Harvested nice 140ish 9pt few yrs ago with bedding doe decoy. i rattled, he circled down wind.he was 20 yards from her, i popped him from 15yards. Greatest hunt to date. also the decoy head comes off..its great for stalking..young deer hop right over to me. just be behind a tree when u draw. works every time! i havent yet had a bad hunt with a decoy but never used one with a mature deer outside the rut either. whats ur guys thoughts on decoys?
