For years I've watched motion decoys for ducks evolve. I've seen them spin, shake and splash but they just never seemed realistic to me. I came across this motion decoy and would love to hear your feedback on how you think it looks from a realism standpoint. In my opinion, it's simply the most realistic motion I have ever seen from a duck decoy.

Looks cool too bad that price is outrageous. $250 for one decoy. Even the new mom-and-pop shop decoys coming out of places like the SOAB Imitator are well under that price point.

I have a real decoy swimmer and grass gets stuck in the little prop almost constantly...even in mostly open water. The shaker looks cool though.

True. I did have to make slight modifications to keep it weedless. I put a piece of PVC around the prop with mesh wire on both ends.

I have a spinning wonderduck mallard butt also, but it's a little too noisy for my liking. I keep it off before shooting time so it doesn't scare ducks swimming in my decoys away.

Id still choke over the price. While im nothin close to a big money duck hunter, Id still think retail value should be around $90-$120. Even at $100 I cant see myself ever buying one.

$100 would be great. But even something mass-produced like mojos are $120-$150 their full-sized motorized decoys. Same goes for lucky ducks, higdon, and wonderduck. I can see a startup like this one being a little more expensive, especially since he's not just modifying an existing decoy. I could be wrong but it looks like he created a whole new duck from scratch.

There are definitely cheaper motion duck decoys but I haven't found any that are as realistic as this one.

Maybe you should post the link to the decoy you're trying to advertise in case someone missed the first 5.

The splasher flasher draws attention but just looks like a mojo with some spray. It's so so in the realistic department.

I saw one on fb that looked pretty cool. It sat on a stick and hovered over the spread, looked like a mallard trying to krump dance

There are definately lots of options but in my humble opinion, there just isn't another decoy out there with such realistic motion. I thought others might agree but getting most people to address the opening topic is like trying to shoot a duck with a slug blindfolded. Lol

To be fair, I think 3 or so commented on it's movement. Haha

There is no best in my opinion they all work better at different times and circumstances. Higdons, Lucky duck mallard machines and the good old fashion jerk rig. Some work better in big spreads small spreads and very shallow water I think really got to have them all.

I would say use the Mallard machine the least because itís a pain in the arse to set up-Looks like conditions ideal for it Saturday a.m.

I don't care how realistic it is. It could have real feathers on it, walk up and down the bank and do the duck dance and I still would not be interested at that price point. I have done fine with stationary decoys that are over 30 years old, beat up, and original paint. So "most realistic" is not a selling point for me. It would have to be on a 50% to 75% clearance before I would even take a second look. When I pulled the youtube up I did see a similar decoy with the flipping head. So similar that one or both of these companies may be be violating someones patent. It is only a little more than half the cost of the one posted. I doubt I would buy it either though. The same company did have another one that I did like better than either of the head spinners that just bobs the head under water like a feeding duck and makes splashes. Also almost half the cost down in some of the higdon/mojo motion decoy price ranges. That one I might consider if I was in the market. http://www.bandedmallard.com/ But I am not. For two motion decoys that will cover most situations, nothing is going to beat out the fast strobe effect of a spinner and your basic jerk string rig.

Let me tell you that drake wake would be like the wonder duck. All you need unless it's 32 degrees outside. Then it's trash..

Ok. The motion is pretty darn good. At $1,500 for a half dozen it's not something I would consider.

Ill hunt with motion decoys whenever someone else brings them. All I own is a jerk cord and kill plenty of public land ducks with it.

I got one before last season to setup at my brother's place, but he never got any real numbers so never hunted it but a couple of times. Last Sunday was perfect at the deer lease, zero wind. Spent 10 minutes untangling the cords, ran back to the layout, hooked it up... no go. mad

Got it back home to see what was up. Battery was fine, switch was good, connection OK. The motor had locked up. Jacked with it a bit and it started working. Gonna give it a whirl back out there again when the wind is light. I've heard good things.

If you can keep the mallard machine packed away nice and neat and hunt a place where you have a long enough chord to reach your blind, there's no better motion on the market. Ducks will try to sit on top of it. I've killed tons of ducks a foot above the decoys. My only gripe is the length of the chord, which you could lengthen yourself I guess. Also, it's not a light throw in your pack and walk in a half mile to a secluded spot type of decoy. It's a "drive your truck to your private stock pond or swamp and unload it" type of decoy.

Oh yeah, I meant to circle back to this. Sun had zero wind so I got it rigged up with a couple of pulsators. Sucked em in, two limits before sunrise.

I like this one the best but as far as price point goes, they're all out of range for me personally. But if I ever was in the market, I really like that feeder one!!!

I just received two Higdon Pulsator XS decoys. The batteries are built in to the decoy. Super easy to set up. Testing them out this weekend. I'll let you know!

I've got the older one and it was ok but it was great if your focus was on splashing. I think the new one will have better decoy movement and water movement.

I've been making my own swimmers, feeders and fliers for years. Most are powered by bilge pumps and 12v batteries and work pretty good. I usually end up spending 50-100 on each one depending on how complicated they are. If you have a few tools and are handy, you can save a few bucks by building vs buying.

I think they did awesome. The birds really honed in on them. I am probably going to order two more for next season and run a spread of 4 Pulsators and a dozen expensive decoys. I might go with a dozen flocked pintails and 4 Pulsators. I think this would be a great late season spread.
