late season mallard spread

Postby skers_mallards » Wed Dec 22, 2010 11:54 am

I was wondering how other people set up late in the field. Decoy number, spread shape, etc.

Right now we are hunting a field that has been holding about 500 ducks and alot of geese in the area. We are using a dozen mallard shells with about 6-12 full body geese around the blinds. As long as your blinded in with the field good it shouldn't be a problem. Have been using a few mojos at the top of the hole too. Good luck

Sorry forgot the spread shape. Been using a U or J hook, trying to catch them coming into the spread looking at decoys and not us. These fields are pretty short on cover and we don't want them staring right at us.

I've had good hunts with 2 dz full body Mallards and 2 Mojos. I put the dekes in a pretty tight group surrounding the blinds and a couple in between, more in front and beside the blinds and a couple in back with the mojos right in front facing one angled to the left and one to the right so the ducks can see them from any direction.

not sure where your hunting, but by this time of the year in Ark ducks are already paired up and usually small groups......always scout and notice how live birds are grouped up and try to mimick what you see.
