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.

How does the Hidgon swimmer work for looking realistic. Anyone use one?

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.

We did. It's too expensive. Drop the price $100 and I'll buy one.

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.

Come on man? Wonder Duck makes the best motion decoys, bar none. They were the first, still the best & as a bonus. Made in Texas.

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.

I'm just trying to get other peoples thoughts on the motion of the decoy. That's what I was curious about.

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
