BEST PEICE OF EQUITMENT ON THE FIELD, in my opinion MOJOs are my number one thing in my spread and if your on a budget. like i was at first i bought 2 of those MOJO doves and they imatate a blue wing teal but now they got the MOJO teal so. what ever im justs saying that if yuo dont want to spend 150 buck on the Mojo duck you can get those Dove decoys, ducks wont no the diffarace, The Doves are on sale at cabelas for 40 buck so,,,there yah go



Good Luck.

gads and bald pates certainly won't hurt anything, but they aren't necessary to kill ducks.... I like using greenwing tealblocks because, for one thing,I like a bit of size variety, and I love it when teal buzz the decoys....

Most puddle ducks will decoy to mallards blocks fairly well.... heck puddlers will decoy to diver decoys pretty well, but the reverse isn't necessarily true...from what I've seen divers are more decoy critical than puddlers....
You know speaking of that, something I have found to hold true, especially in fairly big water and open rivers, is that if you mix duck and goose floaters (yes I know it isn't natural.... but it works and thats the point)... I've found that even mallards seem to prefer landing near the geese even over landing with their own kind.

I agree with you Gordon about divers being super picky. I've also found that pintails, when in larger groups) tend to be fairly picky as well. Same goes for black ducks. Wood ducks are extremely choosy too.... but even at that most of the time they will just buzz you once and be gone... kill them whenever they are in range because you often don't get a second chance.
I'll second that about wood ducks. From the experiences I've had with woodies, when you're hunting public land; say another hunter shoots and gets all of the wood ducks up off the water in the area. Those mojo mallards im guessing looks like other ducks getting up off the water, so wood ducks which like to group up from what i've seen, will fly straight towards that mojo.

And wood ducks around here will NOT stop for anything. If they're say 75 to 100 yards out, and they see you're spread and you hit em with the call, its very tough to get them to change their mind. We did get two pairs of wood ducks last year that buzzed our spread 4 times before leaving... very surprising.

hot buys hit with krylan matte clear coat will last you for a few years longer. agreed with everyone else about mallards decoys. i like to put some oversized pinneys or geese on the edge to get the higher profile and a lot of white to catch attention of those migrators out in the middle of nowhere.
