Durable and Shot Resistant
FUDs are made from neoprene, this makes them extremely buoyant and durable.
This lightweight material allows the FUD to take a few shots and will still be usable
Portable and Versatile
- FUDs are easy to carry and store.
- Use them in water or in the field
- Carry up to 12 Decoys in one hand using the FUDslinger (included)
Fold Up Decoys are the first in class to create multiposture capabilities.
These rivets act as a pivoting point for the head, keel and for some specials, the tail panel
Bird Vision Certified
FUDs are made from Birdvision UV decoy paints. The certified UV paint mimics and matches the feathers of real birds which makes the perfect decoy!
Chaining is the process of joining decoys into a line similar to that used with layout boats. FUDs make chaining a much easier task with each decoy having rigging that is stored inside, having anchors that are flat, and pedestals that will easily accept the anchor of the next decoy.
Game birds are widely respected for having great vision. They can detect full colour as well as ultra-violet light, but they have one handicap. Unlike hunters with eyes in front game bird eyes are on each side of their head leaving them with little depth perception. Consequently as long a decoy's shape, tone, posture and shadow are all correct the decoy will work and in the simplest of terms the larger the decoy is the further out it will be seen. This becomes important when hunting in company with competing spreads. With all things equal other than size the hunter with the bigger sized decoys typically produces the best harvest results.
FUD decoys have been designed to a specific formula that only produces magnum size decoys. All FUDs are a minimum of 10% larger than real life and this magnum ratio has been maintained across the entire FUD range.
FUDs forward a completely different approach to anchors, rigging, transport and storage when compared to old fashion decoys.
FUDs take the task of decoy transport and rigging use to new levels of functionality. FUDs are carried on "Fudslinger" belt hooks hands-free rather than hauled in and out on the hunter's back in bags or dragged in punts. Better still the FUD stores the rigging inside the product where it cannot tangle with other decoys. Finally there is a decoy that eliminates string tangle.
FUD anchors are deliberately manufactured flat to allow them to easily store inside the body of the collapsed decoy. FUD pedestals have a notch on top of the foot that the final 1" or 2" of anchor string is looped over. Once looped and the pedestal is pulled up through the back of the decoy for hanging on the Fudslinger, this locks the anchor in place as it cannot move up to disengage the string out of that notch. As long as the decoys are carried in a vertical manner such as a Fudslinger then anchor string will not untangle.
