Looking for your go to decoy suggestions

From: RD
If you are going during the rut like I have done for a few years I would highly recommend a full body doe decoy, they seem to come to them really well.

From: JohnMC
I find this time of year they like to stare at a decoy for a bit then walk away. Late September in October much more effective.

Stalk in with a Moo Cow decoy, you can close the gap, regardless of rut stage.

From: Brotsky
My experience is they run REALLY fast. Sometimes to you, most of the time away from you!

From: Don K
I wish I had a Moo Cow last year, cattle all around and they didnt care one bit about them. I was a bit before the rut but had some good luck with the Ultimate Predator Antelope decoy that mounts on the bow.

From what little I’ve decoyed, you need to manage to get in their comfort zone before you pop the decoy on them. If you aren’t close enough to be a threat they will take their girls and haul ass. It is great fun when it works though !
