Lone Howler Coyote Decoy Looks Real
"It has unbelievable realism," says Zack Rednour, marketing coordinator for Flambeau, a manufacturer of products for hunters and fishermen. Wildlife sculptor Charlie Norton sculpted a life-size coyote to create the mold for Lone Howler, and the plastic bodies are realistically painted. A faux fur tail blows in the wind.
Besides looking realistic, the decoy can sound and smell like a coyote. Scent pads and an electronic predator call (sold by Flambeau) can be placed on the right, rear leg to lure in other coyotes.
"Coyotes are very territorial, and the Lone Howler, coupled with prey calls, draws them in," Rednour says. "The Lone Howler also works as a distraction to give the hunter time to get into a shooting position."
The Lone Howler is lightweight, but stable with a bungee leg locking system, which allows it to be positioned standing, sitting or laying down. The legs can be folded and secured for easy transport.
The Lone Howler sells for $99.99 and is available through Flambeau's website or through nationwide dealers. Dealership inquiries welcome.
