Default robotic ducks for waterfowling???

so i went out and picked up a nice greenhead roboduck. apparently these things work great bringing in birds close for sure shots. last year on the opener, some guy had one of these spinning and was bringing ducks in all day!!!!!!

what do you hunters out there think? have any of you ever used them? do they work as well over land as they do over water?

thanks!

They work great over water or in the fields. They attract just about everything, pidgeons, hawks, owls, geese and ducks.LOL

couple tips.. position the decoy in a way that when birds are passing over they arent looking towards your hide,, they stare at them! Get it as lose too possible too your hide. Build yourself a longer pole too mount it on,, comes in handy in water situations.
