" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Spend the money and buy a Flutter Wing from Aero Outdoors.  Works when it's windy or when it's not and you really need some movement.  besides with a F/W, you can spin it when you need to, and let it sit while the birds are close, the ducks will flare off of a WindDuk when they get close and it's still spinning.

worth every penny.  skip buying your other dekes if that frees up the $$ for you.  Guaranteed this will put more ducks in your face than a few widgeon or pintail decoys.

its not about spending the money. I have very nice decoys, but i am not about to spend over a hundred dollars for one single decoy when i have not seen it in real life or seen the effects of using it. i pretty much just need more coaxing. I am curious about getting one but need more positive feedback before i make that jump. I really do appriciate your guys opinions though. How long have you been using yours for general disarray

2 full seasons.  I understand spending that much on one decoy can make a guy cringe but it's the real deal.  As long as you're hunting water that isn't too deep or rocky to push a stake into the bottom. 

I've got a Winduk, it sits in my garage and hasn't been out in 2 seasons.

Humm, sure would like to take a look at that win duk. if your not using it, would you like to free up some space in the garage? maybe messing with a cheeper version would get me to by the bigger and better deal. I live right on a lake and work right on the straits and would like to see if it works. i would be nice to test it out and see how it works.

We use one, and as long as there is wind to spin the wings, it works great.
