    What's your favorite type of decoys and how do you like to set them out?

    DSD are excellent and are what I have been using for the last couple of seasons but some of the new decoy offerings this year are pretty sweet. Jake/hen or hen early with a strutter later in the season. I am trying a flock this year early on to see if it will help those stubborn toms come have a look! Good luck all!

    I've got a set of two hens and a jake, the hard plastic bodied type. I've just never had any luck with them, they seem to scare the tom away. Don't know what the problem is...

    My wife got me a killer-b tom decoy that has the string to pull the tail feathers down.. Anyone had any luck using one of these??
    I also bought a simple feather-flex hen decoy.. going to try all different decoys this year.

    ArrowCrazy.... not sure what DSD are??

    I'll be waiting for the May 4th opener in PA. If I take a bow, it'll be a Morrison Mini 14 ILF riser with Uukha HX 10 Nature short recurve limbs.

    DSD stands for Dave Smith Decoys woodsman, They are incredible!! I have actually jumped a little right at day break because i thought a big gobbler had snuck up on me without a sound!
