Been hunting this spot one a week and for some reason I can't get them to decoy for nothing. Using dakota decoys and calling them aggressive and non aggressive but still no luck they just won't look my way. Any tips?

any decoy movement? I prefer a jerk string over a mojo. Often times our jerk string and a mallard machine will bring em in with no calling or minimal calling at all.
Are you hunting birds that have been around a while? Are you leaving your decoys out? These can all be factors in birds flaring.

You are not where they want to be. Change that, then they will decoy.

Go where the birds want to be. Hard running traffic on early season birds.

Look for the x. Often on burnt edge, rugged maps with dotted lines.

Try one of these:

What kind of cover are you using? be sure they can't look down into your cover.

turn off your mojo and hide.
