Anyone use one of these or have had a experiance with one? I have been contemplateing on getting one to add to our snow goose arsenal this yr. I was wondering what kind of success or lack of people are encountering useing them?

I've heard that they are very effective for snows (moreso than for ducks / canadas)

That said I have never seen them in use or even hunted snows so what do I know. Hoping to change that this spring but without the kindness of strangers our group of 4 won't be decoying birds but instead sneaking / pass shooting.

We use one when we go to canada in the fall. They work great for ducks! The ducks will just pile in under that thing. The geese, both canadas and snows seem to be very shy of it. If we set up for snows we will not put it up or we will take it down after the early flight of ducks. Just my experience.

It is a duck killer!

They look sweet, that's for sure. Roboducks and Vortex machines. Who needs wind anymore? Certainly are spendy but you can get some great hunts in under them.

IceHawk if you get one and use it let us know how it went.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
