I like to bowhunt turkeys, and for that, decoys are a necessity. I’ve been using Avian-X inflatables since the first hens came out five or six years ago, and have killed a slew of turkeys over them. The newest pose in the Avian-X lineup is the LCD Laydown Hen, which perfectly replicates a hen’s breeding pose. Yes, in a pinch, you can just use an alert hen without the stake to replicate this. The laydown pose has flared wings, though, that keep the decoy from leaning to one side or the other when placed on its belly, resulting in the most realistic-looking breeder hen decoy that I've ever seen. This is a specialized decoy with a specific purpose. Early in the season, there is no deadlier decoy combo on mature gobblers than a fake strutter paired with a breeder hen. This one costs about $80.
