When I first saw the Porkchop Hog Decoy by Boar Down my very first thought was “That is genius!” As hunters, we use decoys for just about every other animal and there was a need for hog decoys too! I had to have one of the “first and only 3-D hog decoys” on the market today.
Feral hogs feel more secure about approaching an area if there is already a hog there. The Porkchop hog decoy was designed to give hogs the confidence to approach and can be a huge advantage in both hunting and trapping of hogs. Boar Down has put much research and design into the Porkchop hog decoy in order to produce a quality, lifelike product to lure in feral hogs. The body of the decoy is made of 12-mill foam with taxidermy quality eyes giving the decoy a lifelike design. The coloring and hair pattern of the coat creates a very realistic look. The decoy is the size of a young hog making the decoy perfect for bringing in mature boars but not too large to intimidate a young group of hogs.
The decoy is secured into the ground with a two-piece metal stake secured by a wing nut in the middle of the decoys back making it easy to set-up in the field. The middle stake design allows the decoy to make non-aggressive movement by wind. The decoy is very light and easily folds down for stowing and transporting in the field.
I cannot wait for the opportunity to hog hunt with this decoy this summer. It is definitely essential gear for hog hunting that I never knew I was missing and I won’t be without it on my next hog hunt. Stay tuned for an update from the field on the success of this great decoy!
