Wind whacker decoy???

Postby Duck_Popper » Sat Oct 26, 2013 1:45 am

I haven't found a thread on them and only a few reviews. However I went into my local shop to grab some wind duk decoys and 3 guys, seperately, told me " all I need is this wind whacker". It is almost the same price as the wind duk decoys, $54.99 and once I hunt with one of these I will never look back. The other 2 guys basically said the same thing be a use I was YouTube and googling the wind whacker and they told me, don't waste your battery, just buy it. Trust me.

Well I bought it but I am wondering what's y'all's opinion. Here is the YouTube link. Let me know. I KEPT THE RECEIPT and still bought 2 wind duk. $176 later lol

These work really well. They can be made fairly easily too. The geese don't like them though. I have used in the rice and when the geese start showing your better off pulling them.

I do have complaints about mine now. When it gets really windy the thing starts spinning around too crazy, but when its that windy its usually a great day anyhow. also the "silent tether" will break, not really a defect just wear and tear, but I recommend ordering a couple spares. All in all I still am very happy with it. In low, medium and high wind it works great, when the wind gets above 20mph the blade spins and then starts rotating around in a circle as well, sometimes hitting the pole or the other blade(I have the 2 blade version). I either take of one of the blades off or pull the thing. I tried to make my own but it didn't come out as good as theirs no matter what I did. Valuable product for the price, lightweight, easy to set up, and good quality.

You don't have to "order" new tethers, just buy women's hair ties. They come like 20 to a cardboard thing for like 99 cents. About the wind, if its like 30 mph, either just use one per stick or put them away and put out a "winduk". For like 10-20 mph, use another hair tie and attach a weight on the bottom, that will hold them down then flying around like a maniac when using 2 blades

They work great, easy to use and haul around!
