You're heading in the right direction for sure Longbow. I used to carry a TON of decoys out with me, looked like a duck hunter walking through the woods. I have currently gone away from the 12-17 bird setup though, because on the grounds that I am hunting, I just have to set up in a funnel and call them in.Originally posted by Longbow26
I just resently perchased Flambeau Outdoors " Breeding Flock " It comes with 2 feedings hens and one jake uprite, and the solid folding stakes. befor taxes its was 29.99 at dunns sporting goods in pevelly.
I my self have desided that this spring hunt i will be plasing out 5 feeding hens and one uprite hen no jake. Reason being that in 11 years of hunting terkeys 10 of them I have put out jake with a hen. Last year I jsut put out one hen and got my first terky ever.
I did alot of terky waching last spring and this winter time and noticed that when a bunch of terkys are together, most of the times one is looking around and rest are eatting. Thus the bunch of feeding hens in my set. Curently I only own 3 feeding hens, nead to bumm some more monies from wife next month.
Yes, yes, turkey hunting, in theory, and on television IS VERY easy! For the sake of recruiting you as a turkey hunting die-hard, I hope you get lucky and everything comes together perfect for you on day one! :cheers:Originally posted by Nicholas

None of them are the greatest, and all of the flexy/plastic ones are about the same. They're great, and stand up to the conditions great.....FOR A YEAR, and then they tend to fall flat on their face. Some folks on here in the past have talked about re-working these decoys with a hair dryer.
The reason I don't want to use the blow up ones is because I'm not going to take the time to blow them up. When I get to a spot, I want to get set up quick and get set down.
Just go out and get 2 hens and a jake of whatever kind floats your boat. There's just not one that's better than another. You're looking for light weight, durability, compactability, and ones that look pretty decent.
My .02 is don't get caught up on something that looks TOO real cause then you're going to attract hunters and lead too!
Uhmm..Turkey hunting class??...sorry just sounds strange to me..best class is the woods ..but I'm sure it'll be helpfull untill you develope your own methodolgy.Originally posted by Nicholas
Parker, thanks for the info., it sounds as if the bugs may want to get me! I plan on taking a Turkey hunting class at Busch Range in a couple of weeks and hope I learn something, as well as find people to take me out on my initial run. This is all very exciting and I plan on being a die hard!
