Motion decoy advice???

Postby BrentPrice » Thu Dec 16, 2010 3:15 pm

Has anyone had any experience with the "baby" mojo mallards? I want to add a motion decoy to my spread and I think this would look great out there. And its cheaper than the original Mojo mallard :thumbsup:

Or is there any other motion decoys y'all would recomend better? Thanks for the info!

Me and my brother usually run two of them. Got them earlier in the year from Cabela's, they were 99$ a pair. I really like them. Smaller than a standard mojo, but just as effective. Try rigging up a jerk string. It can be just as effective as teh mojo. I got one and it really helps on the really calm days.

That's good to know they are just as effective as the original Mojo. I have a jerk line rigged up, I just rarely use it because the only way I know how to secure it is with a boat anchor, and that adds a lot of extra weight to the gear when I have to carry in. Outside of strapping to a flooded tree, do you know of any other way to 'anchor' a jerk line with 4 decoys?

I hunted with my brother and a buddy in TN 2 weeks ago for their opener and they were using a diver duck that shoots water from its butt every couple seconds. Seemed to do great for rippling the water, but I think the mojo wings would attract a little more attention??

I used extra decoy weights as my anchor. You could use quick crete and just put it in some small dixie or plastic cups. Or you could just buy a jerk rig setup from Cabela's.
