The DSD Strutter is a boss gobbler magnet. He will work on hard headed, henned up birds when nothing else will. Just set him with one or more of our hen decoys in plain sight of that longbeard that’s been eluding you and get ready for the show. If you’ve never watched a gobbler make a dead run across a field to attack a decoy then you should give the Strutter a try. Dress him up with a real tail fan and beard for the most realistic turkey decoy the world has ever seen.
Like all our turkey decoys, the Strutter is made out of our legendary A.C.E. Technology which means that he is built to take a beating (which is a good thing, cause he gets beat up A LOT). There is no inflation required, so his rugged body will always hold its natural shape. He can even withstand an accidental shotgun blast or broadhead through the body with only minimal damage. Made in the U.S.A.
*This decoy does require the addition of a real tail fan which is not included. Beard is optional, and also not included. Decoy bag pattern may vary.
Includes: (1) Strutter, (1) Strutter Turkey Stake, and (1) Camo Bag with Shoulder Strap
Decoy Weight (with bag and stake): 9lbs
Saw this at Cabelas and wow, the competitor full strut decoys don’t even compare. I am a bit concerned about the weight and bulky size of this one though. For the longer walk ins I will stick to the Jake decoy but this this is truly amazing in realism.

This thing is amazing its been a total game changer for me on tough hard to kill mature gobblers i used it to kill a turkey in 5 different states last season and cant wait to put it to use this year
I have owned the strutter for three years now. It can be a powerful decoy option, alone or with other DSD’s. With the addition of a real fan, wings and beard, I cant tell it from a real bird. To add the last bit of realism, I tie fishing line to each side of the fan and I can make it turn on command. It is just too much for a big tom to handle. We killed 7 birds with this setup last year, three in one set 15 minutes apart.

This decoy has been a real game changer for me. I have shot my biggest toms over this decoy, and is unbelievably realistic. I would highly recommend this decoy along with all of Dave Smiths turkey decoys. They are a little heavy and awkward for carrying but are well worth the effort. I got rid of over 20 different turkey decoys that I owned and only use the best now, which are Dave Smith decoys. I have each one of Dave Smith decoys and they have all worked great for me.

I have hunted Easterns in Alabama all my life and like everyone, have seen the old tom hangup at 80 yards. We used the DSD Strutter on one of these tough birds south of Montgomery, Alabama and had him commit. 1 1/4 spurs and the best bird to date for my friend who was fortunate enough to be holding the gun. It is a larger decoy so just be aware if you are attempting a run & gun concept. But highly recommend using this for those old tough birds!
Courtney Miller –
This is by far the most realistic turkey decoy I’ve ever seen or owned. The details are AMAZING! The only negative is how bulky and heavy it is. I had such a hard time lugging this guy, my DSD hen, blind, bow, etc. last year. If you’re going with a hunting buddy that can help carry the load then it’s great, or for not far distances…. Very well made!

