Under the cover of a rainy night I was able to slip into his wheelhouse and set it close to his roost. That gobbler hit it so hard that he snapped the stake in two. The fan I had in the decoy flew 15 feet away from where they decoy was placed. That gobbler spurred two holes the diameter of an ink pen into the decoy's side too. It was pretty spectacular. I busted him @ 16 yards about the time he realized that something wasn't quite right. I wish I had it on video.
I made a jake fan for that King Strut using a fan off an adult gobbler I killed last year with the middle feathers left full length and the side feathers cut shorter and glued into a "Your Biggest Fan collapsible fan kit". Once they're glued in place, the fan can be folded up for easy transport. It looks really good. My brother bought me one of those remote controlled motion decoy stakes from the Bass Pro Shops. I thought it was a joke at first, but it really looks pretty good. I'm not sure that I'd spend that much money on such a thing, but it definitely adds realism. It seems to be just another thing to have to carry. Maybe a decoy sherpa is in order?
