The solo jake turkey decoy set up
A lone Dakota xtreme jake turkey decoy can be a deadly setup. One can only guess at the real reasons, so here we go.
What’s a tom think when he sees a lone jake turkey decoy
If you are a mature tom coming to the sounds of a spring hen, and only find a jake turkey decoy where she was at, what would your reaction be? Granted we are not turkeys, but aggression is a very common response. The body language Constantine carved into our Best Turkey Decoy is an arrogant pose that the toms can read from a long ways off. He was built this way to make those mature toms angry. The semi strut feather position and slightly back tilted head does not sit well with a tom.
Spring and fall, a jake turkey decoy triggers aggression
A mature tom will often strike out at the arrogant jake no matter what time of year it is. Put a realistic jake decoy near a roost site or in your favorite food plots for deer any time of year and the other male birds are quick to put him at the bottom of the pecking order. You can take advantage of this reaction spring or fall to score on mature toms. Put your jake turkey decoy any place that a mature tom thinks he is king, and you may well bring on a fight. It’s been happening over and over again last fall and this spring on a fairly regular basis.
