Turkey season in Montana begins April 13th! I was recently looking around at turkey decoys online, and I came across a DIY “motorized” turkey decoy on the archerytalk.com forum. It’s easier to do than you think!
A turkey hunter in New York state decided to attach his turkey decoy to the base of an electric remote-control car! He was a bit concerned about the noise it made at first, but others on the forum suggested that he could use the motorized decoy to run around from a distance, and once he got toms to come in, he could then stop moving it. Genius!
This could be a great way to lure that prized tom in close enough to get him with your bow. After testing his motorized decoy, he has changed a few things and learned what works and what doesn’t.
