I know that the slightest movement will flare doves if you are in a field hunting them so I would think that even though I have never done this, flagging for them is going to flare them more often than bringing them in. Maybe if you had a mojo dove and the birds was way off in the distance flagging might get there attention but I just don't see it working. Maybe someone on here has done it before.

i just went out and made a dozen dove decoys to put up on a high "T" stake like the one that cabelas has! i made em by taking paper plates and rolling them up to form the basic shape of a dove and tape them around to stay in the fixed position. Next i used primer grey spray paint to put on a base color. After that i lightly sprayed on some black paint and dabed at it with a rag to give it some texture. and finnaly for the body, i got a few grey chicken feathers and glued them to the "wing" of the decoy to give it some realism.


for the head, i took a ping-pong ball and painted it in the primer grey, and took a sharpee for the eyes. for the beak, i cut out a 'beak" from a piece of cardboard, painted it black, and glued it to the front of the ping-pong ball. after i finished the head, i then glued that to the body of the dove in any realistic position on the "head area" of the dove.


im taking it out tomarow to see if it works....wish me luck!! :thumbsup:

Seems like a lot of work for a few decoys. Why don't you just pay $1.88 at walmart and get them already painted and they even come with a clip for trees or what ever you want. Not to mention they are plastic and can be thrown into a bag and not crushed.

Has anyone tried the T tree with decoy method? If so, what do you think?
