Over kill? Under equipped? Possible Yeti owners?


Does this really help a person bag more dove, even when you have 16 mojo decoys going?

I used to be an avid dove hunter.

We always just wore jeans and shirt with a gun vest, if it was hot we would remove our shirts.

Never used Mojo and never thought about painting my face

Same type that go to the shooting range in full combat gear and think you need a 338 lapua to kill a whitetail.

Jeans and dark shirt is all that is needed.

Mojos are the bomb though. They really work and they will increase the amount of dove you bag or how fast you bag them.

I hunt in jeans and a shirt, some days its camo, some days its a brown shooting shirt.


I used a mojo a few times back in the day, where we hunt there are a lot of whitewings and they really pay them no mind so we just hunt doves the "old fashioned" way

went to the ranch Friday with my GF who is new to wingshooting so I picked one up to get her some easy shots(mostly mourning dove there). I forgot how much fun those things are. they were dipping and diving into the decoy in 3's and 4's and were landing next to it. We got limits pretty quick, and the mojo def. helped

If that makes people happy why worry. It's not really hurting anything. If it makes the observer feel like a superior person then it's a win-win for everyone. They get the joy of hunting in full camo and the observer receives self validation that he is not an idiot.

I'll wear camo some mainly because my hunting jeans are dirty and I don't want to get blood on my good ones.

Whitewings for sure do not decoy and it will even flare them but it sure sucks in the mourning dove.

I prefer this for dove hunting. My Yeti is covered too.

I wear shorts and a khaki shirt most days. I think full camo is overkill for a little bird that doesn't pay much attention to things unless they are moving.
I am more into keeping cool than being cool!

Yup...full camo helps, staying still helps, mojo is definitely a big help. Some days the birds are so thick or careless it doesn't matter if you wear a clown suit. It is all about getting close to the birds so you hunt the situation your field gives you. On opening day the birds in my field were using the middle of the plowed field (almost zero cover). The guys in chairs on the side of the filed killed a few but I watched a guy in the middle of the field wear a camo hoodie, get small kill his limit before anyone else. What does it hurt to stack the cards in your favor?.

I usually just wear a dark shirt, shorts and a game vest. However, if folks want to get decked out that's fine with me.

Dude, wearing camo is fun regardless of what you're doing.

Not sure anyone really cares. I know I don't. I'd feel comfortable betting that when most hunters start out they probably buy a bunch of non needed camo, vests, bags, stools, bucket stools that spin, etc. have you looked in your hunting closet lately? the best part of these posts are the people that chime in and say, "no not me", we are way to cool to hunt like that. We just role up in whatever we woke up in and the birds just fall at our feet. I'd like to own a yeti. Not because I think it would make me appear to be better hunter or a "better" outdoorsman than the next guy, I am tired of all my ice melting in the cheap [censored] igloo I currently have. Hunting is whatever you or I want to make it. If we both get the same results, what's your point?
