Why We Make Decoys
The Top Down Story
Top Down Decoys was built on family traditions, a love for hunting, and the need for a better, more cost-effective decoy.
CAREFULLY CRAFTED & BUILT TO LAST
While working on their Illinois farm in 2013, the Essarys watched thousands of snow geese fly overhead throughout the day. This migration of snows was the largest they had ever witnessed in the area. Immediately, the family of hunters became obsessed. Decoys were purchased and spread, but limited success followed by reading and research led to an understanding that they needed more decoys! With their expanding knowledge and genuine love of the hunt, the Essarys were inspired to create their own. With the busy, hard-working hunter in mind, they designed a new, horizontal decoy from a bird's-eye view. Top Down Decoys was born.
