Mojos on cloudy days?

Mojos on cloudy days? - 11/27/20 12:59 PM

I have had a lot more success with mojos on sunny days dove hunting. I don’t use them a lot duck hunting because it seems like they are just not that effective here in central Texas on small water(except for teal). Hunting a 6-8 acre lake with about 300 ducks tomorrow. Would you guys even bother putting one out? Not many teal, but this lake is big enough it’s not a slam dunk. Got a good hide in what I think should be near the X for north wind. Thanks for any advice

I would take and use the mojo...but if the ducks flare from it...relocate the mojo into the area they land in...that way the mojo will flare the ducks from their X to your X. Good hunting!

I would take it, better to have it and not need it. If its not working just put it away.

We use them on the flooded rice fields for Teal but rarely take them out for coastal hunts. They work extremely well for dove but I have mixed results with the ducks. Like the others said, give it a try, it can't hurt.

I always have a couple of mojos out, but there are days when the won't decoy I will not hesitate to pull them up. Sometimes I feel they get mojo shy for whatever reason, cloudy or sunny.

Floating flashers on a timer are the way to go IMO

Don't use it. No need and you run more of a risk of flaring ducks.

If you weren't going to have any wind I'd say maybe, but with a decent wind, good hide and on the X...I wouldn't bother with the mojo.
