Those moterized spinners seem to work pretty good. Ive got two wind powered ones that kinda suck but....they work in certain situations. I grew up hunting the CDA Idaho area (I grew up on Benewah Lake) but we never used spinners, we used our backs and our canoe paddles to make our shooting good. The biggest problem in most of the CDA Lake/Chain Lake area is the Goddamn airboats. They should be outlawed in the park especially and most of the people who hunt out of them should learn some hunting ethic. Ive never seen a motorized watercraft disrupt waterfowl like those things. Most of those guys go blow the birds off the middle of the lake when they raft up and they should be ashamed of themselves. Its one thing to go through birds on your way to a spot but its quite another to drop people off and go get the birds up with your airboat. Just hearing those things fire up made my blood boil. I could probably rant about it for another page or two...but I digress. Oh yeah.....I think motorized spinners should be outlawed. No probs with wind powered or jerk cord.
Season bird totals are for those who cannot see the forest for the trees. Count your good days, not your ducks.
