I was doing some browsing on BPS and Cabela's. It appears to me that a jake and a hen has some looks other than the small beard. Is this correct? I found foam jake decoys on sale for $7.99. I was wondering with a couplr of these and cut beard off one if that would work? Now for a blind. I have 2 blinds. One rather large and a small one man. The small one is quick set up. Is it better using a blind or not? I thought it would help conceal some movement. Especially if you roost them. I have some mouth calls and a few slates. I can use a mouth call, a friend taught me years ago. What sounds is most commonly used during the Spring?
