Just wondering how many of you out there use or have used deer decoys to assist in deer hunting. I have read many articles on using them and have also used them myself. Two years ago I made my first bow kill using a doe decoy taking a 7 point buck. In experimenting with them I have seen both extremes...bringing deer charging in to the decoy and also spooking deer. Even though when the deer eventually spook, it does seem to spark their curiosity and bring them closer or into in an area where they may not have come without the decoy. I have only used the doe decoy exclusively but this year I am going to put the rack on it to see what kind of action it brings with the bucks. Interestingly, I have had more curious does come into the decoy than I have bucks. Over the past few years I have used a Riverbottom Buck decoy, which is a 3D shooting target. I break it down and carry it to the woods in a duck decoy bag and assemble in the woods. This year I am going to try to go to the lighter weight fold out decoys and use multiple decoys to imitate a group of deer. Let us know of any experiences you have had with decoying deer, anything we can do to get one step closer to them should increase our success.
