5 Best Predator Decoys 2021: Attract The Predator’s Attention

Predator decoys are an important part of the hunting gear that we needed while doing predator hunting. Well, a decoy can maximize the rate of hunting success. In addition, the purpose of a predator decoy is not only to attract the predator’s attention but also to distract them from you.

Once a predator sees the movement of the decoy fur tail, they lock the target and chasing them to finish. If you want to increase your hunting success then use it with an electronic caller. Because a caller attracts the predator’s attention up to 200 yards and the rest of the work is done by a predator decoy.

MOJO Outdoors is a famous brand for making motion and spinning wing decoys. The MOJO Critter series comes with 5 predator decoys. But I liked the Critter Predator hunting decoy and Super Critter predator decoy. Both are great products but I end up with Super Critter because it comes with a predator caller and built-in tripod stand.

Well, it provides a realistic live-action to all predators, once they see the decoy they lock and chasing them to finish. In addition, the tripod stand and 1/4″ thread help you to carry predator sound further without distortion by the grass, wood, etc. Overall, the most effective predator decoys on the market. Recommend to go with this one if your budget is under $60.

Since 1995 Lucky Duck™ is a famous brand for outdoor gear. They built their brand reputation around the subtle art of critter deception. Well, they have 5 predator decoys each one is good according to their area of interest. But I like Knig Critter the most because it works with e-caller and becomes a perfect remote decoy for hunting.

In a nutshell, it is a lightweight predator decoy with good built quality. When a predator sees the prey-fur spinning top they come closer towards the decoys without seeing you. Most of the features are similar to the MOJO predator decoy except for the inbuilt speaker and tripod stand. Overall, it a good product if your budget is low.

Flambeau Outdoors Predator Decoy

 

Key Features

  • Pest Control Decoy:- It would be deterred or scared the unwanted pests, dogs, Canadian geese, rodents, and even humans in the beginning. When placed in the field, garden, ponds, etc. I see many animals and people freak out when they first saw it. But after some time they used to it and eventually realized it was fake and ignores it. For better results, you need to move it daily so they don’t use it.

Overall, a great coyotes decoy as well as used for pest control decoy with different pose styles. The quality of the material is great especially the fur tail.

ICOtec is a famous outdoor gear brand since 2011, mostly they deal in electronic calls and decoys. The quality of the product is really premium and tremendous results. Well, I chose 2 ICOtec products that are best for universal predator decoy one is ICOtec PD200 and ICOtec AD 400. Both are great decoy but I end up with PD200 due to its low price and stand-alone features in the field. Where AD400 works great with an e-caller.

In a nutshell, PD200 works great with or without an e-caller. Because you can easily push it into the ground with the help of ground spikes. Control the audio and decoy tail movement from 100 yards out in the woods. The decoy’s tail runs continuously with a pause of 3-second and a motion of 5-seconds. Overall, a great product but after few usages, the decoy tail with fur on the top starts to circulate in loops. Rest is a great product and well-built quality.
