I have never tried but do see it on some of the shows on tv. I know we can not use a live decoy but I was under the assumption that they were talking about a live turkey.

Seems to me Wil Primos did that a few years back and I think the Primos Team did it with a deer and a turkey. If I'm not mistaken that is what started their "B-mobile" decoy. I would think the laws would differ from state to state but I am not positive about that.

the arrows...5575 Gold Tip Expedition Hunters
the broadheads...100 grain Slick Tricks
the result...hours of enjoyment and "fresh meat"

I'm sure every state is different but I don't think any of them would consider a mounted bird as a "live decoy".

I talked to a person with game and fish here in FL about this last weekn and he says yes you absolutely could use a mounted bird if your dumb enough to sit your $650 turkey out in the elements. What they are talking about is a live hen that is tied up or fenced in some way.

Sticker, I have never done that but have always wanted to try it while turkey hunting especially.
