View Full Version : Motorized Decoy---Tip up?

A couple of years ago I was at the SHOT Show in Vegas and saw a decoy called (if I remember correctly) the EZ-Tipper. The decoy slowly dropped its head as if feeding, the body tipped down, then the head and body sprung back to a normal position and the movement started all over. It caused some nice movement on those windless, bluebird days.

Has anyone seen these or know where to get them?

Don't know the answer to that...but sounds good.I hunted last week over a double mojo that was on a whirling " T " looking affair,which made the two circling ducks look as if they were getting ready to land.It was first day of the second split,and the ducks were really drawing into it.I called it the "whirling dervish" .The owner of the farm said that they had bought it and then added some elastic braces to the mojos so they would not get tangled from swinging too wildly.It was pretty amazing.

I've seen something like that, too. It had three whirling ducks. It looked pretty impressive but required a 12V system to run it. I hunt in some remote areas that require me to "pack in" so I need to be careful not to overload myself with gear. I have a cart I sometimes use but once it gets muddy, the cart is of no use.

If so I have seen these in the store and have seen them work, I have not used one hunting but know a couple guys who have and liked them.

I know they have some in stock here, not sure where you are located. https://www.stlawrenceoutfitters.com/xlsws_php/index.php?c=web2.97&product=41106-3

No...I actually have one of these. The head/neck are rubber and the motor drops the head as if feeding. In the one I'm looking for, the entire body "tips" and then violently springs back creating a large splash and ripples.

Thanks for replying, though.
