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.

      I believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      How far did you get?

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