I have hunted with turkey decoys since they became available with intermittent success however, since using Dave Smith Decoys, [ i have everyone except the mating pair, which iam ordering tomorrow] i have killed a longbeard turkey every single year since they became available. Iam not a rich t.v. hunter. I only hunt in Pennsylvania.with my wife who has killed a turkey 10 years straight. I contribute our success in large part to the excellent quality and realism of Dave Smith Decoys. There is nothing on the market better or even close. They are also an outstanding company to do business with and they are doing their part to ” MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Thank you and all of your employees.
Bennett Boggess –
I bought the full strut decoy last season and had the best season of my life! My brother and I killed 2 old Rios over the strutter in Texas and had a great hunt in AZ. Can’t wait to get him back in the woods this season!
Tom Staples –
They are hands down the best looking and most durable decoy on the market. I’ve been using them for many years now and I can honestly say, I’ve never use another decoy again.
Rodney Bass –
The most realistic decoys on the market!!!
Craig Young –
Simply the most realistic strutter decoy on the market! I have had this decoy along with several others since DSD came out with turkey decoys, and I can say for a fact that the realism of the DSD line of turkey decoys has made a HUGE difference in the way that these Georgia toms have reacted to my decoy sets. Where other brand decoys have failed, DSD has greatly increase my overall kill success and my shear number of turkey to decoy interactions!
Brett Woolley –
Best decoys on the market hands down
Graig brooks –
I bought this decoy instead of getting a full mount. It looks more real than if I would have had it mounted.
Lucas Ruff –
If your wanting go after truly dominate am aggressive birds then the DSD Strutter is what you’ll want in your arsenal!
Trevor M –
My wife, who was 8 months pregnant at the time, shot her first longbeard with her bow over this decoy. Meanwhile the tom was beating the snot out of it! I’ve had numerous gobblers come into this decoy and take care of business! Out of the 7 DSD’s I own, this decoy is definitely one of the best on the market!
Chad Luthringer –
The most realistic and effective Tom decoy I’ve used . Fools the wiliest eastern open field toms every time . Toms rush in to fight and hens hesitate to leave when attracted in , often pulling in there strutter . Stands up to high winds and hard rain or snow . Quality product like no other .
Jarrett Barnes –
Most realistic decoy on the market PERIOD! I was afraid that someone would mistake it for the real thing. Details definitely make a digestive when your hunting old birds and I haven’t seen one turn it down yet. Absolutely great!
Matt F. –
The most realistic strutter decoy on the market. Very good quality as well. The only problem that I had was the decoy was sent to me without a stake or a hole for the beard.
Easily the best looking and effective turkey decoy on the market in my opinion. Only problem I’ve had is the hole where the stake goes in tore and also on slots for wings other then that it’s my go to decoy
Tyler Beardslee –
Hands down the most realistic decoy on the market. Extremely durable and well made and with the many customization options it’s a must own. This is the best tool one could have to fool even the most educated and dominant birds. DSD are the best and this product is a true testament of that.
Kyle Goracke –
This big guy is great for that dominant bird that is looking for a fight. If you want that 3 year old to come in spitting and drumming.. this is your decoy.
Gary Johnson –
I borrowed this tom, two hens and a Jake decoy from a good friend and could not believe what I experienced. To start off the morning I had two Jake’s run in and proceed to attack the Jake and Tom for over 7 minutes. Once they moved on and I had snuck out to straighten the decoys back up, I watched as I called in a tom from over 500 yards. He was not able to see the decoys until the last 100 yards but you could definitely see his body language change once he did. He matched right to this Tom and I was able to arrow him before the ” fight” broke out. I captured the whole morning on video and was able to show my friends how well they worked. I’ve used many decoy setups to hunt turkeys, but I’ve never witnessed this type of reaction before. Amazing realism very durable, I strongly recommend these decoys.
Jason Breining –
Hands down the best decoys I have ever used. The ability of these decoys to bring birds close and hold their attention is unmatched!
John Heiney –
This is the most realistic tom on the market! Save your money on taking a mount to the field with you, because this is better, and no repairs after it gets pulverized by your prized trophy. Buy it, you won’t regret it!
Hands down best looking and realistic decoy on the market! Easy setup, extremely durable, and draws the fight.
Dillon Steuck –
most realistic and most durable stutter decoy by a long shot! Either birds come in spittin and drumming to strut along his side, or they’re looking for a show down.
Caleb Orr –
I have had a strutter for about 3 years now and it is hands down the best turkey decoy I have ever owned. I’ve killed easily 20 gobblers over it keep up the good work
Brandon Williams –
This decoy is the best on the market. It helped me kill 3 highly pressured birds in Wisconsin last year as well as helped me get my girlfriend her first turkey. My first bird of the year I had a buddy run the decoy laying in the field with it where we knew their was a trio of birds. I have never seen 3 Toms come in so fast in all my years of hunting and the look on my buddies face was awesome. He was about to get up and run as they closed the distance (200 yards) fast looking for a fight to win over the hen decoys. Looking forward to 2018 and more expierences like that. Keep doing what your doing cause it works, and works extremely well. Thanks DSD!

