Default Buck or Doe decoy for PA?

Not sure which one to get. I'd love to get a buck decoy in hopes of bringing in a monster but since i'm not holding out for a big one, i wouldnt want the buck decoy to scare away a smaller legal buck. The doe decoy seems like its the safe bet between the two.What do u guys think? Thanks.

I have no experience with them, but it seems that it would depend on the time of year and what caliber of buck you are after. I also agree a doe would seem to be more "neutral" attracting both.

For me, though, I personally don't want to carry one into the woods. I already have enough to haul to the tree.

If you get the Carry-Lite. You can use it as either. The antlers are removable.

I agree with the doe decision. It is more likely to attract both bucks and does. I have had too many situations where a buck decoy kept the smaller bucks away...and I am not that picky.
