Kind of early for this type of question but here it goes.

How many decoys do you use and what are they. (jakes, hens)

1 jake, 2 hens. sometimes i setup without the jake, depends on how the gobblers are reacting to it. sometimes during the season i will usually find some gobblers shy away from the jake decoy.

I normally at least use 1 hen and a jake. This year I'm going to break out King Strut and use 2 hens!

I normally use one or two hens when set up on a field and sometimes Pretty Boy too. If I'm in the woods I normally don't use any.

I hate decoys but when I hunt a field bird I use them. I use a full strut tom and two hens.

I have a strutter (Pretty Boy) and a hen. Used the strutter last year once. I bought a DSD hen to try this year. I never had a real good place to set up with the decoy's. Probably use them more this year.
