Some of the guys have riverblinds and leave the dekes out the whole sesason. I have all of my decoys in the garage in the rafters. Prolly 300 to 400 in bags right now.

Im hoping that at least something comes down. The next 4 days are all planned out with tomorrow going on a morning hunt with Diver Slayer. Friday will be out with my buddies from school here, saturday the family is bringing the boat up for a morning hunt, and sunday the crew from school is going out again. Im not expecting to shoot limits but to have a good time with friends and family and to freeze our asses off and break ice! Decoy wise i will be putting out 4 doz ducks and 2 dozen geese (shells, floaters). Saturday with the boat we will put out 6 doz ducks and 4 doz geese.

good luck! Sounds like you have a good few days ahead of you! Hope the birds come as well. Just to shoot a few new birds would be nice.

We leave em out for the most part on the river.. We take the goose decoys and about 50 ducks out every trip so we can move them according to the wind to try to get the birds to square up on the blind to get everyone a chance to shoot

That's a major problem we have is to get the birds to square up for everyone to shoot.. Usually its just one or two guys to shoot out of 3 or 4 guys, kinnda tough

this is true. usually you can get the spread pretty good, but if birds dont work right first couple times i would say try to change your dekes, that could definately make them finish differently.
