Dove Decoy Setup

2 posts in this topic

I was out hunting and got my limit of doves in just over 2 hours. I used a mojo decoy but I'm not sure if my setup was really working. There were a ton of doves in the field so it may have just been luck.

I just had the mojo out in a field just above the ground with some plastic decoys on the ground. I never used decoys before so I'm not sure if this is a good setup or not so I'm looking for some advice. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I hunted some public ground on Sat. I did not have decoys, but another party in the field did. They shot birds, I did not... but I had a dog and they didn't. So when they asked me to join them I did. I did not shoot any birds, but I was happy to work the dog and get some retrieves out of the deal.

They were her first, so I was thrilled!!!!

At the end of the night they said they felt like they should give me something since I did not shoot and they used my dog. I refused, then they tossed the decoy's in the back of my truck.

Back to your post, I think they do make a difference. Getting the spinner up a few feet so it is more visible may help, but I think you have a good start.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
