There's no reason that your custom jake decoy shouldn't help draw gobblers. There used to be some foam decoys sold that looked absolutely horrible, yet they still worked. As long as you have it set up in a good area and yourself well hidden, it should help draw a gobbler's attention. Good luck on 'em this year.

I'm with Jim. I use a couple foam roll up foam decoys, a hen and a jake. They work fine for me,,,,taken several gobblers over them. I forgot to pick the hen up a couple years ago and two days later when I got back she had been beat up terrible. Used hot glue to put her back together and repainted the head and still using it.
