In Volume 22 Issue 2 of WATERFOWL magazine in 2004. The section "FROM THE DECOY BAG (Gear & Gadgets For The Modern Waterfowler)" by Tom Long. The author has reviewed some of the gear and gadgets in the market. Our decoys is being mentioned under the section Flapp'n Duck on page 54.

Open Zone has introduced a full line of motion decoys that are unique do to their spring-loaded design. The Glide'n Duck is a non-motorized decoy that has the most realistic gliding action due to the wings that are activated by the wind. They come in a package of two and you only need a few of these to add life to your decoy spread since they initiate ducks in flight.

They have also introduced a line of flapping wing decoys with their Landin' Duck and their Flapp'n Duck. These decoys are perfect for placing in a line with the Glide'n Duck first followed by the Landin' Duck and then the Flapp'n Duck decoy. It will give the impression of movement from the air all the way to the water. Check these out and see for yourself at a local dealer or write to Open Zone.

The Equipment annual 2004 issue of WILDFOWL came out in July. The article "Modern Decoys Old Reliables And Modern Adaptation" by Jay Strangis. The author has introduced and reviewed some of the latest decoys in the market. Our decoys is being mentioned under the section OPEN ZONE on page 119.

- BUILDING INNOVATION INTO mechanized decoys, Open Zone has some of the most unique motion ducks on the market, with wings that flap, not spin. The new Landin' Duck is one of the two decoys that operate from a wireless remote control with a range of up to 200 feet. The Landin' duck has the look of a real mallard with feet splayed for landing. The other remote control unit is the Flapp'n Duck, a motorized swimmer that moves in the water when the wings start flapping. Open Zone also offers the Glide'n Duck, a non-motorized decoy with spring mounted, extended wings that move up and down with the slightest breeze.

Published in the May 2004 issue of Alberta Outdoorsmen magazine, "Product Review" section by Steve Chorney.

The first time I used a Flapp'n Duck from OpenZone, I couldn't believe the hyponotic effect it had over northern greenheads. A group of us being muscled south by a slump in an Arctic weather system. Being late October, these birds had already been hammered at all fall and were especially cagey. Moreover, we were hunting big water, which is arguably the most difficult circumstance to decoy mallards, while absolute imbeciles gunning over stubble (most of the time), mallards can best be decribed as paranoid schizophrenics when hunted over H2O. full article

Here is a small paragraph of a recent article in the Sep/Oct 2003 issue of Cabela's Outfitter Journal, "Gaining In The Grain Fields" by Tim Tipton:

"Get down. We got a couple dozen coming in off the refuge," I said. As I peered up from the blind I watched them make one pass and then another, looking for something that would let them know that this was the hot feeding and resting spot. Just then some of Jeff's feeding decoys went into motion, stirring up the water. The Mallard Machine and the Flapp'n Duck decoy, accompanied by Jeff's pleading tones, proved too much. On the third pass, wings locked and the landing gear went down. Steel filled the air as two drakes somersaulted into the water. As the others fought for altitudes, Jeff and Mark let loose and raised the final duck tally.
