a blind, chairs, video equipment, and all they typical stuff and still have no problem carrying both DSD's or a strutter and the DSD hen. If running both DSD's, I put each one inside an old T-shirt (to keep them from banging on each other) and stuff them in the DSD jake bag. Simple and easy. If hunting with a strutter like Casanova or a B-mobile, I take the DSD hen, put her in an old T-shirt, then put her inside the body of the strutter, and then throw them in a standard decoy bag. Pretty simple really.

    Lucky man! My parents live out on a place where I can hunt deer but unfortunatly there are not birds there. Growing up I would hunt deer before school almost every day but couldnt really get in a good hunt in that short amount of time. If only we had turkeys! Congrats on a great tom.

    That's my oldest son in the picture, he's the one that took the pic's and took the bird. Our neigbor has a newborn colt in one section of the pasture so guns are out! Makes a nice archery spot! :tu The pasture runs up over a ridge to where the birds roost, it only looks close to the house in the background because that is where he stopped to get a picture.

    DSD's are great decoys, I have about $10,000 worth of DSD goose decoys in my shop! :eek: :dv We will probably have a DSD hen for next season, but I am really impressed with the results of real feathers. Here a video from the Oregon youth hunt.
