best Mojo decoy placement
We let the birds dictate weather we use them. But usually we do. We often use 3 and occasionally up to 5. We also use jerkstrings and quiver butts.
I think hunters give these birds with a brain the size of an acorn too much credit. I have witnessed local birds wise up to them, but I think we are too close to no-man land for the young of the year migrators to have a clue.
My general rule of thumb is,,,,,local birds, find where they want to be and you don't need much for decoys or motion. Migrators,,,,,be visible, make them think you are the birds that know where they want to be.
think I'll get one of the smaller models when i do replace it. im thinkin even the teal would do the job.
I personally think mojos work better in the fields for ducks but also have a place in small water.
I set mine on the edge of the open hole.
i use mine with another decoy that has it's wing set. most of the time i got my spinning wing shut off. the only time i seen my spinning wing work is when it's sunny and blue bird day out.
I like it off to one side or the other if the wind/setup allows. The birds will most likely land or at least commit to the mojo so that should be where you plan on taking them.
