Dove Decoy Setup

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
