never seen it but it looks awesome how do you do it?
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.

If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.

This look awsome! Definitly too much movement when there all going, but maybe 1 for every 3-4 normal decoys would look sweet!

They are MovinGoose Decoy Heads from:

http://movingoosedecoys.com/index.html

I have a few. They run about $45 each. I use a feeder and a sentry head. 9 times out of ten, the lead goose flies straight to the sentry. I set mine about 10 yards in front of my blind. I have hunted over them for 3 seasons and they work great and hold up well. I bought the GHG style and fitted them to my two decoys with some glue and crack foam sealer. They have held up with no issues. I did have to cut up some Redhead full bodies to do it, but I am glad I did. They are even quiet so I can use them on windless days, but you only need about 1 head for 10-20 geese. I couldn't imagine rigging a whole spread! Besides, it would make them look like something had spooked them and flare every bird right off. The delay for the head turn is several seconds. I stick the battery up inside the belly to hide it. They were actually pretty easy to rig up. I spent less than 30 minutes for each decoy, but I did have to cut the necks down a bit...

I wish I hadn't seen your post because I now have to hide a hundred bucks from my wife so I can order a couple more sentry heads! Thanks, buddy....(Just kidding) Buy the sentry heads and skip the feeder IMO, you won't regret it.... Good luck!

Hay Blackfoot Down,
Just got mine, I put it in a couple GHG lookers, They don't stand a chance this season.
I got a couple without the batterys and they are cheep that way and I don't have more battries to take care of.

Goose Wizard,
Good with them! I love mine and don't hunt without them. Just be careful in case you take your kid brother with you and he accidentally shoots one in the face! Luckily, I had a couple extra heads and got one to fit. One trick that I did was taking a couple of pieces of duct tape and carefully putting it inside the pockets so the heads fit tighter. When it gets cold, the plastic heads shrink a little and I had one fall out... Also, I tape a piece of cardboard around the batteries to help cut down any extra noise from the battery rattling inside the decoy. Maybe I am just cautious, but I don't want any noise. They do make a little noise, but a slight wind and some calling covers it very well. I learned to place them in my spread exactly where I want the birds to land!!! I think the movement is so life like that it draws them to the decoys with the heads over the plain blocks... Let me know how they work out and I can try to offer some other tricks if you run into trouble.

These things Work, we had Geese landing right next to the lookers with the Moving Heads. We could see the geese just standing there looking at the moving heads, It seems that when the geese are to close to flag that these things do the job. We only have 4 in the spread but I think that another 4 would be deadly. :grooving:

Goosewizard,
Glad they are working as well for you as they have for me. It is awesome to watch the geese stand there looking at them dumbfounded. Last year I had a gander peck at one and I laughed so hard I couldn't shoot the bird when I spooked him from laughing so loud.

PS- Don't shoot all the geese and send some to southern Missouri please! This 72 degree weather isn't migrating any birds!!!!
