For all you guys who don't like these things it sure seems like you are in the minority. I personally don't have one but the few times a year I hunt a refuge I seem to be the only one without. Seems like they work, though I kill my share of ducks, I have often had birds come to me then suck into a moto a pond away and bang. I would rather not have them at all, but I am about ready to buy one just to be on even footing. Can you guys give me any good reasons not to give in and buy one? I'm getting weak, and about ready to join the crowd.
