Learn deer decoy placements for each phase of the season with this illustrated guide.
The deer decoy is a powerful tool in the bowhunter’s arsenal. It can lure in a dominant buck and help to hide an archer’s movements. But decoys are only effective tools if used correctly.
Deer behave differently during different times of the year, especially during the short window of deer hunting season. It’s important to know how and where to place a decoy and what kind of decoy to use during each phase of the season.
This illustrated guide from Montana Decoy Co will help you do just that. The guide shows a variety of decoy placements and strategies for pre-rut, peak-rut, post-rut and late-season phases.
The illustrations suggest different types of decoys offered by Montana Decoy Co, but similar decoys would also work in these situations. If you’re interested in the company’s products – they really do make some fantastic and hyper-realistic decoys – visit this page.
