The action was what I have been looking for on the tuffs that come with the decoy. Plus, I have a coyote tail that I hooked to a gun cleaning rod and the rod fits the motor perfect. The tail I will use with Dan when we use the coyote decoy pelt he has. The tail will add motion to the decoy.
Most camera tripods or spotting scope tripods should fit the Mojo...I have a Mojo and I just screw it into the camera tripod and works perfect...I read alot of the Mojos break when you try n ram the stake into the ground...the tripod also works great on frozen ground.
Good tip Nastygunz. Thanks. I have 2 tripods I bought at a yard sale last summer. 1 is a small compact. I'll try the fit this morning. OH, I also, have my Burris spotting scope pod to try. That is real small and would be great to put in the pack.
It is a new tool to work with. Opens up new doors to invite mister coyote to walk through. I have also been seeing Bobcat tracks here in Maine and would like to have one come to the caller. That is still a first I would like to do. In Maine you can hunt them from Dec 1 to Feb 14.
Found the Burris tripod and you were right nastygunz it fit perfect. COOL! I ran the decoy and it was very stable and ran with no problems. The pod is 9 1/2" for a total height of 27 1/2". I have camo cloth I have for my caller and will cut a piece to cover the pod. The tightening handle will be replaced by a bolt I will get at the hardware store today. Nice setup small and compact and will fit very well in my pack. It all breaks down and fits in a Hefty 2.5 Gal zip bag.
Good onya mate!...I also just bought a full size tripod from the salvation army store for 2 dollars...fully adjustable..I took the rubber u shaped shooting rest off my eastman monopod and it screws right onto the tripod head just like your mojo fit...so for 2 dollars and a little camo paint I have a kick arse shooting tripod!..we Navy men are adaptable haha.
Another Mojo trick i saw is to get a piece of small pvc pipe and cut a section off and glue it so it is over the push button on the Mojo that turns it on so it wont get accidentally turned on by getting bumped in your backpack, etc.
I was going to take off the lock handle, but after thinking about it I will use it to tighten the pod if the ground is not level. Keeping the decoy plumb. (straight up and down) ;D I do like how it all packs up. It is fun to work things out.
Steve. I took a very slow walk around the farm and the one next to it today. Took me about 3.5 hours to walk the field edges of both but i made.
I found a couple great spots to use the mojo!!!! Lots of fresh tracks. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Great, Jeff. Glad to see you out and about. So, when you get ready give me a call and will try to fool those coyotes with the new MOJO. Dan is out of state, but Graham might want to go and he has a MOJO too! I want to work with Graham and try to use 2 callers with different sounds back and forth. He has a WT also.
Double howling. Two Callers are Better than One. Maybe. Will see. Start off with a Yip Yip Hooowl followed by another Yip Yip Hooowl using a male or deeper sounding howler. Wait three minutes and repeat. During the second Yip Yip Hooowl, have the second caller come in with a Yip Yip Hooowl followed by another Yip Yip Hooowl using a female or younger pup sound. If there are coyotes around, they will usually talk back at this point, but not sooner. At about 10 to 14 minutes into the stand, give a few rabbit squalls.
A more vocal calling sequence using double howling. Lots More is Even Better Start off with a Yip Yip Hooowl followed by another Yip Yip Hooowl. Wait two to three minutes and give a flurry of yips and howls mixed together for 15 to 30 seconds. Both callers are calling at the same time. Really whoop it up, like there is a whole family of coyotes singing out. Wait about thirty seconds and repeat. Do this three of four times. At about 10 to 14 minutes into the stand, give a few rabbit squalls.
If anyone has done this or they give this idea a try I would like to hear the feed back on how it worked.
