The best turkey decoy has hatched.
Hats off to Bill Wilroth and his crew at Dakota Decoys. The project is only 2 weeks off our original timeline.
It took some time to get the new polymers to release from the mold properly, especially with some of the deep cuts Constantine carved into the body of this jake turkey decoy. It’s all worth the wait in the end, as those little details go a long ways towards capturing the proper body language and replicating nature.
Turkey Decoy Paint is Next
The next step is happening as I type, and that is the painting of the decoy. The number of paint steps Dave Constantine put into painting this turkey decoy is ridiculous. Leave it to an artist to slow down the process. Each color is a template placed over the bird and sprayed on until all the colors and layers render a finished turkey decoy.
The new plastics used actually allow the paint to seep into the plastic, so we don’t have to worry about paint chipping off your turkey decoy. Just another step in the process of creating the best turkey decoy available.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the latest sample and will share the details as we move along. Big thank you to everyone who has put their trust in the project and pre-ordered their turkey decoy for this spring. It’s a first come first serve deal and we have already forecasted a bump in our original sales estimates on the turkey decoy.
