Sagebrush, you can't be any more right
This late in the season drop the big spreads, they've seen them since they left Canada Lay off the calling, also keep your decoys close to shore it gives them the idea it's ok to land. Puddlers will land in deep water, but they have to feed in weeds near the top or on the bottom. So place them in water that they can feed in Keep some distance between your decoys ducks close up arn't sure of the place, ducks tend to bunch up just before they jump.
Now camo, this time of the year , well anytime my thought is "sweat the details". Again they have seen hunters all the way down, their looking for you to make a mistake somewhere, don't give them one on being seen.
