I hunt the refuges so weight and space matter. A crutch is light, adjustable, a stake for the jerk string and can be used to wrap my jerk string around. I can find crutches at the local junk store for cheap! I have a handi caped friend and with a little thought this could work well for him as a walking aid. A removeable circle on the bottom pinned in place like a ski pole. Oh the posibilities....
My thought is to use the crutch as the end anchor of the jerk line. The end of the six foot bungie will be near at ducks bill. The line will then continue down through an eyelet and back to the blind with swivels for other decoys and feeder butts. A few shaker butts to the side and and you have set a banquet in the calm water .There's no reason you couldn't use two crutchs per jerk line. That would add a change of direction I've wanted instead of all my motion in a strieght line. All in an easy to carry package. In fact with a couple clips I can attach them on top of two bags of decoys to form a more solid raft for the other gear I take to the blind. With more thought my MI buddy could have a bag in front and one behind thus two hand rails between the bags. Oh the posibilities...
The decoy! Moto ducks have removable feet! A pair of feet! Drilled and glued into place would splash more water and give the orange feet in the air!
