Spinning Wing Decoys

17 posts in this topic

Considering adding a floater or another pole mounted spinning wing decoy. What do you think?

Has heard anyhting about the spinning wing teal?

One more thing, do any of you guys use multiple spinning wings and has it improved your hunts and do you prefer drake or hens?

I hope they were wind powered spinning wing decoys.

We use 2 or even 3 sometimes in the field.

My experience the geese won't come anywhere near you with the mojos going.

page 28 of the standard Hunting Regs

no wireless (no radio run electronics)

you can hardwire it though w/ speaker wire and a toggle switch.

you can run them on vexilar batteries just gator clip the other end to were you hook the motor to the battery inside the duck my buddy wrapped his wire to protect it better and he just lets it sink and he has a fuse about a foot from the battery I think its a 15 amper

So he has to run a lead all the way from the decoy right to wherever he is sitting? Is this what your saying?

Dan Z,

Just cause I'm a "LITTLE" slow. lol. Let's go through this one more time as I can't picture where everyhting goes. By the way, I plan on rigging mine for field hunting primnarily.

Help me create where the wires go. I'm getting confused as it seems like you'd have to unhook the wires that run from the switch to the motor.

toggle switch.....connects to.......wire.....connects to......battery.....connects to.........motor.....

Does that sound right?

I'll talk you through it, I haven't done this but it isn't a bad idea, other than the hassel of running the wires back to the boat.

Take the battery out of the decoy

Hook 1 wire up to the Red wire coming from the motor

Other wire to the Black wire coming from the motor

Run the wires down the pole and back to the boat.

In the wire that is hooked up to the Red lead, hook up 1 side of toggle switch, other side of toggle goes to Red battery terminal. The black wire hooks directly to the battery.

The other way to do this would be a "switch loop" where the battery stays in the decoy, you hook up the black wire from the motor to the black battery terminal. Then hook 1 wire from the speaker wire to the red terminal and the other wire too the red motor wire. In the boat you would hook the opposite end of the wires up to the toggle switch.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
