Default Win a Spitfire game call

Here is where to win the Spitfire game call!! Just ask your question about using decoys and then listen to the show on 12/1 to see if your name gets called. Its that easy. Take a look around the site and see what else FOXPRO has to offer. There are some new hand calls, E calls and gear to check out!!

Do you use any scent with your decoy?

How about a couple of questions?
First being, is there any hard "proof" that the folks using decoys have a better response when calling as opposed to those who don't?
How effective are decoys in areas where there is alot of heavy, taller, ground cover that tends to hide most of the decoy movement?
Thanks

How will the decoy work on frozen or rocky ground as far as sitting up?

When deer hunting I've always tried to hunt ahead of a front since the deer move a little better at that time. Would you say that coyote do the same?

When using a decoy, taking wind into consideration, where do you place your decoy from you(upwind, downwind, etc.?) Also how far away would you place it?

Do you ever put the decoy in a different spot than the caller ? If not why ?

How about where to place in relationship to the call and the wind? Explain the importance of visibility when making the setup of not only the prey seeing the decoy but being able to see the decoy when a coyote comes charging in to the grab the flopping little critter.


Do they think that a decoy makes a difference at night or is it most effective during the day?

Opinion on the importance of movement, such as the JIB or the Jack Attack, as apposed to a full body decoy such as a coyote or fawn silhouette?

On another note- any funny story's of how a owl or hawk came in and swiped their decoy from a set.

Do you think that a remote activated call has an advantage over one that you just turn on and let run. What are the advantages to being able to turn the decoy on and off and when and why would you want to turn it off and back on?

So far the decoys I have played around with seem noisy to me - how would you rate the noise level of Foxpro's Jack Attack?
