Air Lucky on Vortex

10 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone here uses the air lucky decoys on the spinning vortex's? I heard that it can be done and at a fraction of the cost of a robo decoy.

Everyone's well aware of their mixed results on an air lucky, one wing spins, need lots of wind and post too short. Yet lots swear by them and to each his own.

Also if your using a vortex I would guess that is a no no for public land since it's battery operated am I right?

At Cabelas, they had the air lucky duck going on the vortex and it looked just like the robo ducks on them.

quite certain the air-lucky is NOT worth the cost / hassle of using one.

my experience hunting over them (hunting buddy has one, not me) has been that if you're able to get one wing spinning you are ahead of the game...and that itself takes a mild hurricane to accomplish.

Which cabelas? I'd like to see it with AIr luckies in action. The cabelas video shows motorized robo's. I'd consider buying it if I can use my Air's but the +200 additional for 2 more motorized ducks makes it kind of steep.

We used an Air Lucky by Edge Expedite and it works just fine. I have a mojo too, and together they seemed to really pull in the birds. Not too mention, it is powered by the wind, so you can use it early too.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
