Topics on New York hunting on the Delaware river to discuss, Delaware duck hunting, tactics and more.
I have a spot in mind and I am torn as to where to set up. I've scouted the spot a few times but haven't seen any consistent enough patterns to make it an obvious choice.
So my question is... Where do you prefer to set up, In the back of a cove or on a point in a marsh?
I know the wind will play a factor in the decision. I'm thinking point to increase visibility, but the cove just seems more "ducky" in my opinion.

I only like points for divers. It provides visability.
I'd say cove, but with the caveat that birds will still be able to see your decoys while flying their normal path.
If you're on a river or creek (say anything less than 50yrds wide) I'd probably take the point then too.

Look at what birds like...I notice that they like to bunch up in the protected cove, If water isn't moving fast.
But , they like to line up on edges of points when water is flowing.
Give me credit when this works!!!
Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk.
That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

i would say point because if you cheat it a little you can cover both. Unless their on/in two different spots.
Theres always someone out there thats better then you. I'm that guy.
