I used conduit.

A buddy used rebar and made a fork on the end that goes into the ground, then just shoves the original pc of tubing over the other end of the rebar.

I used those steel green stakes with the steps on the bottom to make it easier to push into the ground...then on top i used a gardner duck whistler that i had broke and attatched it to the top of the pole...it just so happens that those whistles fit perfictly into the hole on the bottom of the duck....and yes i know i rigged the heck out of that thing, but it gets the job done!!!!!

I second the conduit. I have also used a piece of square aluminum tubing that I use if I take the boat.

I built two in the welding shop at school and the mojo decoy fits it well, just a little loose. Saved me 60-80 bucks on buying the 10' extension pole.

just go to the local hardware store and get a peice of 3/4 inch conduit they come in 10ft lengths i think? but its like 10 bucks for that much and you can make it as long as your want. then just paint it simple as that and you dont have to fork over 60 bucks basically the same thing....

I was at Game Fair this past weekend and looked at those extensions, which look very flimsy. I hunt mostly out of a blinded boat. the bottom is very mucky also. The actual extension looks like it would not provide any stability. I will be making my own extension pole for my mojo.

1 inch metal conduit then spray it a matte color. Works marvels to get it up 10 ft

I used 1" square alluimium tubing, welded a foot peg on it and bolted a 3/4 insert at the top. affordable and will not rust. also very strong

I picked up a 10 ft section of 3/4 inch metal conduit and lightly hammered one of the ends so that the baby mojo post on the bottom fit better into it. I threw on my waders and went to a small lake near my house and set it up. That works perfect. I thought there would be some wobble in the conduit, but it was perfectly still. I highly recommend this $4.00 idea to an extension pole for the baby mojo. I hunt out of a boat and it is mucky on the bottom of the lakes I hunt.

I have a couple different lengths of conduit pipes I take with as water depths may vary depending on the spot. I bought a rubber mallet to pound the pipes in (a lot easier than trying to push them in). Just remember that the decoy makes the setup top-heavy (especially on windy days) and you may need extra length to bury the pole deep in the bottom to keep it from tilting especially with that soft mucky bottom thats in so many ducky spots.

I did the same thing but painted the pole flat black but reed paint would do as well to make it not stick out as much.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
