Smile Just bought a decoy

I got one that the head and tail move....well, only because that's all they had a Dicks. That sucker was $200!! The wife sure wasn't happy, but I think it's gonna prove to be worth it.

I hope I don't have to wait for her to come into estrus for a year though

Oh well, she'll get over it


On a more serious note, it came with two sets of antlers. Should I go with the big boys or use the little ones?...or does it matter? I'm not interested in anymore basket racks, I've got a basement full of basket racks

Congrats on the new toy. If your wife wants to give it away she can ship it to me. Ive been wanting to buy one for awhile now but havent justified forking out the money for it yet.

Keep me posted on how it works and what antlers worked better for you.

I would think that if your in a "big boys" neighborhood he would not care what kind of buck it is. Big or small he would want to get a closer look and possibly try to kick his butt. Dont take my word for it since Ive never used one. Thats just my 2 cents.

I think I'm gonna put the big ones on just for the simple fact that they may see them better from a distance.
The weather has been sucky this week with all this rain and wind. Tomorrow morning will be my first attempt with the decoy...but I haven't seen ANY bucks this year where they were so abundant last year

I keep telling myself, "it's still early"...another week though and I know it'll be 'on'
