    Any thoughts on the best all around strutting gobbler decoy?? Last year was my first year turkey hunting and I didnt use one but this year I think I wana just spend the cash and get one. Is this a good idea? If it is what kind is most effective?

    I had a friend last year recount how in the first week he had a Tom fly into a field from a roost-he thought he had been successful in luring the bird into the field-except when the bird hit the ground it just kept going and did not respond to anymore calls--he was a little frustrated to say the least.Three days later he harvested a nice bird--which locked on to the call and came right at him.It is a story that underscores that sometimes the best plans do not work out.It can be much the same for decoys-sometimes but not all the time-there are some good hen(foam) decoys on the market that transport well and when placed on a single stake respond well with motion when the slightest breeze moves through-also available in jakes and mature male birds.(retail--19..99--24.99).Moving up to a full strutting gobbler will be more expensive--see if you can attend a hunting show or dealer that can provide some input on what range of motion is available with a larger decoy-in field conditions a strutting gobbler will turn or move-but not remain static for long periods of time.The best answer is-- it really comes down to the individual bird committing to what is presented.
