After the last few hunts with them I am beginning to wonder as well. They have their last chance in the morning or my new hen decoy might be getting a couple more new mates to run with, the old ones must have lost their mojo.:rotfl:Originally posted by swmo
Those were decoy's we were using Mike???? I was begining to wonder if they weren't Turkey repelent , especially after watching that big OL' tom on sunday of the yout season:bangin:.

don't think there is a perfect set up. i have seen toms run in past every hen decoy and start thumping a jake decoy and i have seen toms hang up with a jake decoy. i have even seen a tom on a dead run towards our set up and stop in his tracks and walk off with a jake out. i have seen toms hang up with hens and nothing more than that. i have seen toms hang up with no decoys. i have also seen toms commit in every set up named and march straight in to their death. just depends on what the birds are wanting in the area. hows that for an answer.
Tony I've done this a number of times and it does work good. Trouble is anymore I have a hard time getting back up after I crawl out there.:horse:Originally posted by huntforfunnfood
when i do it is usually when i catch a tom out in the feild and can't get any closer i will pop my hen up and belly craw out in the feild 10 yards or so to make it look like a hen showed up belly craw back to the edge and call.
this works pretty good if the grass is 10 inches or so.
