I bought one of those mojo wind decoys to go with my regular mojo and I know they arent the greatest things to use but I got one. I can't get the darn wings to turn real good it takes alot of wind to even budge it. My question I does anyone know of an idea I can do or something to use to make them spin like they are on bearings??

That is the whole reason I don't buy them. I bought a wind driven mojo dove, 20 mph wind it may be good if not better than battery operating one. Good luck with it..

We used the grafite and it don't do anything. I haven't tried the WD40, I don't think it will work but I'll give it a try, thanks guys. Good luck hunting!

I've hunted with a wind powered and a motorized side by side and the results were the birds prefered the motorized 100%. It was a very windy day so a lack of spinning wasn't an issue, however noise could have been. Even birds that would come from the side of the wind powered decoy would flare off of it and commit to the motorized decoy.
