Turkey decoy eyes are not be a big deal
A turkey decoy sometimes come with taxidermy style eyes, but is it important? I would tell you no. Turkeys don’t communicate with their eyes, which means they do not pay very much attention to them. When those toms finally approach your turkey decoy set, they are looking everywhere but the eyes to read body language.

The best turkey decoy eyes are realistic but not overplayed
We put a lot of work into carving the Best Turkey Decoy, and the eyes were not much of a thought. We knew they were not very important, and in fact most of the best looking turkey decoy eyes are not taxidermy style turkey decoy eyes, because the people who designed them put the focus on something more important. They turkey decoy eyes must be realistic and lifelike, but they don’t need to be the focus.
Our Dakota extreme turkey decoy shipment has been delayed until the first week in April, and while that is in time for most seasons, it sucks that we could not have them mid March when we wanted them. Be on the watch for some kicking footage to hit huntvids and this site this spring as the best turkey decoy hits the field in the spring of 2012.
