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.

      Did very well on sunfish in 6 ft of water in the area over the weekend. Sunday got 3 man limit of all over 8",  1/3 over 9" and a few 10"s. I lost the biggest sunfish I have ever seen, at the hole. Made the 10's look like chips. It was at least an 11" sunfish.

      No open water in Pike Bay. The dam has been flowing almost all winter! There is now an open channel down the center of the Pike river past the dam as far as just past the Hatchery! Saw a couple fish surfacing in the open water the past couple of evenings (suckers??). Have had geese, golden eyes, and a couple of swans in the open water all week. Cliff
