Re: dove decoys
After two days of testing I have found the "pigeon" looking dove decoy to be successful. I have two days of testing under my belt with the decoy. I was hunting a half cut corn field wit alfalfa next to it. I hid in the corn both days and put 5 dove decoys including the white one in the low cut alfalfa(40 yards away) for maximum visibility. During the two days of hunting 5 doves were harvested of the five, two were shot in the decoys. There were other times when I would take a walk around the field, come back and flush doves that were next to the decoy spread, but they would flush to far away to take a shot. In one instance a dove was flying high and away, it did a U turn about 150 yards out and came right in landing less than 30 yards away in the corn. The doves that did land, did not land in the alfalfa only in the corn but in line with the decoys only 10 yards away. I will continue to test the decoy more and it would be interesting to see the results of using only the white decoy by itself. I will try to get a picture of the decoy when I get the time.
