Lucky Duck Canada goose flapper

Postby Fsbirdhouse » Mon May 08, 2017 10:30 pm

Does anyone have one of these, or hunted over one, and what do you have to report on them?
Image

I just put in an order for one today. Hunted over a friend's this past season, and his and my X flapper seemed to really draw in the geese well. Another friend hunted over it as well, and bought one the next day.
I'm pretty sure my Son-in-Law ordered one today as well.
Be interesting to get all the guys I know who now have these, and my X flapper as well for a grand total of 5 such motion flappers in a field spread.

This is the closest I've come to your new toy (wing bones are broken at shoulders to afford easy movement):

And it "worked" about like Goose Magnets or other decoys that "fly" in place, which is to say it probably drew some geese closer than they'd otherwise come - but then made them nervous and more difficult to finish.

Which doesn't mean it won't be a hit on Canadas in your part of the country. (Blinds like the one that works so well for you are pretty much teal and spoonbill-only blinds here.) But if things aren't going your way, I'd try pulling that Lucky Duck goose before the ground-bound X-Flappers.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Wow Rick!
That thing looked to be straight out of the hands of 'The Lord High Grand Inquisitor'.
I'm sure it was a quick death, but posed while still on 'The Rack'...Darn!

As to the Lucky Duck?
Well, I always have high hopes for such things, and occasionally they do pay off....but time will tell.

At least he was dead before both his arms were broken. Fellow who built that says his most successful "flyer" has been a Goose Magnet rigged on a pole with a ram that he could land it with as birds approached.

But not with eh?

I think reviews of every bit of gear are always mixed according to the area you're in.

So it is with a lot of attraction ploys. A more realistic setup nearby can reap the rewards of things that help pull birds from distance but then make them nervous in close.

Last season, I twice heard distant thumps that might have been shots.
Probably something our motion decoys pulled down from the stratosphere that got intercepted during their glide path.
Now that I think about it, I'm almost certain.

Now how does that ole song go?

"Oh, Give me land lots of land under flock filled skies
don't crowd me in
Let me hunt thru the wide open country that I love
don't crowd me in

I think it went something like that?

That you've all that unpressured space makes one wonder why you'd feel the need to bother with mechanical gizmos at all?

It's the unfulfilled Tinkerer in me I guess.
In other words, I'm stuck in 'that Stage'.

Just looking for that 'one more goose in the pile'

Perhaps the old adage
"He who dies with the most toys...Wins!"

An addict will always find a reason. No matter how thin!

Pay no attention to me, I'm just jealous of anyone with unpressured birds.

I know you're a busy man hunting at home, but if ever you find yourself near Idaho in early Oct, be glad to find you a seat in the blind, and show you some of those silly birds.
Unless you bring your own, you'd have to settle for shooting an A400 or SX3 on loan.

Truth is that I don't need to shoot at all to enjoy watching Canadas finish. When I lived in the Ohio Valley, we'd let them land, then flush and shoot, partly because the sight was so captivating. (OK, mostly because we found them easier to hit that way than coming in and were too cool to shoot them on the ground - as if a foot or two made it sporting.)

Always make my daily exercise lap past the lake to see what our town Canadas are up to and stopped to watch six wee ones bail off Sweet Chereaux's uncle Franklin's boathouse roof, where they were hatched, a month or two ago.
