    Ok guys the divers usually show up around Thanksgiving in my area and I am looking at puting a diver spread together. Would 2 Drake Buffleheads and 2 Canvasbacks be alright for a spread? I have never hunted divers before and would like to try and decoy them this year. Any info is appreciated...

    My friend and I tested our luck with divers this fall and we really like it. We are wondering if gang rigs are the way to go? What brand and speices of decoys does everyone use?

    Back in NC we did a lot of layout hunting for divers, is that popular here on the river? I noticed a lot of divers during the return migration this spring.
