Matt Winters’ Brain Child
The White Faced Strutter is the brain child of Matt Winters (Kansas Premier Outfitters). After studying bird behavior for years, he approached us about doing a custom white headed strutter decoy. He noticed that often, right before breeding, a toms head color would change to white. While the tom was focused on breeding, other gobblers would run in and try to get a piece of the action. We agreed to at least create a couple for product testing, but we couldn’t believe the results.
In the first year of hunting over this decoy, Matt shot 72 toms with his clients. The amazing part was, it wasn’t only dominant toms that felt comfortable running in. Dominant, subordinate and even jake gobblers felt would sprint towards the decoy all because the head color now gave them the message that there was a hen nearby ready to breed and this tom was more interested in making love than picking a fight with them. After two years of product testing, we are excited to officially add the White Face Strutter into our decoy line.
