First Four Days in Recap

Postby wratliffky » Sun Nov 27, 2011 8:17 am

Hunted all four days on a farm pond 2 minutes from the house here in Central KY. Killed 4 in 4 days but its not all about the numbers its about the good times in the blind with our dog on her 9th season, and just being able to continue watching her do her thing is enough to satisfy me!
Thursday: One duck first mounting quality Drake Woodie.
Friday/Saturday: Skunked both days saw a ton of ducks and geese just couldnt get them to finish. But did get one great picture of Katie.
Sunday: Killed 3 hen woodies in the rain this morning. Might get more pictures this afternoon.
I hope everyone had as much fun this weekend as we did.

That sucks. We aren't seeing anywhere close to that many birds obviously because we are Central Ky but we've been seeing anywhere from 75-100 in the morning and afternoon. Mostly woodies and the occasional mallard.

What's the saturation curve for mojos?

You boys need a calling lesson from Jduck, then maybe you wouldn't need so many mojos.

bahahaha jesus that's over kill lol. With the light switch thing, how can you do a automatic timer for your mojos....like on 8 seconds off for 10, something like that?

This isn't the most cost effective way to cycle your spinners, but its pretty easy to hook up and go when using Mojo brand.

Hard wiring to a switch is the way to go, like outlaw said.

if we see geese we turn them off booney. when you use em enough you will learn that easily. 19 is not overkill, i wish we had 40. we have 4 good callers in the blind. its a dry bean field 200 yrds off the road. you wouldnt think we would ever kill a duck and if they outlaw mojos we are screwed. why do we use so many? because we compete with the neighboring blinds. if they are running 10 we go with more. and so on and so on. it's a numbers game. we have around 500 decoys out also. with 5 blinds in 1000 yard stretch all with large spreads the ducks will lock on to the large spread and large number of mojos and 9 times out of 10 the blind with the most will do the best. and every blind out there sets them up the same way.

Outlaw, have you seen the hot wings decoy tree? I have yet to see one in person, but if anybody has one it's probably you.
