The ugly hen turkey decoy contest starts today
We have been getting a lot of emails and phone calls asking why we didn’t make a hen turkey decoy.
‘Why would you make a jake before a hen’?
‘People buy more hen decoys than jakes, so why did you make a jake’?
Here is our answer. The crew at best turkey decoy have spent their entire turkey hunting careers with a bow in hand. I did personally kill my first tom with a shotgun, and of all those
bow killed turkeys, only 2 have had a sight pin on their body. My point is I like to have them spittin’ close before I close the deal. Bowhunting turkeys is a whole different game than gun hunting them. Sure you can sneak around and try stalk up on one, and some guys claim they can make killing archery shots at 60 yards on the big black birds, but archery hunting success usually comes when you hunker down in a ground blind and call the birds into your decoys. You spend a lot more time watching than, sneaking, running or shooting when you bowhunt birds, and if you study hard enough, you pick up on subtle pieces of body language wild turkeys use to communicate.
We pooled that knowledge and threw every piece of arrogant jake body language into the Best Turkey Decoy. The best way to bring them all the way into the decoys is with a jake turkey decoy. A jake turkey decoy with the correct arrogant body posture like ours really pushes a mature toms buttons. You can stick our jake close to a roost area in the fall, or you can put him out with a hen or two in the spring and you will get the same results, angry tom turkeys, and angry tom turkeys will consistently attack our Dakota Extreme Jake turkey decoy.
To prove our theory, we are starting the ‘Ugly Hen Turkey Decoy Contest’. Today. Right now. Our jake turkey decoy is so lifelike and irritating to mature toms, that they don’t even pay attention to your hens until after they give him a good spanking. We will be using some of the ugliest hen turkey decoys we can find this year to show you how effective the arrogant posture is on big toms. To enter, send us pictures or footage of you with your Best Turkey Decoy, and an Ugly Hen Turkey Decoy to get your shot at these prizes-
1rst place is a 2013 Nebraska turkey hunt, gun or bow.
We fully realize that a solo hen turkey decoy set up has been responsible for more toms dying than the pilgrims, and are not trying to suggest people give up the tactic, but for those of us who really enjoy the full show, our jake turkey decoy can help give you a front row seat this spring. Good luck-
