Mad calls smokey baby decoy
Anyone see this?
Interesting. Wonder if it would really work like they say.
I'm not a big decoy kinda guy, I blast them with shotgun whenever they get within range...8^) but ya know, I wouldn't doubt it'd work... Have actually seen a couple live wild birds of that color phase... Am sure it'd get a gobblers attention, but whether he'd come,,,, hmmmm I'll guess 50-50, some will some won't...8^)
I can see where it might work, just like putting a bleach blonde in a room full of brunettes.
Might work around here, although I haven't seen this gal this year.
That's a beautiful bird Mike!
I know that's you can get these color phases. But they aren't that common. So you would think it would spook some birds.
Supposidly it really works wonders!
I use a whole flock of them. This guy finally just dropped over dead trying to breed them all!
Wow Ziek, that is a pretty bird...
The couple I seen through the years (different areas) seemed to have more silver-black through them, rather than that bronze but never did get a real close look at them... Nothing like that picture you got. That bronze color is cool...
