    Which decoy would be better, Mojo spinner or Primos Quiver Rabbit?

    Had the rabbit but it was a problem to pack and made a rattle noise. I like a couple turkey feathers in the wind but have had a great deal of luck with a cheap, plastic, blow up turkey hen; that packs easily in pocket, from Walmart.With the right call it gets attention placed a little sideways like it's been hurt.

    I was trying to make up my mind between the two and choose the Mojo. Why?? I don't know, LOL.

    One thing I was surprised when I got it. It fits right in my carry bag with the Alpha Dogg caller for a prefect fit.

    I don't get the opportunity to yote hunt as much as I like to... but I have had good luck over the past few years using decoys. Guess it's just a confidence thing but like the aspect of something to draw attention away from me. So... I carry a fox-pro jack-attack, quiver critter and a feather in my call bag and have killed yotes using all of these types of decoys.

    But without reservation... I've killed more yotes with the quiver critter than any decoy I own.

    A few pics ............

    Does'nt show the decoy used... but was a simple turkey feather on a string tied to a sapling at the edge of some CRP ground.

    Some nice looking coyotes, JD. I have read where some hunters say that a decoy scared coyotes off for them. I have never seen that happen. I can easily see where a smart coyote comes in looking for coyotes that he just heard, but sees a small critter shaking, so he puts two and two together and heads out.

    I have the quiver critter and the Mojo. I prefer the Mojo, a lot more action, but as someone else said the turkey feather on a string works well also. easy to carry and no battery to run down, also works as a wind checker

    I prefer a decoy I can control with my ecaller remote.

    They don't use any batteries, but they can chomp down some grub. (LOL) Looking good, Chuck.

    I believe Sam and Cloe could make better use of a decoy like old Chuck. Put him out there with a pork chop hanging around his neck, and then have lots of coyotes to play with.

    Check out the Predator Enticer Come-Alive Motion Decoy. These things work great. Small, compact and inexpensive. They have a delay timer that is adjustable and come with 3 or 4 different color decoys that you can change out. There is video footage on the internet to see the action. Yotes, fox and bobcats are attracted to these. I think some of the decoys are too big and scare off fox and even some cats. I love mine. I saw one on ebay today for $18.50 opening price and buy now price of $39.95.

    That's the one I use and I love it. Ill also use a flapping dove decoy (painted like a Cooper's hawk) in the tree above the decoy. I've got about 5 bucks in the dove and paid the above price for the enticer. I used it as a deer decoy tail for 5 days in deer season and the batteries are still good.
