Will hopefully be sitting a waterhole for the first time in a couple weeks. With my daughter. The waterhole I'm planning on using is a little bit big, and my daughter is really only good out to about 30 yards. I've heard that placing a decoy on the far end of bigger holes like this will serve to push the pronghorns closer to the blind. Sounds a little strange to me, I'm wondering if just hunkering in the blind with no decoy and hoping the goats will wander close to us isn't the best idea. Anyone have experience with the decoy technique? Are there threads on here about that already?

Thanks,

dg

I don't like using a decoy at water.

They're spooky enough.

I do not think it would make any difference except during the rut which isn't until the last half of September.
