Avian-X AXP/AXF Sleepers

Every honker hunter knows that creating an ultra-realistic spread means replicating multiple poses. The AXP and AXF shells are the final detail. Spot on realism, they are one piece and stackable, slightly oversized at 23"x12"x 8".

$130-$160 (12-pk) | avian-x.com

Avian-X AXP/AXF Sleepers

DSD Honker

More dainty than the DSD Giant, this full-body is a one-piece decoy with a new stronger motion system. Also, this year's version has a band across the belly to secure it to the base systems instead of the old leg hook.


$450 (6-pk) | davesmithdecoys.com


DSD Giant

So realistic you 'll have to stop that ground-swatting cousin Gus from opening fire. Based on Dave Smith's originals, the Giants are updated to a one-piece design, new motion system and a realistic thin tail, wing tips and cast legs. Comes in Upright, Feeder, Rester and Sleeper with eight poses.


$360 (4-pk) | davesmithdecoys.com

Dakota Lesser Canada Floaters

Constructed with a new MEVA plastic that holds paint and feather detail exceptionally well, the one-piece floaters are terrific for big-water hunters who set large spreads. The flocked heads come in three different positions.

Dakota Lesser Canada Floaters

GHG One Piece Lesser

Slightly oversized, the GHG Lesser features the RealMotion II cone system and the Permaloc stud head, which screws the head to the body so it never detaches unless you want it to.

Bigfoot Sleeper Shells

Complement that spread of Bigfoot full-bodies with these sleeper shells. They're just the ticket for hunting over snow and ice. Stackable, the one-piece design is as tough as the originals, so no need to baby these.

Lucky Duck Super Goose Flapper

Our buddy Eric Massey, the most determined flag man in Kansas, is out of a job thanks to the Super Goose Flapper, which mimics geese stretching their wings as they land. Made of EVA plastic, it comes with a remote, stand, lithium-ion battery, and gear bag.

Tanglefree Canada Floater

One-piece decoys make life much easier, and this 4-pack includes 2 relaxed uprights and 2 swimming uprights with weighted keels. The molds are built tough, so you never have to worry about losing heads and the life-like body postures and paint schemes are phenomenal.

Dive Bomb V2 Canada

If you run traffic for big honkers or lessers you need numbers, and the V2s are a great option to build a big spread without the bulky price tag of full-bodies. Each silhouette is 4mm thick and tough as nails. Detailed images do not scratch, chip, peel or fade.
