Flocked turkey decoys are available
Flocked turkey decoys have been popular in the last couple years because…..the decoy manufacturers have been pushing them. It’s new. It’s different. It does not make a whole lot of sense. Flocked turkey decoys take on a very dull appearance. Might be better for a coyote or a deer, but a wild turkey has a natural sheen that should be replicated, not minimized by Flocked turkey decoys.
Flocked turkey decoys were a manufacturers idea
In the quest to be cutting edge and new decoy manufacturers took the flocking machine they got for christmas decorations and tried them on Flocked turkey decoys. What the heck, why not? Maybe if the cheaper plastic they used had too much sheen to it, Flocked turkey decoys would help cut the sheen, and the problem would be solved. As you may notice, I am not a huge fan of these Flocked turkey decoys. I just do not see the point.

Maybe a hen could use a good flocking, or at least not be hurt by it. Hens are rather dull and drab by nature, and their frequent dustings dull them up even more. They have to blend in to make it a whole month on the nest with every coyote and bobcat in town looking for them.
If you are looking to buy some Flocked turkey decoys, I would suggest a trip in the truck to check out the local flock. Pull up the binoculars and see if they don’t have a certain sheen about them that Flocked turkey decoys lack. It may make you think twice about buying Flocked turkey decoys this spring.
