Most hunters seem to have done well opening day. I shot at San Luis on Sunday mostly Teal flying. Do you think you would have done better with the Spinning Wing Decoy.

It may have helped, but I for one didn't mind at all being able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the marsh without them spinners everywhere. I am all for a total ban. I am no purist but I think they are to much of a distraction.

Illegal to use them in PA... in case you're ever duck hunting in PA.

Don't own one and don't miss them one bit...But on a good note, come December first it will be easier to spot which holes are taken when you are walking out mid-morning.  Everone that has been sucked into the "magic of the moto" better use 'em while you can, I don't suspect they will be legal in CA many more seasons.

Never used one, and they will no doubt be gone next year.

But, I do admit that I do use movement decoys - a tipper that vibrates and creates a small ripple and I know guys that use the wigglers in their decoys.

After reading the CWA magazine that just came out, it looks like they may want a total ban on anything like those as well.

I understand the need for no moto...But, I do not see anything wrong with a decoy that creates a small ripple just to give some movement to the water, and I hope they do not outlaw those.

All electronices or none, if their going to ban some ban them all.  You want movement on the water, make a jerk line.

Not one bit.  I've definetly done better without them.  Now my taking 6-10 dozen decoys out and decent(IMO) calling actually means something again.
