I've used a hen/jake combo past couple years but thinking of just carrying one decoy. Anyone use just one decoy? Hen or jake?

I have used single hens in the past. Seems to bring in more hens than anything. I've got a Pretty Boy Jr jake to try this year. I'll let you know my results soon enough.

I am getting to where I use fewer and fewer decoys every year.

Just don't see the "positive" reactions like alot of people do.

Same here, since the "full strut" decoys came out it appears decoys have lost a lot of their efficacy. I still use them some, but what combo depends on how the birds seem to be acting.

If the birds are not pressured and the hens not quit receptive I like the Pretty Boy. A lone hen decoy in the middle of the day seems to work OK, but I still like no decoys in the middle of the day...if he gobbles at you between 10-2 he is coming in and a decoy aint gonna make the difference IMO.
