Exactly. This is the only highball you should worry about.

I think I have a useful tips for everyone. I hunt in the Southeast MO region. So as you imagine I hunt rice patties and flooded timber. I LOVE using Mojos. Sometimes I use between 2-6 of them. BUT, if you were to ask me if id rather have 5 mojos or 1 jerk string. Id go with the jerk string every single time. I can not count how many times just tugging on a jerk string worked. First of all when the ducks are flying high, yes mojos will def get their attention, but when you jerking your stringer and making big ripples and splashing, it looks so much more realistic and alot of the time when greenheads cant decide if they want in the hole, ill just lightly tug on the string with butt ups and feeders to make it look like theyre feeding. Works almost everytime. I encourage all of you to try it. GOOD HUNTING!

this is a last hope tip. i closed the tail gate of my truck on my waders right at the top of the boot and put a nice 3 inch
gash in it. no repair kit of course(have one now!!!) i rembered a tip for emergency glue to reattach a fishing rod guide
(taps tips?) in field and stream or sports afield. use a match to melt a six pack ring-- the burning plastic drips onto the
tear and seals it up, far from perfect but it got me thru the day damp but not soaked.



always be nice-he may be a better shot

Quit blowing that mallard hen call so loud and high ball should never be more than 5 notes.

Before using a new set of decoys, spray about two coats of a clear coat on them. especially if you hunt swamps or beaver timbers. that rank water will take the pain right off of them.

I was hunting some puddles and a couple of times we had some birds circling in the late-morning that changed their minds and took off for no apparent reason...I was thinking they may have been scared or shy because of our mojos...I'm a teenager looking for some advice?

No mojos late in the season, they will flare birds.

A helpful tip, use the water to see reflections of ducks in the air rather than staring straight up

If you havent seen any ducks for a while, walk out into the decoys without a gun and you'll be covered up in ducks immediately. Never fails.

I've heard this quite a bit, but in my experience killing late season, weary mallards and geese, they need constant calling to finish them. Yes when they're circling or going away I hammer em' to get em' to cut back around but light calling definitely helps finish birds, I don't care what anyone says!

Here is my contribution, and i have a question.

Instead of buying a jetsled, buy a mortar sled from lowes. I know its been posted, but here is the part# and direct link to it.

My question is, when hunting pintails, does having greenheads in your decoy spread scare the pintails away? My buddy says that pintails are racist and dont like to hang out with greenheads. The last few weeks we were seeing nothing but pintails. My friend brought a bunch of greenheads and they didnt seem to drop in as much as they were without them.
