I have two of them, but seems like I have more luck with a jerk cord.

I occasionally use them for teal season, but if I do I actually use a mojo dove. Works just as well.

As for hunting big ducks with 'em, we look at em as training wheels on a crotch rocket. If you're terrible, they might help. If you have the slightest clue what you're doing, they'll just get in the way.

We use them Super Wonderduck Super Tornados motion decoys. Movement on the water is lot better than most spinning wings.

Cannon, just another killing down on the corner......corners. Can't wait to retire, so I can get my place built over @ greers and move west !!!!!!!!! :>) Only work there,( Purple and white jets), don't live there. Where I live, we have a mayor that plays the skin flute.

Greers is a nice place. Make sure to include a basement in those plans, though. That's tornado alley, for sure. My brother-in-law had a cabin destroyed by tornado up there. He replaced it with a very nice, large house. Said house was then hit by another tornado.

Good luck with the birds this season.

Just barely. 59 seconds after you cross the stateline on Malone. Hind sight is always better. 20 years ago, just getting out of memphis was the the thing to do. How I wish I'd known to go deeper/farther south kinda like Coldwater or even Sardis.
The ride to work might have been longer, but the smell and the view would have been better.
