Last Minute Gifts: Leatherman Multitool Must-Haves
December 8, 2023 •iSportsman Staff
When the spring turns warm and gobblers are strutting, smart turkey hunters know the one thing that can get an old tom to rush into their setup is to make him mad with an inferior intruder. But it can be a delicate balance. Not all toms are as aggressive as the next, and it’s important to raise their ire without also intimidating them. Avian-X’s HDR Jake is the perfect decoy for doing just that.
The HDR Jake is sized slightly smaller than a real turkey to prevent it from looking intimidating to an approaching tom but is blow-molded in a quarter-strut posture and bristling subdominant feathers to signal he’s content, but ready to fight – which will trigger aggression in a nearby gobbler. You can increase the attitude of this ultra-realistic decoy with the head design that features a curled, aggressive posture or dial it back with a head design that is more submissive. Both heads are included with the HDR Jake.
Constructed with a cutting-edge collapsible design, these decoys are easy to transport and set up in the field. They feature a true-to-life paint scheme and an adjustable head, allowing you to customize the posture and attitude of your decoy.
If you’re serious about turkey hunting, the Avian-X HDR Jake Turkey Decoys should be in your arsenal. Their realism and versatility will give you the edge you need to bring those elusive gobblers within range.
The rubber molding of the HDR Jake is super durable to withstand the wear and tear of carrying it in and out of the field as well as repeat beat downs from aggressive gobblers looking to maintain the pecking order. Pair the HDR Jake with an Avian-X hen for the ideal realistic setup that will have jealous strutters marching right into gun range every time.
