Correx Crow decoys

Recommended Posts

Here's a photo of the above decoys I made a few years ago. They work well. Very light in weight and I can carry 60+ in a small canvas bag.

very nice they look the part.

Correx is very similar to the material used in 'For Sale' signs. I had a load of offcuts given to me. I've also made some out of Proplex which is a floor protector and is available from Wickes.

It's a bit thinner, so I joined two together.

Very nice. I use the same idea, only got socks sewed up {from a black bed sheet} and slip them over the body. They are stapeled at the front on top and bottom. The wind then fills them out giving a bigger profile and allows  some movement.

How you sticking them in the ground??

I use strong wire, similar to coat hanger wire. It slots into the groves of the Correx and you can alter the angle to suit. The decoys don't look much up close, but from a distance, are excellent and have fooled many a Crow/Jackdaw.
