Default Decoy

I'm sure this has probably been discussed before, but has anybody tried a Montana or Renzo's type decoy with any success?

I guess I'm more intriqued by how deer would interact with it, than actually using it to "attract deer".

I have no experience with them but remember a post a while back where a buck thrashed a 3-d target in someone fron yard. He was walking by the charged and dropped the target.

I think the biggest thing with decoys is to make them look a real as possible. a piece of white cloth on the rearend that you can make flicker like a tail will help to convince the deer that the decoy is real.

The times deer came in to my flat decoy they seamed to be on edge at close range to the decoy . Last year I shot 2 does less than 20' from the decoy .
