Building A Better Goose Decoy

    Gym Shoe Decoy Company is making our imprint on the evolution of EVA plastic goose decoys. We have personally experienced  the inconveniences of owning expensive, heavy, and bulky decoys; so we sought to fix a problem. As a result, we have developed a full body goose decoy with excellent realism that weighs in under 1 lb per decoy. Now with revolutionary EVA PLASTIC, goose decoy spreads are easily deployed, and picked up at a fraction of the time and cost. After all, what waterfowl hunter really wants to pick up decoys after the end of a good or bad hunt. What about if your off the X and your reputation and business might be  hanging on the line based on your success and you know a move needs to be made.

Decoys By Hunters For Hunters

We pride ourselves in being real hunters, not phony salesman.  I can’t tell you how many times we have sat in  layouts knowing immediately, that a move needs to be made. We have all been there. I stopped enjoying picking up decoys at 20 years old. I’ve dreaded  the inevitable pick up and move knowing the time and effort hard, heavy, and bulky decoys require to move and outweighing if it was worth the effort. What about a snow goose wind change. Now we’re talking hundreds of decoys to move.

Make the Move to a Better Decoy

C’mon, we have  all been there. At Gym Shoe Decoy Company we realized a change was needed. Now there is no need to wait for the fields to freeze to transport your decoys! Above all, one hunter can easily carry dozens Gym Shoe Decoys at a time. About 5 dozen on average to be exact.  Whether you are replacing your spread completely, or a hard charging 18 year old starting out, with limited funds, we predict that Gym Shoe Decoys will be part of every hunter’s spread in the very near future. EVA PLASTIC is the future.

Pet Application and Approval Process


Pet policies vary from one homeowner to another. Some owners do not allow pets (other than approved assistance animals) on the property, while others restrict the type and/or size of allowable pets. If you apply for one of our properties and wish to have a pet, you will need to complete an online pet profile & pay a non-refundable pet application fee of $20 for the 1st pet and $15 for the 2nd pet. This screening is part of the Application Package and must be completed before we can review your application. Non-qualifying pets may result in denial of rental application. Visit https://resolutionsxv.petscreening.com/ Note: Current residents or future residents that wish to have a pet after move-in, need to contact our office for owner approval and pay initial pet fee prior to getting a pet. A Pet Agreement needs to be signed within seven (7) days of pet being at the property.

  • No more than two animals are permitted without specific owner approval
  • No Pets under one year of age (no puppies or kittens)
  • No breeding of any animal on the properties
  • Assistance animals with proper documentation will not require the pet screening fee, additional security deposit or additional Pet Rent but will still be required to complete the screening process to verify if it meets the Assistance Animal requirements.
Approved pets will require a one-time Pet Administration Fee in the amount of $50 per animal at move in plus a monthly pet admin fee (Pet Rent) per pet. The amount of the pet rent is determined based upon the “Paw Score” that PetScreening.com assigns to the pet. This score is determined using a proprietary formula that considers things such as pet age, weight, vaccination records, etc. The following are the pet rent amounts:
  • 3-5 Paws: $25/month
  • 0-2 Paws: $50/month
Please note that the following dog breeds are restricted by some landlord insurance policies and may be declined, or you may be required to provide your own pet liability insurance covering the specific dog and naming both our brokerage and the property owner as “additional insured” on the policy:
