Gotta Question about Mojo duck vs Super Mojo vs Lucky Duck

Postby Will_Hunt_4_Food » Mon Dec 26, 2011 7:00 pm

OK...my son and I both received 100 gift cards to Cabelas. We have decided to pool our money together and buy ourselves a motion decoy. My question is which one should we get. We are trying to decide between the Super Mojo vs 2 Baby Mojos vs the regular Mojo vs the Edge by Expedite Super Lucky Duck. Any opinions???

Baby mojos. They are light as a feather, wings are light and they have the longest batt life. Plus u can get the 2 pack under 100. Good luck

I'll let the others chime in on brands. I highly suggest you get one that's rechargeable
and has a remote. I have 2 older ones that eat batteries. Also look at how the wings
attach. What looks simple in the store can be very difficult in cold weather. Set screws
are impossible to find when you drop them. That's all I can think of off the top of my head.
Good Luck

Baby mojo's no question. Super light, easiest to pound in the ground late season as significantly lighter...size doesn't matter with Mojos in my experience

If you can, get them with the intermittent timer so that they go on and off at different intervals.

I've been less than impressed with my older Super Lucky Duck.

definitely get one with a remote.

Ive been running mojo mallards in standard size for years no complaints. The little ones work just fine also. GET A REMOTE on what ever you buy. Sometimes you can get the hen versions alot cheaper than the standard drake. Just dont forget the remote. I will never own a spinner without one again.

I would recommend the new mojo with the quick attach wings. No more losing wing nuts in the dark. Also, very quiet. Baby mojos work good also, Remote is a must.
For geese....... This motion decoy is a must. works like you wouldnt believe. Check it out

So you have actually used this goose decoy? It looks good but 269.00 is a lot of money for one decoy. Pretty cool though.

Yeah, i have one, and its the best confidence decoy around. I primarily hunt geese and its a pretty "gear intensive" sport. $269 is a small percentage of your gear cost, and once you learn how and when to use it, you will have geese landing at your feet. The flapper draws their eyes to the motion and off of your hide. Before i used the flapper, Geese would sometimes land in the pocket 25 to 35 yards out..... but most would circle and try and pick out your hide. Now that ive added this to the spread, I have had several groups land right at our feet. A couple of geese landed 7 feet from my dog the other day. He didnt move, and i hit the button on the remote from inside my Power-hunter and it drew their eyes off the dog. they just walked out into the spread and started feeding...... Its worth the price...... Plus, i can call and flap at the same time. You cant do that with a Flag.

For the guys with the remotes, when do you turn them off and on? I've heard to turn them off if you have geese working, but do you turn them off once ducks are locked on you as well?

I run mine unless someone wants to shoot geese that are coming in. Sometimes I shut mine off untill I see birds then Ill hit them with a little motion. If its real sunny I shut it off cause I think the fluttering shadow it throws spooks birds. It this situation Ill wait till birds are flying by and hit the spinner to catch thier attention and usually shut it back off. I dont like the intermitient setting. Ive had it turn on just as birds were getting real close and spooked them.

Ditto having a remote on your spinner to turn off for approaching geese or intermittently hit to catch attention of far out ducks...like a hail call.

We get to the point where every spread on a given body of water has at least one spinner. I think late season ducks become wary of them. That's when it is good to use to grab ducks' attention and then shut off as they work in. Some days, they like the spinner...some days not so much. We are talking about birds that have been around a while. New northern arrivals are more susceptible to the spinner's lure, I think.

a spinner to fresh northern birds is like crack...or a passed out homless man. I.e real hard to resist
