Are you referring to the decoy rabbits that "go off" every 30 seconds or so?? I used the "rigor rabbit" decoy once and was not all that impressed with it. It is the one that vibrates off and on at about 30 second intervals. I had mine set up about 30 or 40 yards in front of me and had a coyote coming on a string right to me. He got to within about 10 feet of the decoy when it went off... like to have scared the bejeepers out of him!! He took off like he had just seen the devil and didn't stop to check on pursuit until he was a hundred yards out. End of coyote and end of decoy.
I think a feather or a piece of fur hung on a limb would work just as well if you want to use a distraction.
