These mallard floater decoys took many years to develop. For a time, we thought it might never happen. Persistence through the challenges made all of the work worth it. They are beautiful decoys.
OUR MALLARD FLOATER DECOYS DESIGN:
Laurie J. McNeil, a world-champion decoy carver, was hired to produce our master copies. She took months to turn a block of wood into our decoys. She detailed them perfectly and brought them to life with a fantastic paint scheme.
When the carving was complete, we added a unique keel design incorporating our Deadly Decoys® name and logo. We love the look and are sure you will, too. The keel is weighted with three holes in different locations to attach your decoy line and weights.
DURABILITY AND PAINT ADHESION – ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS IN OUR FLOATERS:
We tested several different plastic blends before settling on an EVA blend. It is softer plastic with a bit of give for cold conditions. It is durable and has excellent paint adhesion.
Happy with the look and feel of the mallard floater decoys, we moved on to real-world testing. We wanted a side-by-side comparison of the market. To do this, we bought competitor floaters and tested them alongside ours. We submerged, froze, dropped, and threw them in and out of our duck boat. After running them through their paces, we analyzed these “crash test dummies.” Our Deadly Decoys® mallard floater decoys tested as good or outperformed those competitors!
HOW DO THEY HUNT?
The Mississippi River is where we spend most of our time hunting waterfowl. It’s a vast area that has every hunting situation. Depending on the river levels, we can choose to hunt big open water, flooded timber, mud flats, and secluded backwaters, all within a short boat ride of each other. These Mallard Floaters convince those weary late-season mallards to drop those orange legs even when hunting in pressured public areas.
