It is always good to review the basics of placing duck decoys to get the more wary waterfowl to land where you want.

Midwest Flyways talks the basics of placing your duck decoys on the water to give you the most shooting options.

Even if you’re not a beginner, it is always helpful to review your decoy placements. Often, I focus too much on opening up one landing zone, but it’s a good tip to consider having two or even three areas open for the birds.

The other great takeaway is to have different species of duck decoys in your spreads, as well as decoys that have different postures, from active feeding to sleeping decoys, to give a more natural look.

This weekend, I’ll be back on the marsh looking to apply some of these tips to get in more ducks within range.
