Wow, I didn't know they weighed that much! It looks so realistic and I think they would make the hunt even better! Thanks for the info!I have one of the first ones ever made. It has been excellent over the years. Mine is pretty heavy (32# I think). Since then they have trimmed weight out of them with material and molding improvements. I think Greg at DSD told me that they are under 25# now. The decoy is awesome and looks crazy realistic.
For $699, you could buy a life size mount of a real buck.Does anyone have a DSD? I am thinking about purchasing one. The website says if you order now you will get it at the end of the summer. $699.00 is pretty expensive but it looks like it is very high quality. Any advise would be great!
lolI decoy nearly every sit. There is no way I'd buy that. It is to heavy, to expensive, and I'd rather have a Wind Drifter that moves around. For the record, several years ago I bought a blow up doll like doe to try out. It looked fake, but the biggest buck I ever saw came into it. Didn't dust the buck, but this thing did the job. No need for the DSD, for all the reasons! Thing was laughable! LOL I've tried every decoy on the market since, and they all work. Only thing I prefer is lighter, more compact carrying, and more movement. None of that with the DSD!

I go to a lot of estate sale auctions and mounts are almost given away or thrown away because nobody will bid on them. Most shoulder mounts, if they sell, go for $5-$20. Anything big like an elk or full body mount never sells. No one wants the pain in the neck of transporting it. So just think when you die your family will most likely throw your taxidermy stuff away!Sure... for a brand new mount.
I haven't looked, but there's bound to be some old mounts for sale out there.
