i have permission for a wheat field but the thing is there is a river that runs right next to the side of it.

If the river floods the field you're in great shape. Even if it doesn't I'd say go with the field.

Definitely shoot the field, set out some dekes and give em the feeder call, those ducks that would go to the river will go for the field. so, you will get the best of both. Sounds like a fantastic spot. Lets hear how you do.

I mean..............both at the same time. This is the most natural setup known. As long as there is no treeline and embankments as well to mess things up.

Are the ducks using the field to feed in?

Or the river for a mid day looofing?

I'd hunt the area where the birds are using it.

Find out where the birds want to be and go there cant go wrong with that if you dont have time to watch them set up on one and adjust from there

put out at least a dozen floaters and 2 dozen shells/silos/full bodies. Set your blind near the waterline and see where they want to land. My guess is there going into the field

i have hunted a set up on the edge of a river and a corn feild a couple of times. it has always worked wonders for us. if you can set a nice spread out with floaters and sceary decoys and the edge with soem standing in the water, then put feeders in the feild you will have a good hunt.

Best of luck to you
