View Full Version : Tip of the day for Motion decoys

Ok Guys.. There has been discussion about using Higdon, or any other shell in high winds.
This tip has been tried and proven last season.

The rod tip that sticks above the back of the decoy is exposed about 1/4 or so..

Take a friction washer.. and place it on top of the decoy.. All you do is push it down till it controlls the decoy so it doesn't look like it's trying to kill itself... I have heard of guys threading the rod and locking down a wing nut which will work.. if you can thread the 1" of rod that's above the welded washer...

I found these worked the best, and you only have to touch them with flat black bar-b-que paint and your done.

at 6 cents each.. they're great.

Just my 6 cents worth..

Trigger...That's a Damn Good Idea! How tough is it to remove the washers when you want to remove the stake and stack the decoys? I was thinkin bout using a thick o'ring but your idea could be better. :Rich: Later, Murph.

As long as there isn't a lot of rust or dirt on the end,,it's pretty easy, but it has enough tension to keep the decoy held down. Usually 4-5 hours and they haven't moved a bit.
In taking them off, just grab and give it a shart yank and they'll come off..
