    Default "IVAN" Bird Boy Mannequin

    I've been to a couple of field trials where they used a mannequin at the flyer station. I've been told that these are referred to as "IVANS" but no one seems to know where to buy them. I'd apprecite knowing where folks have found these for sale.

    Thanks

    Crazy Ivans - Military targets - normally 1/2 or 3/4 body on a stake. I would guest a good Surplus store or a gun show.

    They are fairly large and heavy.

    rufsea, that link isn't working. Can you check to see if that's right? Not getting anything via Google.
