I use flags for geese and spinners for field shooting ducks. The spinners seem to work better for ducks and won't bother the geese if you turn them off when geese are working.

In my layout boat I use a black and white flag and it works well in getting the divers over for a look.
I love to hunt....so why do I scout?

Never tried it. My guess is that it might work for a distance but up close, it would be a two out of place movement, unlike a spinner where it is natural movement all the way to the decoys. I give it a shot this year and see what happens.

I've never actually specifically used them for ducks, but we've used them while shooting ducks from a goose spread. But, don't think we actually flagged to the ducks, just the geese.

But.....kinds of sounds like something that might be worth a shot this fall to see what it does. Might drive a flock or two away, but atleast then you have your answer.
