Not in SW area, Shawnee Trail's, me and 200 other guys skipping work....it sux'd big time. One guy shot 3 boxes of shells and killed 6 birds. He and 10 other guys were hunting some sunflowers in a patch about 30 yards wide and 100 yards long. Give me a break! Thats the types I delt with all weekend. Oh what fun! Teal season should be a real treat!! :thumbsdown:
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?

Anyone use mojo doves?

I use one and I also place 3 dove decoys on the ground nearby. They practically land on the mojo itself. Its nutz. I will say this, my shot to kill ratio has greatly increased and I don't lose birds anymore because they usually fall right in front of me. The mojo will get you much better looks and easy kill shots. Without it, I'de hate to think what my numbers would be.

man the dove hunting was great this year, we had our limit and in the truck by 8 15, and there was about 15 of us in the field, we use mojo's all the time and i think they are the best thing to happen to dove hunting, they try and light right on top of them. can't wait till this saturday, teal season should be just as good.

Missouri_Quacker, I was down in you neck of the woods for the opener. We had a decent opener but way slower than normal. We had to really move around to find the birds. Luckily I have gotten in with a lot of locals that take me along.

We didn't have them lighting in on the mojo like past years. Then did get birds to fly in our direction, that is all that counts.

We had two mojo doves going on top of 10 foot conduit poles. Absolutely awesome.

I wish ducks would try to land on my mojo duck. :yes:

I wish mojo's would be outlawed in MO just like they are in AR. Duck hunting is about good calling and decoy spreads, not about who can put out more mojo's. :salude:

God knows the mojo debate has been way overdone.

You all know how I feel about mojo's and such....to each his own, you don't like 'em....don't use em. I personlly used two wind operated dove spinners. Probably would of worked great BUT no wind and the poles were'nt tall enough!
Will I have my Lucky duck hen out for teal..........YES! :mrgreen:
