Got An Opinion On This ?

Postby hoosierhunter » April 14th, 2009, 2:56 pm

I would like to introduce you to Thomas, Patience, and Prudence. These are my hunting partners, and we don't always hunt together, sometimes, Thomas stays home, and it's just me and the girls. Sometimes it's just me, all by myself. So....., what ya think ?
 
 
GOOD LUCK, GOD BLESS, AND STAY SAFE !

I think those are some good looking dekes!

I have become a devotee of the single hen set-up. I have one rubber delta hen decoy that has covered a lot of ground in my pouch. I have done some touch up work with paints and I put some gloss to her eyes with some lacquer, but nothing like yours. Being a mobile hunter, I cannot see myself toting that spread, but it looks like it would be fun to hunt over.

Is Prudence the standing hen? I like her posture, a bit puffed out like a challenge to other hens. Not bad at all for a homemade stuffer.
 
I've had much better luck with decoys when I switched to a Gander Mountain Guide Series feeding hen about three years ago. I think upright hens and jakes put incoming turkeys on alert. There is a video segment on this site by Tad Brown that alludes to the same topic. The feeding hen used in conjunction with the Pretty Boy and P-girl is a deadly combination.

They look great. I am pretty sure I would end up blasting one of them though.

Great looking Dekes.

Question I have about dekes. I have some that need a little maintenance. I have the Delta lites I think, the collapsible foam type plus B-Mobile. Any thoughts on what paints I could use to give them a little touch up?
