An improved motorized decoy is provided for attracting and holding the attention of a live game animal by simulating the appearance, movements, sounds, and smells of a live game animal or an animal that is native to the habitat of a selected game animal. The decoy includes a decoy body that may be bifurcated into a forward portion and a rear portion, one or more motors, and an optional support member. Together, the motors may produce, either individually or in combination, the following movements: (1) movement of the entire decoy body relative to a fixed ground position, (2) movement of the head and neck portion of the decoy body relative to the rear portion of the decoy body, (3) movement of the ears relative to the head and neck portion, (4) movement of the tail relative to the rear portion, and (5) movement of one or more legs relative to the rear portion. All of the above movements may be produced randomly and/or intermittently by virtue of a programmable modulator or a multi-cycle remote control. All of the above movements may also be produced in sequential order by virtue of a multi-cycle remote control. Additional features include detachable antlers, detachable genitalia, and a scent disperser for distributing a chemical attractant. The invention also includes a method for attracting a game animal to a target area.
