Diver decoy set up/placement

Postby bobbyy » Thu Mar 27, 2014 8:43 pm

I have 3 dozen diver decoys 1 dozen Bufflehead decoys and 2 dozen of bluebill decoys they all are on long lines and I was wondering how I should place them or set them up to get more ducks to come in? Thanks

The answer to this question depends on too many variables. Hunting from a boat, layout, point or shoreline. Wind direction and speed, wave action, species targeted, etc., etc., etc..
Every day I hunt divers my spread is different depending on the combination of these variables.

When hunting divers I prefer to run a blob of decoys with longlines running out from that

Not a super seasoned diver hunter but being on the east coast in NC for a few years now I would have to say lots of success comes from the blob or 2 with long lines running to each. But blind placement is key in the sense as well. Can't be to fare over here nor there you know?!
