Mojos? Legal or Not?

Postby ksfowler25 » Mon May 20, 2013 5:11 pm

Was reading thru the rules and regulations and from what i can tell it is illegal to use mojos and other motored decoys. Thought maybe i could get some insight on this. Thanks for any and all help with this!

For the first few weeks of the season, you cannot use motorized decoys. After that, you cannot use them on wmas but lakes, rivers, private property etc you can unless they changed that recently.

I've had a few but they always break so easy. My duck commander one broke the first time I look it out, which is why I'm so hard on the show cause it pissed me off

unless they changed it in mn for this season goldfish is right on. never on wmas but after (im assuming he is right since I cant remember 100% of hand) the 2nd weekend they can be used on lakes and rivers. I am torn on how much to use them anyways this year... last year it seemed like a toss up on if it sucked em in or flaired them... thinking use them for the early low light situations then pull them, but that's just speculation... its hard to say. Field spreads, always though imo.

Last year they also allowed remotes I thought, which was new. I'd need to double check the regs on that though

Probably cheaper than paying the $100 they want in the store for a remote control decoy. I've got a few busted decoys that would probably work good to cut up and put over one too.

Remotes are key, especially ifyou are hunting ducks and geese. I have had very few geese commit all the way with spinners going. There are certainly exceptions to the rule though.
