Thread: Using a montana elk decoy for hunting Caribou

    Default Using a montana elk decoy for hunting Caribou

    I havn't been able to find a Caribou decoy and was wondering if a montana elk decoy would work to attract a caribou into bow range?

    Any feed back would be appreciated. I know it sounds crazy but who knows it might work.

    Thanks

    Default decoy

    I would bet that it would work because I have been able to draw them in quite a bit closer just by bending at the waist to keep my back parallel to the ground and walking. The decoy would be a lot better than that.

    Default Caribou

    I can't see why the caribou decoy is taking so long. Blow up a picture and paste it on a piece of material to suppost it. They prototyped it on hunts last year or year before on the Outdoor Channel.

    i tried a antelope decoy one year but had no success.
    i have heard of people with homemade ones having success.

    Default decoy

    I saw a caribou decoy for sale in Bowhunt America a couple of months ago.

    You may want to do a little searching and see what comes up.
