Fish and Game GEAR Flambeau Turns Tail on Turkeys

trolled decoy movement. Here’s the perk: no electronics, no noise, and no batteries means all natural “tomfoolery.” Read and respond after a quick 30-second setup to the body language of an approaching longbeard cam-actuated body rotation and a full range of fantail positions. Pull the string from your position in cover and the fantail slowly rises as the body simultaneously rotates. Release
