Movement kills Gobblers, seen it many times. Now make it move when you want. When that Gobbler is hung up and the wind just died. Happens to every turkey hunter. Now Strutt'n 360 XDR solves that problem and it about the same size as a hat, it is small enough to fit in turkey vest pocket. Watertight, Quite, Low Battery Usage and easy to use you control it with a key fob controller. www.rjdunkin.com
Best looking Decoy on the Market
Now I have looked at every Turkey Decoy out their and I can tell you this is by far the best, Strutting Gobbler has the most white on the head of any decoy I have seen, that is a must to make a gobbler come in what I have seen and the detail is outstanding.