Been in love with this decoy for a few years and finally bought him for the 2017 season. Man is he beautiful… number one fell to this strutter at the hands of my 10 year old son by 6:55 am the opening morning of the Tennessee juvenile season in 2017.
My second bird was fooled by him on an early morning set up as well !! Love these decoys
Nathan Coffey –
The most realistic turkey decoy on the market today!
Mark Jenkins –
After owning another brand and having numerous issues DSD’s are are breath of fresh “AIR” no inflating, Made In America pride as well as craftsmanship. I am proudly a lifetime DSD consumer now. The attention to detail on each decoy is second to none also if a stray pellet hits the decoys no harm is done and you aren’t left flat in the field. Carry bags are also well constructed for years of use. The Strutter is so well designed it could pass for a mounted bird, simply no other decoy on the market appears so real.
Korey O’Day –
Most realistic and durable decoy on the market. Worth every penny.
Aaron Ohl –
Most realistic decoy I’ve ever used! Set this Strutter up in a frequently used field and you won’t even have to call. Toms can’t resist a fight with this setup.
Dave Nelsom –
I have been using this strutter for 3 seasons now and I will not go to the turkey woods without it. Every single bird has been shot at 15 yards or less standing right over the decoy, even on nasty cold spring days when birds are negative it draws their interest. If you are a serious turkey hunter and don’t have this decoy you are missing out!
Trace Koble –
First off, I would like to say that this is the BEST strutter decoy on the market. The realistic paint scheme and carving is what makes it what it is. If there were any issues or downfalls to this decoy it would be that it is heavy to carry without the bag (Fan/ Wings attached) on the stake. If possible I would like to see a hard case for the fan at the least because the wings are not a necessity. This would keep my fans from getting torn up from transport and allow me to carry the decoy into the field with the bag provided. Thank you for a great decoy and great customer service!
Mike Skinner –
I have shot several gobblers off the back of this strutter and the pellet holes just close up. You can hear them rattle a little inside, but no visual effect. Great decoy. Worth the money.
Randy franks –
Absolutely the best decoys i ever used they speak for there self !!????
Greg Friedrich –
I’ve had my strutter for over 6 years now and it still looks new. Looks like a stuffer but better because it isn’t fragile. Almost every Tom that sees this decoy comes running into my spread. This decoy matched up with the DSD hens is a deadly combo!
Colton Schmidt –
Hands down the best gobbler decoy ever made. DSD continues to change the hunting industry year by year.
DAVID Van Epps –
Great looking decoy! Had a guy bring one out here in Oregon. We tried him 4 times and every time the birds shyed away. Not saying it won’t work just didn’t for the birds I hunt!
Charles DuBray –
I have never seen a decoy take a beating like the strutter. you add a movement and you got solid gold the other toms just cant take it and come right on in.
Have pulled birds across 2 fences and a creek just to come bust this decoy up! Results are always positive when this decoy is in spread.
So real if you happen to take an accidental nap and wake up you will jump thinking a Tom has come in!
Zachary bower –
Best decoy on the market. If you don’t use these ur missing out I have the Jake the strutter and two hens and wouldn’t buy anything else. The realism is crazy. Don’t fall asleep because when u wake u will want till kill your decoys
Ryan C –
Dave Smith Decoys absolutely changed the game with their DSD Strutter! The most life-like decoy on the market and well worth the price. I used the DSD Strutter to knock down my first longbeard five years ago and haven’t looked back since.
Best strutter on the market. Killed my first gobbler with a bow at 4 steps.
Dalton Gooch –
The realism in the decoy is by far the best in any decoy I have ever seen or owned , no other decoy company has a strutter comparable once you use and see DSD decoys , by far the only decoys I will ever buy again !!!!
The best decoys I’ve ever seen. Looks real anytime you look at them while they are out. Unbelievable!
John R. –
I’ve used a strutter and hen decoy for several years. I rarely hunt without them. The realism of these decoys is second to none.
Sean de Haan –
Don’t forget what the real bird is. You can’t eat your decoy.
Chad Gilbert –
Strutter was a game changer. I bought it several years ago and I wouldn’t be caught in the woods without one. I’m a guide and outfitter I own the whole line of turkey decoys. Can’t wait to use the mating pair this season.
Steve Terry –
This decoy is awesome looking, just like the real thing. This thing is awesome when your really wanting to pull in a stud Tom. The jakes tend to be a little weary guess they aren’t really looking for an A$$ whoopin.
Ive had the strutter for 3 years. Its realism is totally unmatched with other decoy options available. It seams to me early in the season if if u add movement it will bring in almost every tom i have had a couple before i added movement come in to 80 yards and hang up i recomend putting some movement. It is a little bulky to carry especially with a blind, but its effectiveness in the field definatly out weighs the wheight n size of the decoy. The wings do make this decoy look amazing i have just as good of luck without them if im running and gunning. I recommend this product i also have the upright hen work great togeather n plan to own all of them at sum point in my hunting career. hope this helps good luck this spring

This decoy has been the biggest single handed change to our success rate from 4 to 5 trips per bird to 2 or less trips per bird. If you can get this decoy in front of a mature gobbler and remain hidden 9 times out of 10 he will come with in range to this decoy. Now the only draw back to it is a jake or non dominate bird will be timid of it at times. I have held this decoy in my hand and “fanned” over a dozen birds to with 5 yards. (Merriams and Easterns) it is a little bit heavy. I will take the weight to have the quality. My only wish is for a good comfortable back style bag maybe with a extra pocket or 3 on it. The carrying bag can be a little awkward on long walks.
Charlie Stevens –
I have used this decoy since they came out and will not use anything else! All the turkey decoys that I own are DS!
Brad Deshields –
This is my go to of all the dad decoys for that dominant bird. I mainly use the dsd Jake and breeding hen but this is a great addition to your arsenal. These decoys have helped numerous first time turkey hunters harvest their first bird. Don’t sacrifice quality over price, these are the best decoys on the market. Can’t wait to try the new Jake decoy.
Jeremie Schulz –
By far the most best decoy I have ever used. Have killed a lot of birds over this decoy. Great tool to use to get the most dominate birds to commit.
Dwayne Hickman –
Bought the DSD strutter at the beginning of last season. Every tom that has seen it has not lived to tell! I’ve yet to have one shy away or leave. After putting a real fan and wings on it, its the most realistic decoy on the market!! Very impressed!
Buddy of mine has this decoy and it looks super lifelike! Great looking turkey that is a great buy! I’ll be getting one soon!
