Dear hunters,

Before going for duck shooting, make it sure you are carrying proper decoys in sizes according to duck species.
Not many hunters will ditch their old decoys and buy all super-magnums to have a spread. They may replace lost decoys with the oversized decoys a few at a time, but the smaller dikes still have a lot of wear left in them. They're too valuable to toss.

But the important thing is to study hunters' decoy ideas and tactics and see how they relate to your situation. There are effective ways to add motion judiciously - without going overboard.

There are times when fine-tuning a spread to a particular species is as simple as adding some wood duck or pintail decoys. Painting a few mallard decoys flat black might increase a spread's visibility.

Too many hunters just toss out their decoys, hide and start calling. But by fine-tuning a spread, they can add to its realism and bolster its attraction to ducks that most experts agree are becoming increasingly wary.

The time to be haphazard with decoys is gone. Creativity is now required to fool birds into thinking that your decoys are the real McCoys.
Remember always repaint your old decoys before any first shoot of your season.

Best regards.

@Hunting Masters: repainting of decoyes is not an easy job, but result can be good.
