I think it would work killer but would be a pain to haul out there and I'm not sure how well you can stake the thing down. It produces an awful lot of torque and I could see it "unstaking" itself. Plus using a regular spinner seems to work just fine for now.
Tonight I read an article that it works awesome, but sucks in a way, guy from Arkansas says that they work so well, you have to shoot soon otherwise the "vortex" of ducks keep coming and eventually they can't keep up..........the second mojo swings around and wacks the actual duck becasue they get caught chasing one on the pole. Don't know if it is true, but sounds possible. I'm interested in finding out more. I did make the trip to Cabelas and saw it and liked it!
YES, the ducks wacked by the vortex itself must be included in your daily possession limit. I saw a guy in a blind next to me last year that got a ticket for that very thing.....he kept screaming 'the remote won't work, the remote won't work'....meanwhile the vortex went to piling up ducks with reckless abandoned...it was a 'crying' shame, they gave him a ticket and confiscated the circus midgets that hold the vortex in place....
I donty knwo if you guys are hunting water or what but they really dont work in fields. Also for me it would just be something that would brake and fall apart on me. ( Cause I bet the hell out of my hunting gear) :wink: Like lucky ducks I have taken back 3 of them. From **** going wrong on them. :lol: Thats why I dont use those anymore either.
I haven't used one but have hunted next to one, and like Robo's, they work, but aren't magic. The guys next to us had a better blind, were able to clear a larger hole in the ice, and had the vortex. They killed a few more birds than us, but we also were able to work in birds all day, some even came away from them to us, with our spread of no robos.
I have heard reports on them much like those of spinners... At times they are dynamite and at other times a duck won't come near one.
Personally, I think they're probably ok, but would never hunt with one in my spread as the day I need a contraption like that to hunt and kill ducks I'll be out of the sport. Just takes away from the "hunting" aspect of hunting.
Very true! Also on those slow days yo can take the spinner off and attach a couple baseballs......you got your own pitching machine. The possibilities for this thing are endless....what it was intended for just doesn't happen to be one of them...LMAO
