I've used a hen and a jake sometimes, other times two hens and a jake. This morning, I went out with a co-worker and called for him and we used two jakes and two hens. The more decoys, the better, especially if two hunters are hunting together. Each hunter can carry a couple of decoys and set up a small flock. Believe me, it works well!

dude, the more decoys there are, the more comfortable the tom feels.....

Well that sounds about right but the best thing is the way to set it up.
