all great advice. I grew up hunting fields almost exclusively and to start I would suggest picking up a couple dozen goose shells, and depending on your budget, maybe some full bodies to put around your layout blind since they can help break up your outline. As for ducks, i agree, you dont really need duck decoys. A mojo or 3 will get the ducks in no problem. If the geese arent coming in because of the mojo then take it down and you will probably still be fine getting ducks in there. Like Dolsmi said, YOU CANT HAVE TOO MUCH STUBBLE ON YOUR BLIND. After you have set up, just keep adding stubble to the blind until the birds start flying. I like to rake a bunch of it up and pile it on the sides of the blind to sort of "fade" the blind into the field, thus removing any sharp edgest the blind has. Good luck!
