After 30 years in the marsh and the managed areas after puddlers, we made a move to the open water this season to get some room. Like a lot of you, I could never seem to get away from those who will bust at all ducks no matter the range or the fact that they would never be able to get the bird if they did manage to knock it down. Now that we are in the last few days, some of you with a lot of open water experience like to share the fine points of decoy placement with someone not too framiliar with divers? I usually have 50 to 70 blocks, mostly bills, few cans and some goldeneyes. What type of layout works best for you? Any help sure appreciated. I have noticed we get a lot of birds in to about 40 yards which then peel off instead of finishing.
