Default On the ground with a decoy

I linked a video the other day where some pub.land guys used a home made decoy type thing to get up close to rutting bucks. I decided i wanted to make one and add that excitement to my hunts. Well before i could make one i found this solo target at Hoffy's yesterday and figured it would be much better than anything i could do.
So, Saturday i'm going to give it a try.

Typically i dont leave home with out it but for this hunt ( if when the rut gets in full swing) I'll just be grunting and rattling.

That sounds like a good way to get stuck in the butt in the middle of the forest.

That’s pretty cool Kirby! You shouldn’t have to worry about getting dinks in with that decoy! I hope it works.

Good luck!!!!

I just hope I dont get my butt kicked. Not sure if the bucks are going crazy yet. Just got down here. But I am interested in seeing if I can walk around with out running stuff off. I plan to sit on a hill in the morning until I see something then see how close I can get.

I figured you'd have been mauled by an ol buck by now, any action with the decoy?

Looks good. Just might work. My concern is your decoy is a stud. Lots of bucks may not want to mess with him.

No video this morning. Several coyotes came by just at daylight. I slung an arrow but heard it hit rock and no blood. I did see my target buck while relocating to another spot. He saw that bid old buck decoy and took off......or he just saw me carrying it."-)
I pretty much just sat on the side of a hill where I could see several hundred yards around me. Hoping to see a hooked up buck that would not want any other bucks messing with him
Figured that might allow this thing to work. Did not see any mature bucks besides my target buck ( 6 point ) so, baited out a couple spots and will try again this afternoon

Maybe in a few weeks once the rut starts, the decoy will work better??

That's what I'm thinking. When I see some real serious action I'm going to break it back out and see.
