Buck Decoy
« on: December 15, 2015, 04:35:52 PM »
I know there is a LOT of buck decoys out there.  Can anyone steer me to a good one, not the cheapest nor the most expensive.

Thanks!

personally I've never had much luck w/ deer decoys, but it think it's due to the low deer density in my area.

I do like the look of the flambeau boss buck and the primos version. if you want to spend the money, there are also some decoys w/ real hair. I can't remember there name though

good luck

Same for me as Yari, never had luck with them myself.

I have used a small buck decoy twice and both times I had 130ish bucks working my way and once I know they seen the decoy they bolted.

I know some have great luck using them, right time and right place, but I just have had bad luck so I gave up using them years ago.

I tried a decoy several years back. Configured as a buck or a doe the real deer avoided it like the plague. I have not tried to use it since.

Never tried one, know a couple of people tried them and decided that they were not worth it

I've know a few folks that used them and never had any luck. Said they were not worth the hassle.
