Hunting is an occupation that exists as much as the human mind. From primitive guns, people went to perfect weapons. And although there is no urgent need for such a method of obtaining food, hunting always calls on the bosom of the nature of romantics. A true hunter feels a unity with nature, he must feel the animal himself. Walk on the grass, bending in the dew, to smell the early morning or smoke evening - what could be more beautiful? But hunting is not only romantic. This is also a technique. A lot of little things you need to know the hunter to bring the game home. And these little things are not universal: you can not use the same way for hunting maral and drake. About the birds we'll talk, more precisely, about those adaptations that are necessary for hunting for them. Such a necessary thing is a decoy duck. With your own hands made or purchased, electronic or wind - the hunter is often not easy to make the right choice. We will consider the assortment of mangas.
Features of duck hunting
Choose the method you need, based on the time of year. In the offseason, use a stuffed bird. Such an adaptation can be bought in any specialized store, and they come in different price categories: from the simplest, which will cost you cheaper than two hundred rubles, to radio control ducks with traffic elements more expensive in dozens of times. At this time, the extraction of males is forbidden, so the hunter must be extremely cautious and attentive. They go to the ducks and with the dog - the best assistant to the hunter. The original way is to use the manga.
The best friend of the hunter
Using a manga suggests that you already know how to play it, so practice at home, otherwise hunting will not succeed. Hold the decoys only with one hand, imagine that this is the bottle from which you are drinking. Keep your instrument in a dry place, avoid prolonged contact with water. On the hunt "pokryakaite" slightly in the decoy, wait for the appearance of the first duck, then the whole pack - and shoot.
Windmills on the duck are inexpensive, and their range is very wide. So you can go to the hunting shop and pick up a tool to your liking. American mangos are very popular. By the way, their quality is also very good. Ducks are everywhere the same - so take it safely and know that domestic ducks will understand your signal.
The design is also striking in variety, although it does not matter for the quality of the manga. Although so you can distinguish your manki, if it is configured in different ways. Yes, and in the grass to look for a tool, say, red, it's better - but it's unprofitable for camouflage. Ask for advice to the seller-consultant.
Manoe for the ducks with their own hands: a couple of practical ways
To make a simple device, you can search in numerous forums drawing a manga for a duck. In principle, a seasoned hunter can do without him. Choose the material - it should be a dry birch. We need a small brusochek no bigger than your palm, so it will be more convenient. Initially, the blank has the shape of a cylinder. And we drill this cylinder along, so as to make it look like a tube with not very thick edges. Then very gently cut in the same direction. We now have two identical grooves. You can treat them separately, but it is easier to connect the halves again with electrical tape, then give the tube a conical shape. The wide part is also sometimes treated, so that the device becomes like a beak of a duck. Parts of the billet are smeared with ethanol stain and nitrocellulose. This is done so that the decoy is protected from moisture. And then we have to make the musical part of the manga, so to speak, its whole secret. For him, we take a piece of tin, for example, from a can of drinks. We make the tongue a bit shorter than the tube, we insert it between the parts of the "beak". The next step is that we need to find a polyvinylchloride cambric, well, or a ring made from this material. You will plant it on a narrow part of the hunting tool. If you have a musical ear, then check the sound of the manga yourself. Move the tongue and the PVC-ring to achieve the ideal result.
But this is not the only way how to make a decoy to a duck. If you wanted to exotic, you can try other natural materials - for example, bone. It looks like a pipe with a groove on the ends (one looks up, the other down) and holes in them. But making it ideal is very difficult.
And the manufacture of a manga for a duck in the third way is not that difficult. We need two cartridges (the hunters do not have a shortage of such materials), made of brass. We connect them side by side. Simple manipulation - and it's just two tubes. Next, take light wood or cork so that they fit perfectly into the tubes. After the fit we take out the wooden stuffing. We need to cut a strip of wood, about a sixth of the whole tube. Cut the material along! Then insert the wood or cork back into the sleeves. Manok for ducks, with their own hands which is easy enough to make, ready!
Electronic decoy: for and against
This miracle of technology can also be purchased at the store. Although electronic duck mock-ups can also be made with their own hands, it is unlikely to give such an effect. Speaking of its device, it's just a player with a column, although the design of this manga is more complicated. You can choose which set of sounds to record. Settings can also be changed, but not on all mangos. Experienced hunters say that such a tool is not as effective as a wind instrument, although there are some who are very good at the task. Yes, and there is an electronic decoy expensive. In addition, the use of this tool is prohibited, even though it is available for free sale. But this is already a personal matter for every hunter.
Arsenal of hunting manki
So, we figured out the types of mangs - or rather, almost figured out. After all, there are many kinds of these. And every hunter can find that manok, which will attract the largest prey!
