Default Avian X decoy turkeys

I picked up a couple of the Avian X turkey decoys today at Cabelas. Getting ready for this weekend to get after those spring goblers. These decoys appear to be nice decoys, good color and appear fairly real looking. I made some heavy bases to set decoy on hoping to stand up to that panhandle wind this weekend
Anyone else like these decoys ? Hoping to get after few toms this weekend, hoping for good luck.
Will try to post results

I have an avian jake and it has worked well. Only thing is if you get a Tom that beats up on it you might have to patch it since it is inflatable. First time out a gobbler poked a hole in my jake!!

Did you have any luck last weekend?
I was up there then but temp and wind weren’t cooperating with me, lol
Hoping this weekend better
I’m thinking they’re still a little early on season but they should be good hunting soon

Itís early for that part of the world. Keep your powder dry and good luck! Late season(according to TPWD standards) is always good out that way!
