History of Montana Decoy
Created in 1996 by elk hunting enthusiast Jerry McPherson, Montana Decoy got its start from a regular guy trying to improve his hunting. When Jerry found a way to do this, he wanted to share his successful invention with the rest of the bow hunting community and from there the rest is history. The company has since expanded past elk decoys and now makes more than 18 different decoys. The modern day success story is one of true hard work and dedication by Jerry, his family and close friends. Now this soft-spoken hunter from Montana is well known in the hunting community and his products are found in most outdoors shops, both big and small.
Montana Decoy Design
Jerry McPherson's Montana Decoys are a two-dimensional, photo realistic decoy. The body of the decoy is a print of a high-quality photo on a cotton / polyester fabric. This picture is mirrored and printed on the opposite side so that no matter which direction a critter approaches from they will always see the decoy. To keep the material erect, a steel band is sewn in between the two pieces of printed material. This steel band is the key to the decoy being so portable. It allows the decoy to be twisted and folded to a third of its full size. In order to finish the assembly of the decoy, leg poles are provided to hold the unit in position. These poles are inserted into sleeves that have been sewn into the decoy. Set-up and tear-down are simple and fast. To date, all of Jerry's decoys are 2-D, but new designs are in the works. Be prepared to start seeing 3-D Montana Decoys that are still as compact as the original 2-D decoys.
