New Roads, LA-( Wild turkeys have some of the best eyes in the woods. It’s estimated that turkeys see about three times better than a human with perfect 20/20 vision.

Additionally, their monocular vision affords turkeys a continuous 270-degree field-of-view, and a slight turn of the head can show them a full 360. The primary take-away for turkey hunters is simple: The very best way to beat a wary gobbler is to ensure that he never looks your way.

While effective camouflage is essential, another piece of equipment is particularly helpful in defeating a turkey’s eyesight, but not for the reasons one might expect. While turkey decoys play key roles in attracting gobblers into gun range, they should be equally helpful in distracting his attention away from the turkey hunter. Think about it; we call these extremely keen animals toward us, and then try to hide from them, so realistic decoys that hold a gobbler’s attention are extremely valuable hunting tools. If he’s focused on your decoys, he isn’t focused on you.

The turkey decoy market is flooded with inexpensive phonies that look pretty good at a distance, but lose their appeal at close range. And while highly realistic models are available, turkey hunters can expect to pay a premium for them. Until now.

Flextone is a company of hard-working hunters. Known primarily for their effective and workmanlike game calls, Flextone introduces an impressive, all-new flock of honest and highly realistic Thunder Series Turkey Decoys for 2017, including the Thunder Chick Feeding Hen, Thunder Chick Upright Hen, Thunder Jake, and Thunder Creeper. These amazingly detailed decoys are blow-molded from a special plastic blend to make them lightweight, flexible, durable and easy to pack, then finished off with incredibly realistic paint schemes. Every Flextone Thunder Series decoy includes a strong and lightweight carbon stake, and is offered at a price any hunter can afford.

Every effective turkey decoy spread includes a hen or two, and Flextone’s new, incredibly realistic Thunder Chick Feeding Hen and Thunder Chick Upright Hen form the foundation of the Thunder Series flock. The Thunder Chick Feeding Hen has a natural, head-down feeding posture that puts birds at ease, while the Thunder Chick Upright Hen features a relaxed and versatile upright pose that is highly visible. The Upright Hen can also be placed on the ground to effectively simulate breeding, nesting or dusting positions.

Nothing flares the temper of a lovesick longbeard more than the sight of a jake with one of his ladies. Complete the maddening illusion in your decoy flock with the highly visible Thunder Jake and the versatile Thunder Creeper. Either of these two ultra-realistic jakes will effectively challenge any gobbler’s dominance. The Thunder Jake features a natural and relaxed upright pose that Ol’ Tom will easily spot and recognize from a distance, and can also be used in combination with the Thunder Chick Upright Hen to simulate a breeding pair. The innovative Thunder Creeper employs exceptionally detailed molding, an amazingly lifelike paint scheme, short beard and a realistic jake tail fan to faithfully and convincingly portray the front and backsides of a subordinate, young male gobbler in full strut. It’s an outward invitation for a fight, and something an old boss tom simply won’t allow. The Thunder Creeper also readily accepts a real tail fan (not included) for unmatched realism.

Some folks say ultra-realistic decoys are simply overkill, arguing turkeys can’t see in 3-D. While many bird species can’t perceive depth the way human eyes do, turkeys overcome this by frequently bobbing and rotating their heads while viewing to give them a different kind of depth perception. Combine this ability with their supreme visual acuity and advanced color detection, and more than a few turkey hunters should be reconsidering their current decoys. Choose the deadly-deceptive ones that’ll help keep his eyes off of you while you make your shot. Choose Flextone’s new affordable and highly realistic Thunder Series.

About Flextone Game Calls

Flextone Game Calls are designed to more accurately mimic the anatomy of a game animal by using both hard and soft flexible parts. They incorporated a hard plastic or metal tone-board with reed to imitate the soft tissue chambers of the neck and mouth of an animal. The design produces a truer, more natural sound as well as giving the user more control of volume, tone, and inflection just like the animals they were designed to imitate. The design is also nearly silent if accidentally contacting your gun or bow while in the field. Flextone now has a full line of deer, elk, predator, turkey, and waterfowl calls using this patented technology. For more information, visit
