I usually hunt by my self or with one or two friends, so the birds don't continually move like when you have a big group of hunters. I used to kill about six doves on a good hunt until I got the robo dove. Ever since I have used the robo dove I have limited out many times, I have doves land right next to it and I have had them fly right on top of it like they wanted to mate with it and actualy have to wait a few seconds so I don't shoot the decoy. I have found the key is to put it up high and in shooting range. I put mine in the top of a iron pipe that is a corner of a cattle pen and the robo dove is about seven feet off the ground. It is very visible and is along a fence line that is a good flyway. I have had doves come from clear across the field to give me look. If you hunt with a big group of hunters where there is plenty of food you may not want to use it, but if you hunt with a small group or by yourself where your chances are limited I beleive it will improve your odds of bagging some birds. It is also an excellent tool to use for teal hunting.
