Try to simulate the positioning of the bids in the field you plan to hunt. If your running traffic or on a field your not familiar with the L of U formations work well.

Remember to set your decoys with the wind at your back so they have the pocket to land into. Remember to keep some space between the fmaily groups and limit the number of sentrys.

dont forget to put some duck shells or full bodies behind your layouts as well. We also put spinners when allowed. if you have ducks feeding in fields in the area this can be one of the funnest ways to hunt them, they will usually come around sun-up so be ready and hit them with some good calling. nothing better than having them swarm your spread and shooting them with their feet down 10 feet off the ground right in your face

Another thing is to not have them all facing into the wind....This simulates birds ready to take flight... When you observe birds in the field they mill around and face all directions.

good point. we mix it up with the decoys all the time. we use big foots and other full bodies, some with moving bases, silo's, shells, higdon shells. The movement is the key. if you have heads bobbing and weavingand bodies moving side to side this is killer, use a flag when they are far out too. if you have a duck spinner turn it off with the geese are coming in, they dont like this type of movement, but the green heads do

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.

      Thanks slowpoke.  I just looked at them again and they're in really good shape actually, it's just that the back boards where the screws attach are weak and some of the screws don't stay in on a couple of them.   Does anyone know of somewhere in the metro (preferably south) that would repair them.  Would a Marine place like Dan's Southside or Valley Motor sports do something like that?

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!
