Has anyone watched the new Primos video and / or the HS Strut?
They both have mounted decoys and the reactions from turkeys is great. Gave me the idea to try a mounted bird.

Anyone ever try this?

im sure it would work great. the only
problem for me would be walking a stuffed
turkey in and out of public ground without
getting a dose of #5's.
if your on private with a atv though<img src="/images/boards/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" align="absmiddle">

not to mention thats a pretty dang expensive decoy. I get ticked off enough when my styofoam ones get nicked up. Id say the reason you see hunters on tv doing it is because they aint payin for it. As far as huntin shows go for me, they are fun to watch but very little is learned from.

Great idea Jeff. The concern I would have would be carrying the thing around. could be a pain in the butt! But you know the areas you hunt. Could work real good.

Yea I know the dangers. Was going to wrap it in an orange sweatshirt when walking. Just thought about the real wind blowing feather effect. I held up a new Flambaeu decoy to a mounted hen and a jake (I mounted myself) and thought what a differance between them. Goose decoys are almost identical now and was
wondering how effective a better looking decoy would work.

Last year only had two hunters close to us on 26 hunts. All private ground. The set up would be important. Open field around a real mount if case someone would sneak up. But here I am not worried about it.

Got another idea that might be worthwhile too. I will share it later.
