PRADCO Outdoor Brands acquired Carry-Lite Hunting Decoys and Accessories, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
In business since 1924, Carry-Lite Decoys is the oldest decoy manufacturer in the world. The patented, world-famous Carry-Lite Aqua-Keel design was the first self-ballasting water keel for duck decoys. Carry-Lite Decoys expanded its line in 1994 to include the Easy-Fold Turkey decoy constructed of a durable rubberized material, and in 2005 added the popular Pretty Boy and Pretty Girl turkey decoy system. The mature tom turkey decoy and his submissive hen created a trend that is in full swing in the turkey hunting industry.
Carry-Lite Decoys continued the trend in 2010 with the launch of a unique turkey decoy, Pretty Boy Junior, a semi-strutting jake. Remaining dedicated to the waterfowl market, Carry-Lite recently joined with the wildly popular Duck Commander to produce extremely lifelike Duck Commander duck decoys.
Carry-Lite Decoys was the first to mold plastic decoys, to make full-body geese with legs, to make a one-piece goose shell decoy, to put legs on various decoys, and to put patches on Canada goose decoys.
Carry-Lite Decoys are the most detailed and realistic, because they are hand-painted and designed by avid hunters.
