    @Craig it's all about location and hiding. if you are where they want to be. you don't reall need em. just gotta be sneaky

    I never use decoys anymore. A few years ago me and a buddy of mine we’re hunting with decoys and the ducks kept flaring from our set up I picked up all the decoys and they started falling in like crazy. I think they see every kind of decoy there is by the time they get to us in Mississippi and are scared to death of them. I think they hurt more than help but that’s just my opinion

    @Steve yes sir I’ve got a lot of decoy’s hanging in my shed that I haven’t used in probably 5 years. I always kill my limit too if we have ducks here
