Homemade Fedding Pulsator Decoy

Postby TX-DUX31 » Sun Jan 13, 2013 5:03 pm

I have read several post about making a replica of the Higdon Pulsator 2 Feeder Decoy. I tried it out and made some changes and have come up with a great decoy. I have been using them for a couple months now and they work great. I have several spare parts and was wondering if anyone would be interested in purchasing a complete pulsator decoy system. I have attached a couple video links so you can see the amount of motion that these add to the spread. I am looking to sell these for about half of what the Higdon cost. PM me if interested.

It is me breathing. I guess I held my phone a little to close.


The decoy is powered by a 12v sealed battery in a waterproof bow that acts as the weight for the decoy.

I'm looking to get $75 plus shipping. This will not include a battery. The battery just makes it to hard to ship.

The longest I have run one was 5 hours and it was still runningstrong. These run on a sealed 12v battery. The battery and waterproof box act as the weight in the water. They are almost identicle to the Higdon Pulsator II. I use a blige pump, turn signal blinker, and heavy duty dry box. Of course I also use some misc. wire and connectors.
