Thread: Moose Decoy

  1. #1

    Default Moose Decoy

    Everyone,

    I have been playing around with an idea of using a cut-out cardboard moose decoy for a long time. The other day I ran across a YT video where some cannucks are using a (forgive the expression) blow-up doll decoy.

    1. I can find nothing in the regs prohibiting the employment of this tactic. If I'm wrong please correct me and direct me to the section I am missing.

    2. Assuming that there is nothing prohibiting it, has anyone else ever tried? Successful? Not worth the effort?

    Thank you all in advance.

    Jim~

    I don't think cardboard would hold up very well in the rain.

    Nice.

    I know what you mean. I think there are a lot of possibilities, especially w/predators.

    My idea is the same with a bull. Something to bring the more stubborn boys in and hold their attention just long enough.

    It would be a great experiment anyhow.

    We have two in camp and they arw fantastic, montana decoys are the ones. Picked the last one up at bass pro. Have made some slight alteration to keep them functioning in the wind.

    Look up Montana decoys. They fold up into your backpack and have tent poles to set them up when needed.

    Iwould be careful where you use them. With all the cow moose hunts you couldfind a nice bullet hole in your decoy! Would be worse if you were behind it!

    My buddy and I used a crude blackened cardboard cutout with success on a moose bowhunt where we really needed a close shot (longbow range, like 20 yards). I called in several bulls that hung up out of range, using grunts, cow calls, and even banged two scapula together to simulate sparring. When I finally showed them the decoy, they walked right into range.....but soon ran back out of range. Hey, at least I did MY job.......
