Never used the stuff. But if you were goose hunting I would expect the birds to see your decoys long before they spot that fake corn. If the birds were interested I am not sure it helps or hinders.

Ya I am thinking it should be plastic corn and not the real thing...could be expensive.

We tried some of that years ago. I can't say that it helped, but it did look good. We made the mistake of tying each ear on a long piece of string/cord, thinking that would make picking it up easy.

Big mistake. The second time we tried to pull the ears out of a bag, they were in one big knot. I have no idea where the plastic ears are today.

Actually, I like this kind of thing. Mostly because it provides one more thing to “mess” with. :mrgreen:

:thumbsup: :salude: I am not a big fan of gimics. Location, weather, and other things contribute to a limit of birds more than gimics. I still do not even use a robo duck.

there ain't no way that'll work!

It's a gimic to lure in hunters with money not ducks.

When I was a youngster some folks used fake corn, back then it was carved out of wood, and I don't recall it being more effective, than a spread wihout it being used. But again some folks swore by it, may be it just made the hunters more confident in the spread than the birds.

I dunno about fake corn, but next year we're going to have about 5 acres of real corn planted. Hope THAT works.

The plastic corn is just a gimmic, what attracts ducks to a baited pond is the rotten smell that decomposing corn, pot., etc...

there is a guy down here in louisiana that markets a scent or decomposing corn, potato. that is made from all synthetic materials, thus it is legal from all legal aspects, I have hunted over it this year and it really works to get the birds closer in. You really see the effect on the birds that want to circle just out of range, it is the difference in being out of breath from calling or watching your dog retrieve the bird.

hope that this helps.
