DECOY STAKES

Postby CALLEMQUACKTN » Sat Apr 30, 2005 4:54 pm

Has anybody tried using cut alum. arrows for decoy stakes? I have heard that they work good & are lite.

Thanks for the help I might try some of them to. I used to do a lot of arrow fletching so I have some setting around.

I finally drilled the holes in my shell decoys so I could put them on stakes. I used the alum. arrows like I had said before. They look great. They are also very lite.

I have used old aluminum shafts with field points on them for turkey decoys in the past and yes, they do work really well but back then there where no such thing as the Universal Motion Stakes and for the cost and time involved the UMS are much more affordable than converting arrows plus they are also easier to push into hard/slightly frozen ground then the arrows plus the movement is better. When the ground really get hard out comes the portable drill!

I love my ghg motion stakes. They work like a charm, add TONs of motion to a spread. Makes the decoys come to life. They're also very affordable.

They only make one size motion stake, but It should fit a mag.
Try this link...

That's gotta be the biggest link I've ever seen.
