I'm new to predator hunting and would like to know what type of decoy you use while you're calling. Thanks in advance.

Depends on what call your using. You don't need a decoy of any kind but I'd ask slim. He is the one to ask.

I've had success with the Mojo Critter, I use it almost every time. Works on bobcats and yotes but it's not anything you need. I think it does 2 things, gives them something to visualize when they hear a distress sound, and it gives them something to focus on so you can get on target.

This is what I do. I have a FoxJack on my Shockwave and use it to get the yotes attention away from me. I also sometimes take out the Coyote decoy and plauy love sick songs during the matting season.

Never tried it myself, but I've heard of folks just tying a turkey feather to a limb, dangling from a string in the wind.

Back in the day that's what we used.
Had a little piece of cane about 18" long and had a fluffy feather of some kind tied to it with a piece of sewing thread.
We would just stick it up out about 30 yards out and to one side of where we were set up.

Those are the ones people use for bobcats but they will sometimes work for coyotes.

I don't use a decoy anymore. The main reason is it's just more that I have to carry. They work great and sometimes too good because once they get focused on the decoy it can be hard to get them to stop for a shot. When I was using one all the time it was the $40 mojo spinner and it worked great.

I know people that just used a brown teddy bear with success.
