Alright Fellers,
I am seeking everybody's opinion or maybe past experience on a couple matters. First, has anybody ever had any success or failure using a wood duck call? The cove we have been hunting has produced at least a few woodies every time we have gone. There seems to be a good amount of woodies in the area and I would like the increase our odds if it would be worth the time or money. I have been told by some that the birds are not very responsive to the calls, others have told me that they work just fine.
Second, this may seem ridiculous but has anybody ever used mojo dove in their spread? Due to current circumstances, I do not have my mojo duck but I do happen to have a couple dove. We always work a jerk string but I have heard of some people using dove in their spread. Would I be wasting my time by trying? I look forward to everybody's feedback and overly sarcastic advice. Thanks.

I've never even tried to call a woody and typically don't shoot at them cause they are everywhere at lst. I let them go and work the flocks for our first shots. I do know guys up north that call them and the key is to use a loafing call, not the sound we always hear in flight. Their loafing call is a strung out popping sound sorta, which I'm sure your aware of.

Seen someone on here with mojo dove pics in background behind a pile of ducks. Couldn't hurt I don't guess. I really like the lucky duck rapid flyers. If u have to replace, try those. It is a wing beat, not a spin and really help in thick marsh and woods, even on overcast days.

Dove mojos work great during teal season but we do not use them after teal season.

As for the woodies, the only one I've ever seen around here was on a pond in town.

I heard grebes come into the mojos pretty good.... bolt

I use a dove mojo in my spread for teal and big ducks. I think they just see the flashing not so much the species of the mojo.

Growing up we shot a lot of wood ducks and I personally do not believe you will have success calling them in or getting them to decoy.

For the Mojo question, what you are looking for is to get attention and I think your better bet is the jerk string, but don't do it when they are looking at you. They'll pinpoint you pretty quickly.

PS...If you don't follow the sarcasm of others comments concerning the Grebe, species identification, or why your other posts were removed, you might PM someone to get more insight that can be very helpful in your future endeavors. Best of Luck.

Never had success calling woodies. We typically set up a pair of dekes early on. They either work into edge of spread or just fly by waving goodbye- shooting back their middle finger

That's fair enough.

Now, to be helpful. I use a dove mojo pretty often. I can't tell that it has too much effect, but doesn't seem to hurt. I've definitely never had them set down on top of it like they will a full-size mojo.
