    I to saw them at Game Fair. Never had actually seen and DSD's before. Very nice decoys. Nothing I would ever own (okay if I won the lotto) but beside the overall aesthetics they look like a well made decoy. His turkey decoy was very impressive.

    I wish we had game fairs and more outdoor shows in NY. Would be nice to actually see stuff in person before you buy. Would be cool to see diffrerent decoy venders. The Harrisburg PA outdoor show is closest thing we have to stuff like that. Hoping to have my Dsd by 3 week sept.

    Don, anyway you could post up some pics of them next to another brand of decoys like Avian or Bigfoot? Maybe text them to someone if you're unable to post? I've contemplated making an order for next year.

    Taking a picture of DSD's and ANY other decoy as comparison is fruitless. You cannot compare...it's DSD and then there are just decoys.

    I'm more looking for size comparisons then anything. I've debated honkers or lessers, though I'm leaning towards honkers. I asked for the same from anyone with RDC's as I got multiple conflicting answers from the owner and then again from actual decoy owners. Seems the owner thinks it's fine to not be truthful when talking how large the lessers are (as I'm sure it leads to more decoy sales). I know if the lessers are scaled to actual lesser size, they will be too small for my purpose. If they're the size of the old, and new reintroduced GHG lessers, I would be fine buying a dozen honkers and a dozen or more lessers.

    Rick, taking a picture of older generation DSD's that have been hunted hard compared to your brand new Deceptions isn't exactly apples to apples. In a few seasons let's take a picture of some brand new DSD's next to you hard hunted Deceptions...

    I think there is a side by side comparison of the DSD models on their website. The new one piece honkers are noticeably smaller than the original honkers. I've always felt a smaller number of the larger size originals was much more effective than a larger number of the smaller lessers. The new models look great but I won't be selling my originals to fund a purchase for them.
