I have a Funky Chicken decoy and was wondering if I should use it this weekend for youth season or not. In the past I have only used hen decoys and have had success with just those, but was thinking about adding the Funky Chicken this year. I understand if what has been working, why change it up but was looking for opinions on this. Thanks.

I don't see it hurting. I used a full strut decoy this weekend. Toms weren't even interested. The hens were more infatuated with my hen decoys. 2 of the hens stayed around and fought with the decoys for a couple of hours after all the others had left. Toms were more interested in the real thing moving around than the stationary decoys.

Where I see a real difference is when a single or a couple of Toms come in all alone.

The decoys will be more effective this time of the year latrr in the morning like after 9:30 to in the afternoon when lots of the gobblers with hens will start looking for new girlfriends

Funky chicken is awesome in the right setup. Put a hen down on the ground and have the funky one about 2 feet behind her looking at her. Keep both decoys looking away from where you think the Tom is coming in. When the Tom sees him, he will get irritated they donít turn around to look at him and he will come in.

If you donít set the decoys looking away, the birds may hang up when they donít see the funky chicken run off.

At least this has been my experience.
