The Dakota X-treme jake turkey decoy
Well my Dakota X-treme jake turkey decoy (BTD) and DSD hen set-up worked perfectly. Unfortunately, my 11 yr old daughter was unable to recover her bird. She got 2 shots off with the bow at 4 yards as the big Eastern Tom smacked the crap out of the BTD!
Dakota X-treme jake turkey decoy story from PA
He gobbled like crazy on the roost, and then was pretty silent on the ground. I had another tom coming in gobbling like crazy from behind us across the blacktop road. Once the big Tom we were targeting appeared at 40 yds in full strut, he saw the decoys and strutted right in to them, no calling at all. Her first shot with the Bullhead gave him a haircut. He started beating the Dakota X-treme jake turkey decoy BTD Jake harder! Dad screwed up and didn’t have two arrows ready with the Bullhead screwed on so I quickly handed her an arrow with a G5 Stryker…she thumped him right in the head and I thought it was over. we were high-fiving and then he stopped flopping ran, and flew down the hill. 2.5 hours of searching everywhere and no luck…we are just sick!
It was a great hunt, but a disappointing ending. But, we did confirm that the Dakota X-treme jake turkey decoy BTD does work on the tough eastern birds in PA!
