Default DIY Camcorder Dove Decoy Cover

I have been putting a dove decoy and camcorder in my shooting window and it was getting a little crowded. So I decided to make this and kill two birds with one stone. It should help conceal camera movements as well.

The dove decoy really helps calm animals if you happen to make a noise in the blind.

Awesome design! I have been thinking about carrying a couple to put in the treestand with me and put a few small pieces of toilet paper on them as well if the wind blows it will cause a little movement.

If you want to patent it you better get this thread deleted. Public disclosure without having a patent pending is rule #1 to disallowing a patent.

That said, that's a really cool idea.

I want to see pictures of the one guys set up who has used every tip/trick of advice from TBH and created a death trap for deer. I’m amazed. Next season I’ll be walking around with a mojo dove on my shoulder trying to do a spot and stalk.

Pretty funny, I know I'm guilty of a lot of tips and tricks but I gotta tell you this dove in the window tip has helped me a ton. I would have been busted a few times this morning if I didn't have mine up. Had 4 doe camped out at 15 yards today and I was still able to glass behind me and move because any movement I made they associated with the dove.
