Take a look at Wing Supply. They have some cheap decoys in the closeout section. Me and my buddies got some last and there very good for the price. There not D.S.D. but then again what is?

Thats good advise RPD63,

You don't NEED TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY on decoys! Any decoy will work with your help. Get a feeding hen and a jake put them off to one side so you are not directly in the gobblers line of sight when he sees them, and point the jake toward you lf all works well he will turn his back to you so you can shoot if you need that.

I bought the "Killer B" last year; and boy, did it work....the Tom I shot and had mounted came in 'spitting at the decoy...I have never seen that before. He also jumped up and kicked the hell out of "Killer B" not once, but twice before I pulled the trigger! To me, "Killer B" is one of the best out there. Just my 2 cents worth!

Tons of cheap decoys out there. That being said.... I would rather use a SINGLE DSD decoy than an entire flock of cheap ones.

Good luck!

They do have some real good deals. Check in on them from time to time. I have ordered quite a few things from them over the years.

Funny you should say that. I just sent in my order for the up-right hen. Back ordered at Macks Prairie Wings.
