    <P>I just bought one of those wind powered dove decoys. My question is, do you take the wings off if there isn't any wind?&nbsp; I was wondering if the wings would spook the doves if the weren't spinning in the wind.</P>

    <P>I have one of the wind powered ones and I do not think Katrina could have gotten it to spin. I was in a field where the guys down from us had three. Wow dove magnets. I took out my super lucky duck and it worked fine until they got too close to figure out it was not real. <IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></P>

    <P>I bought one of the wind power doves also. It did not work even the slightest. I returned it and bought a mojo dove. Once you hunt with a mojo dove you wonder how you ever did with out it.</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">To answer the question, NO you don't have to take the wings off<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/wink.gif" align=absMiddle border=0>&nbsp;dove will work it even if it's not spinning, It does help to have other dove dekes on the ground when using the flying deke.<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/wink.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">now for those of you that are having a problem getting a little breeze to move the wings, take the wing assembly apart and where the rod touches plastic, take a #2 pencil and color the area with the lead of the pencil, the graphite should lube it enough to spin in the slightest of breezes.DD </P>
