What is your guys take on putting 6 spinners out over a water spread? I hunt in Indiana so that gives you an idea of location and how familiar you think birds are with spinners.

Try it and find out. I've hunted days where I wished I had 6 spinners, and I've hunted days where one spinner flared the skittish birds.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

There's lots of spinner haters here which is fine with me. I own one but don't always use it. My best hunts are usually with out it.
One is ok, 6 is a carnival game.

I don't know what to think anymore...I'm still confused with spinner's.. I wish they where outlawed, Do I use ONE? yes. Does it flair ducks or keep them from Finishing?... absolutely! Are they a deadly tool when one knows how to use them? YES! Did the hunting seem to be better when they where banned in Arkansas? Yes! Was the hunting worse for more people than better? YES! Can you go overboard on Mojo's? YES!, Same as people putting out 5+ dozen of decoy's. :no: it just makes you look ignorant and doesn't contribute to your success. But I feel like this with lot's of things..

Go hunt and try using them and not using them. I have found which situations I like them and dont like them. Your never gonna find a perfect line as to when to use them and when to not use them. Ive tried using up to 10 of them as well in a spread. It doesnt eo anything but tell birds hunters are here when you use that many.

It was a serious question guys and I completely agree with everything that has been said even them being outlawed. I think that they work a heck of a lot better in a dry field and no I highly doubt I use all 6 at one time but who knows I might try it and take them down as the birds start flaring haha! I think that it is such a large market now for electronic or motorized decoys that it will be hard for them to outlaw them but then again they can do whatever they want. Just a simple question just to see what you guys thought about the situation.
