Turkey Decoy Strategies | Part 1: “Fanning” with Strutter Decoys
...should be outlawed.
This is a word association game, isn't it?
I was very disappointed to not find a picture of Dakota Fanning with some decoys.
Not for me...not even a considered strategy. This kind of turkey hunting does nothing for me. I guess if I just wanted to kill one and tried everything else and was so desperate I just had to have one, I might be the kind of guy to try it.
Part three.....how to pick a plastic surgeon and the dangers of lead poisoning.
What others do is not a concern of mine.
Fanning is awesome. Having a late season, midday, hen-ed up Tom come at you on a sprint is such a rush. Last year I had a Tom withing 3' of my gun barrel and hens on all sides while army crawling with a fan I cut off a bird from earlier in the year.
Dakota Fanning--- meh
First time I did it was a rush. Second time, same thing happened with the bird, but I didn't feel "right," and that was long before many people had heard of the technique. Just felt like I'd used a dirty trick to beat a bird. The rush is undeniable, the satisfaction though is very much lacking for me.
Here is Part 2... Enjoy!
I really do wish folks would quit promoting the technique. That said, glad y'all touched on safety. One thing worth noting is YOU CAN NEVER BE CERTAIN YOU ARE ALONE EVEN ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. I know one game warden who has already written over thirty citations for trespass this spring, and he's had far more calls than that when the party got away with it.
Odds are, you are sharing the woods with a poacher far more than you realize. When you think you are safest could truly be when you are most at risk. Could pay to keep that in mind whether you "fan" or not.
^^^^^^^ the "trick" will persevere until a few very costly lawsuits against the decoy makers make the sale of these products too economically risky, and some sad funerals make people understand how dangerous this tactic really is.
Had a non-turkey hunting buddy at work talking about the Mojo Scoot-N-Shoot this morning. He claimed it was the best thing since sliced bread, etc, etc... I laughed at him, and told him pretty much the same things Bill Cooksey and Mister Gadwall said. He couldn't understand why I'd say that, and why I wouldn't hunt that way.
FWIW, he is an expert non-turkey hunter/innernet assassin.
