Introducing the 2016 Tanglefree Flight Series Mallard Decoy

Introducing the 2016 Tanglefree Flight Series Mallard Decoy

At SHOT Show 2016, the WILDFOWL Online staff saw first hand the Tanglefree Flight Series Mallard decoy is far from a quick wood shop creation that's simply being mass produced.

When you first look at this decoy, you'd think it's the real thing. The craftsmanship and detail that went into making this decoy is easily observed the second it rest in your hands.

The origin of the Flight Series Mallard decoy began when world class decoy carvers and artists recruited waterfowl hunting experts with over 100 years experience to examine live mallards and critique them in every different scenario, before taking the first steps in developing a prototype.


Decoy carver Michael Braun worked very closely with the Tanglefree team to ensure the observations of waterfowl hunting experts were relayed from concept to a living reality on the water.


The Tanglefree booth at SHOT Show 2016 showcased many realistic-looking decoys, but few came close to the color schemes and detail featured in the Tanglefree Flight Series Mallard.


The body has a bulky look to it and the feathers are carved so perfectly that you can see little feathers on top of feathers.

The Flight Series includes 2 upright drakes, 2 rester drakes, and 2 upright hens. MSRP is $79.99 for the Flight Series Mallard set of 6.

Upright Drake- L 16.5" W 8" H 6.5"


Rester Drake- L 15.5" W 8" H 5.75"

Upright Hen- L 16.5" W 8" H 6.5"

The incredible detail and craftsmanship that went into the Tanglefree Flight Series Mallard is second to none. SHOT Show 2016 had plenty of beautiful guns, but when it came to decoys none came close in detail to the Tanglefree Flight Series.
