Oh to be young again.... :welcome:

When I was your age I went out and bought a bunch of carry lite decoys too. Right now they're all in storage because the paint the company uses always flaked off. Now I know you're only 14, so money might be an issue, but if I had to do it all over again I wish I would have gone with some nice quality G & H decoys or those new Green Head Gear decoys. Since you already have a good number of mallard, why not buy some other ducks for added realism? Get a half dozen blue wing teal and a half dozen pintail. That would look really good in your spread. Don't be afraid to try new things...that's what hunting is all about!

Good luck this year!!! :thumbsup:

Decoys

The white on the drake pintails is highly visible from a distance. I have 2 dozen mallards, one dozen pintails, and one dozen greenwing teal. Just get whatever kind of ducks you see alot of. I got greenwings cause we see a lot of them during the regular duck season.
