Avian-X Topflight Preener/Sleeper Mallards, 6 Pack
Such epic duck days seem to come just a few times each season when weather patterns are perfect and the birds are wheels up for a big push. The rest of the time, waterfowlers rely on ducks that are simply hanging around in their area. Whether these birds are locals or recent migrants, it doesn’t take them long to figure out where to go and not to go. These are the times when special tactics can pay dividends. Small ponds, creeks, ditches and hidden backwaters are where these birds feel most at ease. They spend their days feeding, loafing and preening in these locations, which are off the radar screens – or at least out of reach – of the majority of hunters.
In most parts of the country, hunting pressure has never been so high. The out-of-the-way places where smart ducks go when pressured are increasingly important locations for the savvy waterfowl hunter. Good scouting is key, and when the strategy is mapped out, it’s time to execute. This is no time for the crummy old beater decoys from the shed. No, this is when you bring a small spread of the most perfectly realistic decoys every created. This is when you deploy the NEW Avian-X Topflight Sleeper/Preener Mallards.
Hard-wired ducks are relaxed ducks. These birds are used to the easy life, hanging around the beachside spas of the duck world. Molded from carvings by world champion carver Rick Johannsen, Avian-X Topflight Sleeper/Preener Mallards perfectly convey the serene behaviors wary ducks expect to see at their hidden honey holes.
Sold in packs of six, Axian-X Topflight Sleeper/Preener Mallards include amazingly lifelike depictions of two hen and two drake mallards preening, as well as a pair of the most realistic sleeper mallards to ever grace your decoy spread. When mixed with Avian-X Topflight Open Water and Back Water Mallards (available in Axian-X’s Fusion 6-Pack combination), Topflight Sleeper/Preener Mallards complete the most convincing spread a duck will ever see. Don’t be surprised when you do a double-take yourself, thinking real mallards slipped into the spread when you weren’t looking.
Like all Avian-X Topflight Decoys, the Sleeper/Preener Mallards feature the innovative Avian-X Weight-Forward Swim Keel – a design that creates natural motion with the slightest breeze or current by simply snapping the line through one of two swim-clip positions. Slightly oversized at 16 inches long, Avian-X Sleeper/Preener Mallards “sell-it” like no other decoy on the market.
