Decoy spread/size for flooded bean field

Postby BooneVFL88 » Tue Dec 31, 2013 8:11 am

So a few friends and I have been hunting this flooded bean field for a few weeks now with moderate sucess. Had more bad days then good, but still having a good time. I am not very experienced with this type of hunting, I am used to timber. My question is what would be typical size for a spread in this situation. We have a sunken pit with roll top with some standing beans on either side. We have been putting out about 45 decoys according to wind along with a half dozen canadas, and mojos depending on the wind. Does this sound like the kind of proper set up for this situation. We have seen alot of ducks that were at workable height, but did not seem interested, just wondering what some might think. Thanks
I'd rather be huntin

Duck's don't like mojo's anymore
