You name it, we do everything, ..., 3 Nov 2015 [cached]
You name it, we do everything, said Brian Wolslegel, owner of Custom Robotic Wildlife.
Wolslegel said hunters, nature centers, retail stores and Christmas displays are popular customers and destinations for his items.
Hes even had an Animal Planet show that met limited success.
It was called To Catch a Poacher, Wolslegel said.
NATIONAL POST, 5 Mar 2003 [cached]
Brian Wolslegel, president of Custom Robotic Wildlife, with one of his company's decoy deer.
Brian Wolslegel, president of Custom Robotic Wildlife in Mosinee, Wis., is familiar with Owens.
Wolslegel is quick to tell me that while a deer that size would be a trophy deer in Mosinee, in Canada a buck would have to be over 200 pounds to be considered a trophy.
Underneath the extra-large standing whitetail deer in Wolslegel's catalogue is another deer decoy named Stomper.It comes complete with robotic stomping leg, tail and head, and costs US$1,500, plus packing and shipping.Bears, turkeys, foxes, elk, moose and mountain lions are also for sale.
"The frame for the decoys is made out of polyurethane and foam," explains Wolslegel, "almost like an insulation Styrofoam.And the eyes [of the deer decoys] have reflective paint on them to make them glow in the dark.But there are other things we make, like road eyes."
"The conservation officer or warden places the road eyes on a corner or curve or near some type of road sign," explains Wolslegel, "and when the shutter is opened and the car lights hit it, it looks like a pair of eyes."
Then when the driver pulls up to the sign or the place where the road eyes are, the shutter can be shut so the driver can't see the eyes, but the deer decoy will be placed 20 yards away, giving the impression that the deer moved from where the driver first saw it.
Snug inside the neck of the deer decoys are motors that make the head, leg and tail move.They are the same motors used in children's toy airplanes and cars, and can be operated by remote control from up to half a mile away.The motors run on AA batteries, usually a dozen.
"But sometimes we run into problems in Canada," says Wolslegel."Because of the cold temperatures the batteries will freeze up, so we have to use a bigger battery pack or a lantern battery."
Wolslegel says he's been making his decoys for the last 10 years.One of the only suppliers in the world, he says business is booming, and not just in Canada and the United States.He's had calls from Argentina to see if he can make red deer decoys, and from South Africa for gazelle decoys.
Citrus: Turkey surprise, 30 Nov 2002 [cached]
Brian Wolslegel, the founder of Custom Robotic Wildlife, is a classically trained taxidermist who began experimenting with remote-controlled robotics in decoys several years ago.
Wolslegel finds these new niches by scouring the trade shows and talking to game wardens.Then, using lightweight foam bodies and real fur and feathers, he builds them.
"The turkeys have become a huge thing," he says.

The owner of Custom Robotic, Brian Wolslegel, who supplies police across the country with decoys, says that the average robotic WED can haul in about $30,000 in fines over its life span (about five years). The $4,000 contraption is even backed by a warranty. "We guarantee everything will look good for one year," Wolslegel says.
