The bodies are made of a soft natural-feel foam with free
swinging hard plastic head and feet and a natural dead bird
weight. Encourages a proper pick up and hold while discouraging the
shaking of birds. Dokken Dead Fowl Trainers float even when punctured and
training scents may be injected directly into the body for added realism.
Weighs approximately 8.8 oz and is 10 1/2 inches long.
To internally scent your Dead Fowl Trainer: Inject the training scent into the middle of the foam duck body in six different locations using the Dokken's Dead Fowl Scent Injector or a syringe (not provided). The foam body is designed to hold the training scent whether using the dummy in or out of the water. 1/2 to 3/4 ounce of training scent is sufficient.
How to Deodorize Your Dokken Deadfowl Trainer:
Mix 1 qt. 3% hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda, a squirt dish soap, and enough warm water to cover your dummy (up to a 1/2 gallon if needed). Soak dummy overnight and rinse off the next day. Set out in the sun to dry.
This dummy is good....only problem is when I got my first one and fired it the first time the head came off. Gun Dog Supply sent me another (this is a great company!)....same thing on the second one. Good for water training.

"First one lost it's head on the second launch, but was promptly replaced by gundogsupply.com."
With the first launch off the Lucky Launcher, (using the yellow loads), the head of this duck blew clear off. I will be returning it. Currently undecided if I will want a new one or just a refund (for reasons below.)
This bird FLIES much faster and further than the canvas bumpers. The color of this bird makes it difficult to mark - especially if it goes up high above the treeline - it gets lost in the sky. When it lands, it takes a few good bounces. While that might be good for getting the dog's attention, it is not so realistic. I have never seen a dead bird bounce the way this one does when used in the launcher!

"works fine but both legs and the head have fallen off"
For as much as it costs I thought this would be a durable product. But after its 5th shot the head came flying off in mid air. This is just one of the original dummy\'s with the bottom cut off and a metal piece inserted in it. It has good weight to it but just not made strong enough for shooting off of a launcher.
