This is a take off question from one of my other posts. I know that the feather and the arrow seem to be getting a lot of good results recently. What about some of the other commercial products such as Mojo or Jack in the Box. What do you use, why, what kind of results do you get, what animal behaviors have you seen from the use of the decoy that you didn't see before, etc? Does everyone use a decoy now or do some still go without? Thanks!Jason

I tossed the feather and arrow aside for this weekend and made up a new prototype decoy for myself.. I call him WAYNE.. Why Wayne, I don't know just seemed like a funny name at the time. Anyway I drilled a hole in the bottom of a Decoy Heart, put a hard but small spring in it and then put the other end of the spring in the nock end of an arrow. Disected one of my daughter's teddy bears and glued some feathers on him. Wayne dances like John Travolta and it looks great.. Unfortunately the only coyote we called in didn't get a chance to take a look at him, because he caught a whiff of good ole "STINKY SWITCH" and did an immediate 180 at about 250yds...I'll post more on Wayne after this weekend..

I am going to get my Jack in the Box out Sunday for bobcat opener. With any luck I will report back and possibly even have a little video.Soreloser, I look forward to seeing Wayne.

Do you use that with a rabbit distress too or just the injured woodpecker sound?Jason

I wonder if some robo doves would have the same success.
