I was seriously thinking about getting a layout boat to diver hunt on different sloughs on reservoirs. We luck up and have a flock of bluebills buzz the decoys, but they are always flying a hundred yards out along with cans, redheads, goldeneys, buffles, etc. Also we have mallards, gadwalls, and puddle ducks land out in the middle of the sloughs too!! Here are my questions. 1. SHould I put coot decoys in my spread to shoot ducks? not coots! 2. Will puddle ducks still decoy well with a layout boat made for divers? or does covering it up with fastgrass or some other camouflage work in big water? 3. Will divers still come in if you have it camouflaged with fastgrass? 4. How many decoys do you recommend to shoot divers?
1 if coots are around yes
2 no, shoot them when they make their first close pass, geese are a little easier
3 never tried it but I would guess yes
4 I dont believe you can have too many, but my wife has a differing opinion
