Probably more. There’s a built-in timing circuit. If you set the WAGGER for 8 second intervals, every 8 seconds there is only a 6/10th second pulse of energy to the motor. Very efficient. Until the pulse is sent, only the “electronics” are working when it’s on. Cold effects battery operation, […]
To balance the power drain. The electronics of the power pack operate on 6 volts. The motor is powered using only 3 volts. Therefore, 2 of the batteries have more power consumed than the other 2. You do not “have to” rotate the batteries, but it’s a good practice.
If you take care of it, it should take as long as your decoy. The foam tail is made of urethane foam, not polyurethane. It’s UV stable. It’s closed cell, so it doesn’t absorb moisture like a sponge. It’s flexible, so it won’t break. In other words, it’s durable, it […]
First of all, it’s the motion that gets the attention. It has to do with “rods” and “cones” in their eyes. Deer see motion better than they see detail. They see better at night than we do for the same reason. Regarding the tail: you’ve seen 2 dogs meet, and […]
Most importantly, it must get seen! Decoy placement depends on whether you’re using a buck or doe decoy and from which way the deer will be coming. Once you know which way the deer will be coming, they will fool you. It seems like they always do! Therefore, some flexibility […]
Which decoy is better: Flambeau’s Redi-Doe, Grazing Doe, or CommanDoe, Carry-Lite, McKenzie, Delta or…?
They all work. The added realism of one vs. the other might make the difference some times, though. The set up for the Flambeau decoys is easier, since you don’t have to stake them in the ground to keep them standing like you must do with the Carry-Lite. They’re both […]
It depends. If you’re hunting in an open field, the whitetail deer can make out your deer decoy easily. You just need to make it look alive, so 16 seconds might be all right. If you’re in the woods, a passing deer may not notice your deer decoy without some […]
Only if you can make it lightweight enough. The tail that is shipped with the units weighs about 7 grams. We have stripped enough skin and fur off real tails to make them work, and it looks good, but the action is not quite as quick as the original tail […]
NO, NO, NO! The scent you put on the decoy will remain with it until removed. Consider this: do you want to be walking out of the woods in the dark carrying something with estrus scent on it? Also, do you realize that estrus scent starts to “rot” once it’s […]
