Hunting Scoters!

Postby OneLunG » Tue Oct 31, 2006 11:18 pm

Alright, the Scoters are in force up here in SE Alaska - This will be our first season hunting them. We will be hunting out of a boat. Currently the only diver decoys I have are 3 dozen bluebill decoys.

Will scoters decoy to these? Or should I invest in some scoter decoys asap?

go to don ables buy ultra flat black and ultra flat white spraypaint... Problem solved. Paint the dekes like oldsquaws then take me hunting :getdown: (seriously my sea duck hunting friends use oldsquaw decoys for all sea ducks)
