I know there is big controversy over the use of powered spinning wing decoys going on and a lot of states are banning them. Do you guys use them?? Think they should be outlawed? I myself use one early in the year for ducks...id say the first 2 weeks or so. If they were outlawed..i wouldnt be upset at all but if its legal i guess ill use it. just remember when you answer this...i am not favoring this at all so slamming me will do you no good. ;)

I have 2 and cant understand why someone thinks they should be outlawed Its not like you can go over your limit either way The only time they made me mad was when I didnt have 1 and the guy next to me did That was brutal

My one buddie swears that last year while using them on water he saw more birds flare than come in to it. I don't know for sure, I haven't used them enough on water to make a noticeable difference. I do know if you have a field that the ducks are using nearby, and you have one out in your field spread, lookout. It's murder.....

Batties, wind or jerk cord it's still up to you to place your decoys and call the birds in then shoot them.

mojo may help but its still up to you.

I've got one, with the remote control. I mainly field hunt for both ducks and geese so the remote comes in handy because I definitely think the robo-duck will flare geese once they're in closer. I think it's best to use it for the farther off draw in abilities & then turn it off once you've got birds coming your way.

I don't always use mine, the hand flapped wings/flag also works well to draw their attention at a distance!

Gotta love it when you've got some water out in the fields!

Here's 2 examples.......................

#1.) I hunted a private lease a couple of years ago, the other guys had 2 robo/mojo and a bunch of dekes. I let the ducks cicle them 9 time and hit 'em w/my RNT & 24 dekes. They shot ZERO, I shot 2!

#2.) I watched a grp of hunters @ the Mississnewa Reservoir. They had 3 robo/mojo and about 100 dekes. I watched (I wasn't hunting, just scouting) as ~100 Mallards circled and circled and circled and circled and flew away! Hmmm?

I think they're GREAT! :coolgleam

Noble- Funny you ask? You ever had them on with not luck and then turned them off and banged em, I have. My experiences in late season have been varieable but pretty solid in the early weeks, also has a lot to do with private or public ground and especially the sun, I hate sunny day robos, looks like to tin pieces going around.

Noble lets get this deer season crap over with so we can bang on some fliers, my two dogs are rested and ready and the duck boat is ready to roll
