Default Quack Attack

Have any of yall seen the commercail for this stuff or seen it in a catolog i thinks it might possibly be the biggest waste of money ive ever seen. maybe im just dumb but i dont think ducks can smell because if they did wouldnt the duck commander and all of us wingshotters be wearing scentblock.

Let me know what yall think on QUACK ATTACK

The duck commander was the first person I ever heard of talking about a duck's sense of smell.

I've never seen any scientific data to back it up one way or the other... but that man has lived longer than I have (twice as long almost exactly) and shot probably 5-6 times as many ducks (and thats probalby a low number)... so I respect his experience and knowledge a lot.

It does make me wonder though how ducks can find food... short of seeing it from the sky.... maybe they just kinda fly around until they find some... who knows...

If ducks and geese can't smell how do you think they can find corn covered by several inches of snow?

i don't think ducks have a very acute sense of smell. i think how they find food is just like a guess and check style but who knows

Duck hunting is a very minded game in most part of the world. The players uses a gun to any of the moving ducks.

If ducks and geese have that acute a sense of smell, why do hunters set their decoys out in such a fashion that the ducks/geese land into the wind and toward the hunters ?

I have shot a considerable number of ducks in my day, and i still prefer to have them fly into my blind area. The only times i have ever seem them spooked, was because of movement in or around the blind area.

This is a great product! It is great for the people that will sell it, and separate you from your money! I'm calling COMPLETE BULLCHIT! Not worth 5 cents.

I don't think ducks can smell good enough to detect human odor but I believe they can smell food, especially in the water. I wouldn't be surprised if the stuff worked.

I've got a pond that I plant something in every year and this year I'm doing japanese millit again. I planted the muddy areas about a week ago and this past thursday I threw some seed in the water just to see if it would come up. By the next morning there was 15 woodducks on it.
