The best looking, most lifelike standard size decoys we have ever produced... at a value that is second to none! These small mallard floaters have taken a lifetime of experience to develop. XHD Hyper-Feathering uses bright, high-contrast paint and deep, textured carving to create a lifelike feel. Higdon's new forward-weighted keel helps these decoys sit naturally in the water, and feature an innovative new front clip for easy short-stringing. Multiple postures and head positions create a diverse, realistic cluster and makes any spread come to life. These decoys are slightly smaller than average real ducks, making them the smallest, lightweight, packable and affordable decoys in the Higdon lineup. Higdon's highly detailed, proprietary UV painting process and deep realistic carving techniques highlight each individual feather and minimize unnatural glare, even when decoys are wet. Our paint won't peel or fade, so your decoys will look great season after season. Package includes: 2 Upright Drakes, 2 Resting Drakes, and 2 Resting Hens. As a Ducks Unlimited Official Licensed Product, a percentage of your purchase will go toward wetland conservation.

I mostly hunt from a kayak or walk in to small ponds on public land so typically, a dozen decoys is about all I carry with me. Maybe 4 geese floaters to add to the mix. These smaller “standard” size decoys work great together with the “full-size” decoys to make a family group. Nice and small and lightweight too, which is always a plus when kayaking or walking a couple of miles.
As always guys you make a great decoy! Over the last few years my friends and I have probably purchased around 1500 decoys from you. Being 1100 of them foam filled redheads, that we rig on 40ft x 40ft nets. We hunt in the core sound of North Carolina just off the banks of Harkers Island and set 300-500 decoys per net. The mallards are no exception, well made awesome color and can definitely take the beating they get on the side by side, truck bed, and pulled over the side of the boats as well. We also run the pulsators and it's absolutely hard to beat that action! Can't wait to see my new pup retrieve the birds that set their wings to the Higdons!!
