Top 6 New Wild Turkey Decoys to Add to Your Flock

The 2024 NWTF Convention is in the books, which can mean only one thing — the 2024 turkey season is only a few weeks away. Of course, some turkey hunters will be ordering new turkey hunting gear. It’s a good bet that your turkey decoys are ready for a full reboot. Check out these top six super dupers we uncovered at NWTF this year. And remember, when they’re not in use, tuck them away safely in your turkey vest.

Best Feeding Hen Decoy: The Grind Bugging Hen Decoy

The Grind Bugging Hen Decoy
