Funky Chicken Decoy

Recommended Posts

Well maybe it's not the new best thing? I may get one and try it out. The video they had on it really showed the big birds didn't care for it to much and would come right in for a fight.

Looks like a hokey rubber chicken to me. With all the new realistic looking deeks on the market today why would you even try this?

The premise is that it will insite the bigger birds in for a fight. The long Red neck is a sign he is ready to fight. The videos looked pretty impressive where the other Tom's went right for him and did not pay much attention to the other hen dec. Kind of the skinny guy at the bar thinking he can whip everyone else! grin

I have a friend with one and has zero success with it. Junk IMO. Agreed with the DSD, Avians, etc its tough beating them. However their price tag is ridiculous. I wanted new decoys this spring and bit the bullet on some Avians. We shall see if they earn their keep in my bag.

bought a DSD hen last year... live hens were constantly coming up and picking fights with it. You talk about the best call you can carry... it's a decoy that pi$$es off a hen to sound off! The Tom's come unglued!

I did pick up the Avian Jake this year. Thinking I may have better luck with that if the Tom's are henned up.

Good Luck!

I ordered one last night and will hopefully have it by Thursday when my season kicks off. I generally buy one deke a year to build up my supply but I also bought a Primos b- mobile Tom as well. Not many birds where I hunt and I really want to get my 12 YO son a bird as he has been hunting since he was nine and has yet to get a shot at one.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
