I bought my from Cabela's. Works good IF you remember to pull the d*mn thing when the birds are working ya right. LOL
Each X holds 4 deeks. comes with 3 X and stake w/cord. Im using more of the wind powered  deeks (4)this season. A couple floaters and the others on poles.

Good shootin'

I just found some "camo" 1/4" bungee cord at Harbor Freight tools in the form of a truck cargo net, for ten bucks. I brought the camo/green/brown bungee net home, and started un-tying the whole net. No clips or hog rings, just loose knots. I ended up with five pieces. The three long ones are well over twenty five feet long each! I am going to make a bungee duck "bedoinker", I will pull the deekes to me, stand on the bungee, and then let it slip and drag my deekes away as birds approach. Hope it works!

Sounds like a good plan,  I hunted with a fellow who had a feeder duck on a pole and as we pulled the string its legs would flip up water as if the duck was actually feeding.  Seemed to work great.  Has anyone ever seen one of these.  Thanks for the feedback.

 Oh, I see what I was doing wrong now, why didn't someone say TIE END OF STRING TO DECOY :bash:
I spent most of my money on beer and women.
The rest I just wasted.
