The Whirling Woodpecker decoy is a culmination of years of calling wildlife. A process of trial and error trying to find the best way to bring predators in close and not be seen. The advantage of this decoy is that it is up off the ground so that it can be seen from beyond 100 yards. It is also small, light weight and easy to carry in the field. One of the best and most effective predator decoy on the market. The fluttering wing will attract the attention away from the hunter so you can draw your bow or raise your gun for the up close shot without giving away your position. The folks at Outfoxed Products have found that the combination of the sound of a woodpecker/bird in distress and the movement of the decoy is DEADLY effective for all predators and many types of birds.
