Re: dove tree

Sure no problem

Supplies
10ft 1 inch pvc pipe for tree trunk
20 ft of 1/2 inch pvc pipe for tree limbs
2- one inch pvc connectors
4 pvc T connectors to connect the limbs to the tree trunk
5 - 1/2 inch 45 degree connectors

Can of brown spray

I cut the tree trunk in half and used a 1 inch connector to piece the two sections together then I cut another foot off the bottom and placed the other 1 inch connector this piece will be pounded into the ground in the field then connect rest of tree to it. I put never seize in connectors so I can POP the pieces out easily and make it more mobile....then just add the t connectors to trunk I started about 9 inches from top and started the limbs from there u can make the limb sections as long or short as u want...I also put never sieze in the t connectors where the limbs attach so I can just slide them in and out, if u look at the pic u can see how I put the 45 degree connectors to get the bends in the limbs

To be able to connect the decoy to the 1/2 I just drilled it out so there was a notch for the clip to grab onto

The tree ended up being a little flimsy so I drilled 4 holes threw the bottom section of the trunk and took some boot laces and some tent stakes so I can anchor the tree better do its not leaning

I hope I explained it good enough if need be just save the pic and blow it up u can see all the connectors and adapters

Pm me if u have any questions

Re: dove tree

I didn't use all 20 feet of 1/2 pvc pipe for the limbs had a good bit left over but that's up to u how long ya want ur limbs...the longer the limbs the more top heavy the tree will be

Re: dove tree

I made years ago a tree. I took a couple feet of copper pipe and glued it inside PVC and made a point to stick in the ground. Then just made a it about 7ft tall and put it as a T and attach 2-3 decoys to it. Some days it seems hot others they want nothing to do with it.

Re: dove tree

Take an old patio umbrella and remove the material, then use the dove decoys with the clothes pin on them and clip a few of them on the "branches" of the umbrella. It's cheap and it works pretty good too.
