Pigeon decoys.


Recommended Posts

I have been away from pigeon shooting for a while, so much so my old decoys are the old flexicoys.

What are the top go to decoys these days as I am looking to up grade my felxicoys as they are a bit old battered and heavy.

I still use my flexicoys and find they take some beating , I agree they are a bit heavy but if you are reasonably fit you should be able to carry up to a dozen fairly easy , mine get a yearly Spring clean when they are washed in warm soapy water , and when dry the White wing and neck bars get a lick of fresh White undercoat , these are now ready for the whole Summer when they get chucked about , at times shot at and still work as they were meant to all the years back when I first spent my hard earnt money , looking back they were a good investment and have paid for themselves many times over .

If you've got decoys, you've got decoys,  until you've been out and tried them you aren't going to know how their seen by other pigeons.  If the place is right and you can shoot,  then the incoming shouldn't notice. people have used all sorts of stuff to make decoys out of.  And they've worked.

See the enforcers are back in stock now, just ordered some , 79 quid delivered.

Had some a few years ago and found them pretty good, but carried around in big bag and rubbed together causing them to have a slight shine, but do prefer these full bodied when I don't have any in freezer.

Hi   ronny .... I might well be out of touch when it come to be buying decoys , well come to think about it I am well out of touch as most of my spare decoys have been given to me when the owners called it a day .

When you said you ordered some at 79 quid delivered , for how many ?Please don't tell me that was for one , if that was the case I would have to buy one in a once a month kit form and put it all together when I get the last piece , last year I got 10p for my frozen Pigeons , at that money I would need to take up 790 to the dealers and that is without fuel , sadly my state pension is not quite up to buying decoys at at that sort of money neither , being a ole skin flint , the pub where I sell some pigeons now keep me the decent carcase after they remove the breasts , these are frozen and taken out the freezer the night before I use them , recycling at it's best :lol:

Still not tempting me , but THANKS for the heads up:drinks:

😊

As I've said many times. 

Emperors new cloths. 

Most decoys do the job for a lot less money .

Some days nothing works that's all part of the challenge.
