Picked one of these up at Academy today, figured I'd give it a shot for ten bucks.

Anybody have any of them on their deeks?

Also, looking for some good spots to hunt, not really looking for general area, more like exact location...
Don't really feel llke scouting. :wink:

I've never tried one, but definitely not opposed. I'd put a few of those out before I'd use a mojo. :grooving:

It moved the deek pretty good in the bath tub.

You don't use mojo's??? I leave home with no more than 10... especially when hunting for wood ducks

I just picked up a dozen of the new mojo wood ducks, going to crush em this year! Im hitting all the spots I asked about on the internet, and hoping to kill those cinnamon teal in Dixie with my mallard call I got from duck commanders after watching their tv show.


Haha jokes aside, that's not a bad contraption to try. I use a wobble decoy, creates some motion in the spread on calm mornings. Seems like it would work well.

I have one. I put it on a magnum mallard. Make sure that the flap right behind the prop is turned slightly to one side or the other and it'll work great.

Thanks for the tip... does it just do circles around the anchor chord?

Yes. It'll swim in a circle. So make sure that you give it more room than your other decoys. I usually get about four hours of run time from mine before it starts to slow down.

I have a couple of them, forget the make but they're orange.
I've only tried them out on a teal deke and a goose deke. I knew I was pushing it with the goose deke and ya, it didn't even move. The teal however was pretty much on a plane! I'm sure on a mallard or similar sized duck it will be just about perfect

How well do they work around aquatic grass?

I've only used mine in floating vegetation, but had no problem

Lol.... Ironic that you ask.

I put it in the water and it really went nowhere. Keep in mind the wind was insane..... So I pick it up out of the water and the propellar on it was gone. Not sure what happened, but I would probably give it another shot.

I shouldn't have used it at all, as the water was so choppy.
