A Pretty Good Decoy
This is the first deer decoy I've used. I've considered using a
3D deer archery target, but it's so bulky I never did. The Outlaw
is easy to use and looks realistic. Large (4x4) or small (2x2) antlers
are included, with plastic bolts & wing nuts for attachment.
The tail moves and you can attach a line to it to make it wiggle,
if you like.
The aluminum stake is shiny, and camo tape is included
to cover it. This should have been done already, but it's easy enough
to do. The surface has become a bit scratched, but it's pretty durable,
and is made of tough plastic.
I wasn't able to lure any deer with it, but I don't
blame the decoy. It performs as advertised, and as you can see by
the photo below, it looks real enough to fool a human anyhow!
This is a pic of the decoy in a clearcut, about 35 yards from
my stand. Looks pretty real to me.
