Port Clinton, OH (December 18, 2015) – Hens play the ultimate roles in determining spring gobbler behavior and, ultimately, spring turkey hunting success. From the first gobbling of the breeding season through the very end of the nesting period, toms are constantly on the lookout for receptive hens.

Like males of the human species, gobblers aren’t mind readers. Even the most macho sometimes needs an obvious sign. In the turkey world, a hen simply can’t convey her receptiveness to suitors any more clearly than by laying down. Bow-chicka-bow-wow.

New for 2016, the Avian-X LCD Laydown Hen provides turkey hunters with a powerful and convincing tool to help lead that lovesick gobbler in on a string. Depending on the circumstances, it can be used on its own, adjacent to, or in a simulated breeding position with an Avian-X LCD Jake or undersized LCD Strutter. The LCD Laydown Hen also excels during late morning and mid-day hunts by accurately simulating a dusting hen.

The Avian-X LCD Laydown Hen starts with an ultra realistic, soft and quiet Dura-Rubber body. Unmatched detail comes from deeply textured and highly intricate feather lines. The realistic body form, high head and wing positions of the LCD Laydown Hen simulates the true breeding position of a hen turkey. She is squatting for the mating ritual and displaying to incoming gobblers that she is 100% receptive. It’s finished off in incredible detail with the best no-flake paint job in the industry, ensuring that this good-looking girl will remain that way for many seasons to come. A drawstring bag is provided for safe and easy transport to and from the field.

It’s the details that count. Avian-X has built its reputation on designing and manufacturing the most convincing and realistic decoys available today, and its LCD line of hen turkey decoys is renown for combining natural poses with lifelike detail to instill the utmost confidence – in both the hunter and approaching birds.

Some things just can’t be ignored. To put it mildly, a hen turkey that’s laying down is cause for enthusiastic investigation by any passing gobbler. The Laydown is just another way Avian-X helps hunters simulate the most realistic poses and tell the whole story in their turkey decoys. Hunt with a new Avian-X LCD Laydown Hen this season and see for yourself.
