I would say probably 25% of mine have involved a decoy of some sort. Usually a single hen when im in an area where a turkey could see my setup from farther than i could shoot him (field turkeys usually). Ive killed a couple over a strutter deak and seen a couple more killed over them.

I think they are effective at times, but not needed most of the time and very overrated in price and appearance.

They may work at times, but I have heard horror stories of gobblers sprinting away from full strut decoys. I have never used a strutter, and that is the reason. It aint worth scaring one to me.Think about the ones that would see it and run off before you even knew they were in the area? I would rather not kill that gobbler that day without a decoy then use a strutter and scare him.

And about seeing them on tv, example like b-mobile and avian x and whatever else there is, those people aint going to show us when it doesn't work, that would be bad advertisement on their part. They get to hunt probably every day and hunt the best places in the world so of course it makes their products look good.

I keep them in the truck but in the past 2 or 3 years I may have used them twice maybe. just don't have any luck with them much neither do a lot of people I know. I do have the b mobile and the she mobile I believe its called. but very very very rarely do I use them. the only luck ive had with them really is ive had hens and jakes come to a hen decoy early but that's about it.
