Flextone Funky Chicken turkey decoy
The urban dictionary has a definition for dirty b that does not fit the Flextone Funky Chicken turkey decoy as he does not have a belly button. I myself am partial to the dirty b remix from Fatso of Demon Groove. Great workout tune.
Not much info on the dirty b turkey yet as it is brand new to the market place. Back in 2004, I met up with Lance Verhulst in Hot Springs SD and we did a TV spot for North American Hunter using the back cape and tail of a real turkey as our focal decoy. As the group approached the hen decoy they made eye contact with our Flextone Funky Chicken turkey decoy predecessor and proceeded to dance on top of him. Was a pretty cool deal.
I myself would be a little nervous that the Flextone Funky Chicken turkey decoy may scare quite a few birds off. Maybe I am wrong, but critters often abandon the scene when danger is close by, and the flopping of a wounded turkey certainly signifies danger to me.
I do like the fact that someone is trying to score kills using the body language of a wild turkey, and the Flextone Funky Chicken turkey decoy just that. Whether or not he works consistently remains to be seen, and be ready to shoot quick as I suspect the toms may leave as gast as they come in.
I also wonder what the hens are going to think? Is the Flextone Funky Chicken turkey decoy more of a toms by themselves unit, or will it bring the entire flock. I did not see any hens in the groups on the youtube clip, and will be interested in their reaction as well.
Gonna close with a couple excerpts on a turkeys body language here. They will help you this spring.
wounded turkey decoy Head Angle
When a male turkey approaches your set with his head tilted up in the air, it’s an attempt to make him look taller and bigger. It’s a bluff, and the turkey may close the distance and assault your decoys, or he may turn tail and run out of fear. Watch the head colors and wing position to see if the turkey is staying to fight, or running to avoid confrontation. The slightly upward tilted head bluff is one of the poses we worked into our decoy that drives a mature bird to fight. Most (not all) mature toms will call this bluff.
wounded turkey decoy Head Colors
The most dominant turkey in the group will sport an almost completely white head, neck and caruncles. Your jake wounded turkey decoy should not.
While rare to see, it lets you pick out the dominant turkey, who coincidentally is not always the heaviest or biggest spurred. He the best fighter in the bunch hands down. If your toms head is red, he’s probably not staying long. A spooked, frightened or submissive tom or jake will have a completely red head, and odds are they wont be at the wounded turkey decoys long, if they even get that far.
If you want to take turkey home, take the first good shot. Most of the bow killed turkey you encounter will have red caruncles or bases, with a white cap and shades of blue or purple around the eyes, ears and beak. These turkey are neither super confident nor frightened or nervous. Read the rest of their body signals to see if they are staying or leaving. Read the language to see how long they will be in your wounded turkey decoy set up.
Good luck if you run the Flextone Funky Chicken turkey decoy, and let me know how it goes.
