This is going to be my first season with a mojo Gadwall & a mojo teal. I've read/watched all the interwebs & You Tube stuff and am planning to place the mojos to either side of our blind. Since I haven't really hunted over them before when people say "mojos flair birds" on some days or later in the season dumb question do you pull the mojos right away? Move them farther out? I know its not exact by any means and birds will do what they want if you're not on the X but trying to get my head around it so I have a plan. I don't have remotes or anything like that just the mojos and a dream of easy limits and fall in your lap retrieves...

The best MOJO is the one you forget at the house...

Just kidding, I've never gave them a real chance so idk.

They work much better in a field than over water. I run mine the whole hunt for the first week of the season. After that I run them until sunrise and then pull them or at least turn them off.

You are much better off running a jerk string all the time.

Good to know - most of our hunting is over small tanks so that's good info re land vs water. Maybe I'll run one a few hundred yards behind the tank in our deer food plot? confused2

Deer don't decoy to mojos that I know of.

Lol. Use the MOJO early and the moment you notice birds are not working or flaring pull it. You could put it (or a dove mojo) behind you on land 20 yards or so away to catch their attention. When they were talking about mojos working in fields, they meant on field hunts for ducks like they do up north when birds are feeding in agricultural fields.

Spend the money for the remote. I run a mojo all season over small water and rarely have issues flaring birds.

Mojo's work well, the key is the habitat and species you're hunting. Big water, marsh, flooded timber and ag, coast, they def pull birds. but I've seen exceptions to the rule, On water, geese and sprigs typically avoid them like the plague though I've had both drop in a spread on occasion. Misfits, confused, non-conformist, retarded, young and stupid, whatever, they won't make the same mistake twice.

It really depends. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.

Dont bother any more unless I expect a heavy dose of greenwings.

Last year it was all greenwings, gadwall, ringers & pintails but I didn't hunt as much early season. Maybe I'll mount one on each end of the canoe as well when we are on the river. up

I saw a guy with mojos running in his rod holders on his boat once while hunting. I forgot to ask him how that worked out when I saw him later at the ramp.

I thought that's what those spud pole holes on the boat were for.
