Renzo decoys

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone have success using Renzo decoys for bow hunting? I used mine last year but it seemed to spook deer.

I had the doe and buck decs out last fall and had a dandy buck come in - when he saw them he was more or less indifferent to them, wasn't scared, didn't want to kick butt either. Will try them some more this year.

I used the renzo feeding doe one morning where I hunt over a field. There was a doe coming across the field...when she saw the decoy she stopped, stamped her feet, ran around in a circle, stomped her feet some more, then took off. That was the only time I've used the decoy. After that I'm a little gun-shy of using it again. I've heard does are more leary of them than bucks but I've never experienced the buck/decoy interaction. I havn't gave up on it yet...but I don't know if I'm too quick to try it again any time soon. Hopefully some others have more positive results or tips.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
