Dove Decoys

Postby newbiewaterfowler » Sun Jul 31, 2005 8:46 am

I've notice alot more manufactures of dove deoys and stores stocking more dove decoys.Does anyone use them??They make a diffrence???How many do you use??Ive always hunted without them and sit and wait for them to come to me,but if these decoys work I'll pick up a few if it means bagging a few more dove.

We have a couple that we bought at wal mart a while ago. We set them on a fence post and yes they do attract the doves to them. I've heard from people using the mojos by the water that those really work.

decoying doves is IMO the funnest way to hunt them I use seven decoys either by a water hole in the desert or a tree line.

Newb, I put soe out on the ground infront of where I am hunting and in trees. Just like you said as high as you can reach and make sure the decoys aren't to far back in the tree. They dont work if they are covered by leaves. I also have a mojo dove, it works so well we call it "the cheater dove".

I used them last year for the first time. I did notice a difference. I clipped them on to the clear section of fence that I was hunting along. It did seem that they would turn towards me when they would pick out the birds on the fence.

I use a mojo dove too. Wow do they work. Last season I had dove trying to land on the darn thing. They are only $40 at Bass Pro right now. Very tempting to go buy another one.

here in SC i haven't ever had a need for them. we have some many agriculture fields that they are dive bombing you can sit just about anywhere. i have a couple of friends who have tried them but they can't really tell a big difference. get on a good field and you can put out a fire hydrant and it won't matter. if the birds want in that field, they're gonna get in it.

ive never used a call, so i cant help you there... but i do know that decoys are awesome... i've heard that even just 1 or 2 will bring in a lot more doves... and the mojos just pull em in like flies to honey.
