Avian X or Dakota Lessers?

Postby jcn24 » Wed Aug 13, 2014 11:14 am

I was looking at buying another dozen or two full bodies to add to my spread. Looking at the Avian X painted or the Dakota Lessers painted. Just wondering some people's input on those, i have no experience with either. Thanks!

Ghg is my favorite! My friend hunts with avianx honkers and those are great looking decoys also! IMO those r the best two brands out there but everyone has their own oppinion. I'd go to the store and look at them until one brand just pops out and get that brand. Goodnluck

As you get older, and hunting time is more available to you, it can get easy to go back to a honey hole too often. Next thing you know, it's not so much honey and more of a hole.

I like Dakotas, but also look at DOA. and they are a little bigger than Dakota lessers with a little better positions

I picked up a few of the Dakota Lessers that are painted but they still have the flocked heads and tails. Honestly I'm looking at picking up a couple dozen more. They are very durable and have held up very well for me.

DOA is great. Not a huge fan of the hump on Dakotas. The tanglefree decoys aren't half bad looking, I have held them in hand, my only gripe is that one of them had a hole in the left side of the breast for some odd reason

Dakota lessers are a one piece decoys which means the head is never coming off plus they are extremely durable. i own Dakotas and the other guy i hunt with owns ghg and 2 dozen avians new last year. and his are already showing wear marks on the backs and flocking on the heads.
