So I got to tinkering today and came up with this for some better controlable motion on the foots. I just used the motion stands that came with them and bent a piece of round iron and welded it on to stop them from spinnig around in circles.

but you still have the rubber bands.
With the stoppers welded on you dont need the rubber bands on anny more.
How much does this restrict the movement? It looks like they would only be able to move about an inch both ways. Wouldnt this defeat the purpose of having a "motion" stake?
they can move about 1 1/2" in each direction giving them around 3" of total movement. I dont think that any more than that is needed as this way it looks as if they are moving or walking and not spining around, if you look at all the other decoys out there this is about the same or more than what they have.

I agree. To much movement can make the decoy slopping and make alot of banging noise in high wind.
