How many of you guys are guilty of putting the sneak on somebodys decoy set up? Ive done it and had it done to me also. I make it a point to bring my binos with me now and hardly ever bring the dekes along. My buddy got to watch me go into ninja mode on my 300 yd sneak towards him. He got a kick out of it and reminds me about it every time it crosses his mind.

I had some guys sneak up on a waterfowl set-up one day, they didn't catch on until after they had shot and the birds didn't fly off.

Never. But I have been daydreaming and look out and see MY OWN DECOY and come to full alert, thinking that the real deal had gotten in on me without me noticing! This usually happens late morning when the edge has been dulled on the senses. LOL

Never heard of anyone advise against it. Might be good advise on public land, but seems a little paranoid on private land. IMO its a shame that we even have to worry about some idiot blasting us while we are in the turkey woods. Somebody gets shot every year and its just senseless.

Read the TWRA reg book, every year they usually put in there to NOT sneak turkeys. 1.) it is almost impossible, 2.) it is extremely dangerous.

With the goons posing as hunters anymore, we cannot be too careful. A load of #5's to the face at 50 yards will more then likely leave you blind at best.

My question is why? Why run the risk? Why not learn to call, setup, and play the game as it is supposed to be played?

Is it worth it?

Wow, talk about a can of worms.

Setterman,
So you have never moved closer to a gobbling bird after your initial set up?

Play the game as it is supposed to be played ?

I am yet to see that playbook.



If you can play the sneaky sneak on a turkey and pull it off, in my opinion you have done more than just call and deer hunt a bird.
Don't get me wrong either way takes skill, paitience and woodsmanship but I will take either way on any given day.
But please don't imply that ANYONE is "less" of a turkey hunter ie: "learn to call, setup" because they like to chase a bird.
Don't fly in my opinion.

Usually after the first weekend in Ky calling is useless. We stalk em every year to get our limit. Just another technique.

I had a guy walk up on my setup at fort campbell last year. He was trying to stalk with a bow. Now that is hard to do.

i do whatever it takes it is all fun

one time i was crawling on the ground trying to get to a bird when a few of my cows come walking through so i got up keeping the cows between me and the turkey and slowly walked with the cows and it worked i got that bird it was about 35 yards

that is the only time the cows actually helped me out most of the time they run off the birds or come up to my decoys and knock them over

turkeys dont know how many feet a cow has

Happend to me and my brother last year! After a hour and a half and a 400 yard stalk we found out it was a decoy! You would think it would finally click why ain't that bird moving! lol!

We started carrying binos after that!

It has nothing to do with me not agreeing with how someone hunts. We are out there to kill them, period. However, just take a deep breath and think about what you all are talking about.

Ruger, relocating on a gobbling bird, is a vast stretch from crawling up on a decoy set-up.

I hope no one ever gets shot sneaking dekes, I really do. IMO it is a hazard which could be avoided.

So, how did the cow react when you shot off of its back \:D ?


Ditto on being startled by my own decoy a few times. That's when you look around to make sure no one saw you jump \:D !

I apologize, I took your post as that you were saying if you snuck up on a LIVE bird, you weren't as good a hunter as someone that called one up.

I may sneak up on a decoy this coming opening day but if I do it will be the first time.
Yes I have seen decoy's out before and just about peed myself but a little looking through some binoculars will tell you quick that it isn't a live bird.
In the first place as soon as I see a bird before I do ANYTHING I watch to see which direction they are traveling, NOT what direction they are looking. I have seen birds literally doing figure 8's, but after watching them for a few minutes you can figure out which direction they are headed.
I promise you they are going SOMEWHERE, it just might take you a few minutes to figure out what that direction is. ;\)


That keeps me from moving on a decoy and keeps me from getting shot or messing up someone else's set up.
Someone that intentionally busts through a set up, well, I hope nobody gets shot either.

Like others have said, this can be dangerous. I have a buddy who almost got shot on Catoosa a couple of years back when a guy came in from the opposite direction on a gobbler he was working.

Of course, he was coming to the gobbling and not dekes, but the same thing applies. The guy used a little drain to slip within range of the gobbler. What he didn't know was that my buddy was on the other side of the bird. He didn't get hit, but the shot hit all around him. Scared the crap out of him as he had no idea the guy was anywhere around.

Very mad, after the fact, but more shook up right when it occurred. I think he yelled when he got his senses, but the other guy must have freaked, and ran off.

But, it was public land, and the guy had made a move on a gobbling bird, and probably had no idea my buddy was there as he hadn't called much and they were deep in the woods and could have came in from different directions.

A former hunting buddy went to sleep and when he woke up there before him was a gobbler. He shot and had forgotten that he had set up his decoy before the nap. Made the mistake of telling his wife and she told EVERYONE. Stopped hunting with him when he stalked ME one morning.

I've set up first thing in the morning on a field only to have the birds go the other way. So I start off "running and gunning" and leave my decoys in the field. After 3 hours or so I come walking back out on the edge of the field I started at in the morning and ALMOST started a sneak on my own decoy!!

That pretty boy is realistic with a real fan, but I don't like toting him around too much!

If I cant out smart the turkey then he gets to live another day. I dont try to sneak up on turkey because of a hunting accident back in 92 when my brother got pelted in the back of the head. He was ok after getting his head shaved and the pellets removed. Its just not safe. Also I have walked up on many gobblers before and not shot at them because to me I hadnt accomplished anything. Just stumbled upon them.

Same with me, every year it seems I stumble into one or more longbeards and made the choice 10 or so years ago to let em slide. I love killing gobblers, but the way I get to the kill is as important as the killing, but that is just me.
