There is controversy in the duck hunt industry over the use of spinning wing duck decoys. They give hunters a major advantage. There are a few good conservation advantages of using these duck decoys.
Spinning wing decoys lure ducks closer, allowing hunters to shoot ducks at 15 – 17 yards. This increases the opportunity for a clean kill, resulting in fewer cripples and ducks lost and never recovered. It also allows for better identification of sex and species. This reduces the waste in the duck hunt industry and has a positive impact on conservation efforts.
