What kind of decoys and how many do you guys like to use up here in Maine. Also what do you guys do for confidence decoys, or any kind of movement. So far I've gotten six ducks and I'm looking to improve.

Two dozen decoys would handle most situations very well.You don't need a lot for most duck hunting,sometimes even a half dozen is plenty.Mallard or Black duck dekes are effective on most every duck species,especially here in Maine.A couple goose decoys off to one side of your spread is a common practice too,the geese are added as a confidence factor.
My lab is still the best hunting partner there is.
