Default Decoy

So I have watched a number of videos on Youtube along with professionally made videos and have seen a few decoys being used... It seems that a hen that is submissive and ready to breed along with a strutting jake/tom along with another bird is the decoy set upthat seems to have the most success.
What it is worth what are some opinions on what style of decoy to use, what brand do you recommend based on transportability, ease of set up, and how easy is it to find at a chain store... ie; dicks sporting goods, gander mountain, or even cabelas?
Thanks in advance for all the advice and happy hunting!

I only use decoys about half the time but when I do, I useone jake and 2 hens, with a hen close to my jake. If you have the jake facing you the gobbler may come in frunt of the decoy( face to face)giving you time to ajust if needed. I liketo use them as they keep the gobblers attention and may bring him in those last steps.
I have sevral brandsand really dont think it matters just somthing you can
collapse and stick in your pack. Feather light is good.[/align]

Just use a standard hen decoy without the stake. Place her on the ground and then place a stick on each side to prevent her from tipping over. Then place a jake decoy on it's stake as close behind her as you can and then watch the show!!
