It appeared to be a good idea, but it was a huge disappointment. After washing the new chemical smell off of this decoy and using a dominant buck attractant to cover any other smells undetected by my over sized nose, I found that the appearance of the decoy only spooked bucks away. I thought I might use it as a doe decoy by removing the antlers, but when I attempted to stick the base in the ground, the rod going into the decoy broke off. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.
Decoy itself works good. Tail and head both have the natural movement of a deer with very little wind! However the stand u place into the ground to hold the balance of the decoy is very cheaply made. After 1 day, even placing it in soft ground, the bottom broke off causing it to become unbalanced. Thanks to a friend we were able to put a weld on it and everything is fine now!
I spent a lot of time this season reviewing almost every deer decoy out there. Finally I decided on the primos scar face. I am so glad I chose this one! He is sturdy and very realistic. Head moves as it's supposed to and tail is very lifelike. The parts are a little difficult to fit them all inside the body but if you follow the directions that come with it, it does fit. The backpack is nice too, and can just be tucked inside the body when he is set up. I have seen reviews on the stake breaking but have had no issues myself yet. I got scarface on sale making the value excellent as well. I have seen many decoys in similar price ranges that do not even compare to the quality of scarface. Some advice: when using scents, ALWAYS spray the decoy generously with scent killer after setup and NEVER use attractant spray directly on tail or body. Use a scent wick and attach it to the ground stake or use scrape scent on the ground under the decoy. This will prevent the decoy from holding scents that are not the proper scent for the time of year and scaring away the smarter and bigger bucks.
The decoy actually works great, however, I did not receive it from Wal-Mart as they said it was lost in transit... UPS label was generated but UPS never received a date to pick it up from Wal-Mart. REFUNDED. Bought it at a competitor and have used it successfully in the 2014 season. (NE Ohio) Good luck!
Great for the price. Easy to put together and lightweight.
