Clockwise or anti clockwise?

Recommended Posts

Just received new magnet from a1. After putting it next to my old one whilst running noticed that new one runs clockwise whilst old one runs anticlockwise. Wouldn't of thought it makes any difference would it? Wondering if I ran my old and new magnet together whilst shooting birds wouldn't be put off with them going in opposite directions??

I have never known pigeons to be attracted to birds on a rotary going anti clockwise.

I have had magnets running both ways, if the pigeons see what they like on the day, they will come in. Its when you got forward facing birds going in reverse you need to worry. :lol:

Really will be interested to see if I notice a difference with birds reactions with clockwise rotary. After all these years thinking it was my bad field craft could of been damn magnet going wrong way!!

I have no idea why anyone would think that two magnets rotating in opposite directions, would deter pigeons from decoying.

But they were Fenland pigeons :lol:

You wouldn't have got away with that in Norfolk la bala , they would have took invasive action and flew away in reverse . :lol:

Motty its good to see there are other decoyers out there that are not bothered if the magnet is going clockwise or anticlockwise

Bought a magnet once,

put it together,

when you connect up the battery as per the instructions,

it rotates and unscrews it's off the motor. :mad:

 

It went back in the bag and back in boot of the car/shed

+1 next thing will be putting a sign at the bottom of field asking pigeons to come in only from the left or right to suit the magnet, Lol.

Makes no difference which way it goes....but!

 

If you have the A1 lightweight rotary you cannot have it running anti clockwise because the drive will only engage in a clockwise direction.

Small further question regarding rotation; the A1 fancy decoys wing position isn't terribly clear; should they flap as appearing to fly 'backward' or 'forward' ? If I put the white part on the underside, they fly 'backward' like they are braking...

 

Or does it matter at all?

The question you should ask yourself is does it spook or pull the birds? The main thing is getting movement in your pattern so it pulls birds close enough for a shot, if your setup spooks them when they are 20/30 yards out then its done its job, they are within killing range.
