Transport your decoy to the field on the provided stand and in the field in the carrying bag.
When positioning your decoy in a hunting situation, position the decoy quartering away from you either right or left. Make sure your decoy is approximately 15-20 yards away from your calling spot. This position will allow the gobbler to approach the decoy from the rear providing the perfect shot opportunity.
Make sure there is a strutting path open around your decoy; this will give the gobbler plenty of room to strut around her and put on his show.
Stick the leg rods firmly in the ground until the bottom of the leg is touching the ground.
Remove your carrying case and large plastic bag and take them with you to your calling spot.
Typically when a gobbler comes in to a Hazel Creek Decoy he will strut as he approaches, strut around and bump her, sometimes you can tell he is trying to get her to lay for him. This is a good sign that he is about to try and jump on her back. I have to caution you again even though it is quite the show that you will be taking a big risk and that your decoy could get damaged. (This also goes for jakes, we have had jakes do more damage to our decoys than gobblers)
Have a great time, hope your heart pumps as hard as mine does. I am confident that you will never leave your Hazel Creek Decoy at the house once you have experienced hunting with her.
