The invention presents the perfect outward semblance oí a most peaceable and amiable cow, but the fore legs and hind legs are in fact the two pairs of legs of two men. tahey are armed with guns and have a plentiful supply of ammunition. The patent cow moves along like an ordinary harmless animal nntil it is in the inidst of a lot of birds, when it comes open and the two men inside blaze away. Formed in the sides of the frame, at snitable points, are Windows or openings protected by outward swinging flap blinds, and through these windows the sportsman in the rear rnay discharge bis fowling piece when the game has been successfully stalked. For the flring of the hunter in the front of the decoy there is provided a downward swinging portion, which includes the head and neck of the animal, so that by simply releasing a small catch from the inside of the framework this releases the swinging front portiou, which immediately drops by gravity and thns leaves the sportsman free.
