Wind activated spinning wing decoy question

Recommended Posts

Lip'em

Bought a wind powered spinning wing decoy this year. However, at some times it spins way to fast and makes a lot of noise in the wings. Used it the other day and it seemed like it was flaring ducks. Anyone experience any problems like this, and if so know have you had any success in tampering with the original design to quiet the spinning wings. I know I should just buy a mojo but I am just curious if anyone has had a similar problem. Thanks to all who reply.

Our hunting party has one. We love it. I doubt its the noise produced from the wings spinning. An actual ducks wing beat is much louder. Check into other areas as far as flaring ducks. Ducks love movement, alot! Infact, I would bet that they are too focused on the movement to even notice the sound of the wings.

Take the mylar off that I taped to the head, and the blaze orange undersides. Should be good to go after that.

BTW LipEm, rule #1 of waterfowl hunting, never leave a fellow waterfowl hunter behind, waterfowl hunters take care of #1.

All I can say about you going to North Dakota, is rule #1...I hope you flip your truck over and knock your two front teeth out! You selfish s.o.b! You leave me in the trenches taking grenades, John!

I don't hunt with spinners but the word in ND was that the birds were wise to that trick. I saw birds circling a quarter section with three groups of field hunters each with two spinners, they never commited to any of the setups. In fact those groups didn't get any shooting in the 30 minutes I watched and there were alot of mallards working the area, I already had my five drakes.

You and your gosh darn negativity! I'm an ideas man, I thrive on enthusiasm. Hey, maybe if you could call worth a darn I wouldn't be worried about why my spread is flaring ducks! tongue.gif Maybe its not the spinning wing that's flaring the ducks away from our blind, maybe its you! confused.gif

By the way, you forgot rule #2 which always overules rule #1: Never pass up a huge oppurtunity to wackem and stackem even if your best friend can't go with you!

Finally, it's time to change the username buddy, the franchise no longer plays for the wolves; it's time to move on with your life and stop dwelling on the past tongue.gif

Same here. I use my wind activated everytime there is enough wind. I can't stand the sound of the battery powered ones. Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick......

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
