Propably 95 percent of the time we leave them on, we tried remotes but it didnt make that big of a difference. Id just let it run unless it seems to be flaring them when they get close.

You hit the nail on the head, and I know you know what you're talking about! No better way to chase the geese away than one of those spinners going. Remote if you can do all three (call, turn off robo, and shoot) it's just hard to think about all three when the geese or ducks are coming in hard and heavy!

last year I had a goose almost run into my spinner. of course here in alsaka the ducks and geese arn't as smart as they are down south. (I've seen a duck fly into a tree and die)
thanks to the men and woman of the United States Coast Guard- without them I would not be here.

Got mine on a remote and it goes off as soon as we can hear or see any geese.

i guess it depends on where you are located. there are alot of places that birds are spinner shy because everyone got one, there are also alot of places they arent that widely used so the birds arnt worried by them.
i've seen a few geese and ducks fly right into my spread and get shot :getdown:
