Let's put it this way...I live in North Dakota and an Eider Decoy would really stand out in my decoy spread, but chances are the ducks wouldn't think so. Now pintails probably wouldn't be as blatantly obvious as and Eider, but when the ducks get decoy shy the pintails might scare them off. If I were you, I might think about buying some diver decoys instead. You guys got divers around there, don't you? Maybe some blue bills or golden eye decs. They have very prominant white on them that also stands out.
Hope that helps...good luck! :salude:
