Always handle your decoy with rubber gloves and liberally apply scent-eliminating spray to the deke. Bucks usually approach other bucks head-on and does from behind. With that in mind, place your buck decoy angling or facing directly toward your stand, upwind, 15 to 20 yards away. A doe decoy should face away from your stand 20 to 25 yards away and upwind. For added realism, get a set of plastic deer eyes from your taxidermist and add them to your decoy.
