If you are in the spot where the ducks want to be, you only need but a half dozen or a dozen decoys and a spinner. If you are trying to pull them from another location, or pull down migrators, you will need quite a few decoys. Usually around 3-4 dozen geese, and a couple dozen mallards.
Spinners are the best thing that could have happened for field hunters, they will bring ducks in much better than they do over water. Just make sure you have a remote for them so you can shut them off if geese come, geese hate them.
