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

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
