TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

An HD game bird decoy designed to maximise your chances of attracting woodpigeons

This plastic model is the first shell decoy of a woodpigeon entirely designed by our teams. At Solognac, our aim for game bird shooting is to facilitate encounters between shooter and woodpigeon: this means reducing the distance between bird and enthusiast. The realistic colours, dimensions and position of this plastic model therefore play a key role in your ability to attract these game birds.

The steps required to design Solognac's first game bird decoy

This decoy required several months of development. It all began with the work of a wood carver who brought the first prototype to life. 3D modelling was then carried out, along with various adjustments to the dimensions and posture, to produce a true-to-life decoy. A series of colorimetry and 3D-texturing phases for the feathers, interspersed with testing in the field, culminated in a decoy with ultra-realistic colouring.

The decoy's realism: an essential factor for any enthusiast of game bird shooting

When shooting woodpigeons in flight, it is essential that the decoys laid out on the ground be as solid, comprehensive and realistic as possible to lure the birds. With this decoy, the flock you lay out (in particular, with beaks pointing into the wind) maximises your chances of attracting them. The paint used mimics the bird's colours as closely as possible, and also withstands deterioration due to sunlight, rain, sand and being rubbed against other decoys when transported, for example.

High-quality paintwork that withstands the elements: highlight of this decoy

In a wheat, corn or rapeseed field, this "dummy" is devastatingly effective. What accounts for this? In particular, the high-quality paint used together with a flame treatment stage to prolong the life of the product. Knowing that you often use the same decoys from one season to the next, we above all wanted to offer one with durable paint designed to withstand weather conditions, transport and storage.

A versatile decoy: two positions possible with the built-in clip-on stem

When setting off to your shooting position on foot, you are often carrying a lot of gear: gun, hide, carry bag, etc. It is not uncommon when shooting woodpigeons to carry 15, 20, 30 or more decoys. As such, our new model features two holes on the top: you can choose whether the decoy mimics a woodpigeon that is eating or a bird standing up with the built-in stem. A space is provided for this under the decoy (no need to carry the components separately and risk losing the stem).

What about environmentally friendly design?

But that's not all! Throughout the decoy's development process, the environmental impact of its design was a constant factor. Rather than opting for conventional plastic to create this decoy, our engineer was able to reduce its impact. How? Thanks to the use of 100% recycled polyethylene.

How to position your decoys on the ground

Shooters are recommended not to install the game bird decoys at random. 3 main considerations should be taken into account: the direction of the wind, the direction from which the woodpigeons will come in, and where you are stationed. Several decoy patterns are possible, but if conditions are ideal (wind blowing from behind you and the game birds coming head on), then place the decoys 20-25 m from your hide in a broad "U" shape on the ground so that the woodpigeons come in to land in the middle.

Increase your chances of attracting woodpigeons with these tricks

To further increase the realism of your array of decoys, we recommend that you supplement them with our other new 100 shell decoys and mobile decoys positioned facing into the wind (such as hypaflaps or rotating-wing game bird decoys for movement). Finally, wear camo clothes and don't forget your hide! For example, see our shield-shaped hide. These tips will enable you to spot the woodpigeons in the distance slowing down, gliding and coming in to land.

Great product
3d pigeon decoy
Darren (United Kingdom) Used for 1 week or less
Purchased these because they looked very good for detail and colour, unfortuantely when they arrived I was very dissapointed to find out they didn't look like the advertised picture and were quite bland in colour with not a lot of difference in colour shading more washed out I would describe them. Also the paint had started to rub off from just being in transit so obviuosly gave me no confidence they would last any lenght of time. I feel these have been let down by cheap chinese manufacturing process which is a shame as I had high hopes for them. I basically sent them straight back and rather hope decathlon can get on top of the chinese manufacturing as they have the potential to be very good, All in all I can't recommend these at all.
3d pigeon decoy
Darren (United Kingdom)
Purchased these on the basis they looked brilliant colourful and realistic, unfortunately what I received was nothing like the pictures. Basically no colour very bland grey cheaply made in china item which the minimal paint there was had started to scratch off the decoys just during transit. Sent straight back for refund. Really dissapointed what has the potential to be a fantastic decoy seriously let down by cheap chinese manufacturing, shame I certainly can't recommend these I hope decathlon get on top of this and start supplying what they are advertising as at the moment they are nothing like the pictures.
