What kind of changes do you make in setting up decoys, calling, motion, etc? I know camo & not moving become more critical as you don't have shadows to help conceal you. Just curious what others have found to work......
On wednesday, we hunted out of a blind that faced south with a strong south wind. Way less than ideal conditions. We ended up setting up the decoys for more of an SSW or SW wind to force the ducks to swing from the side instead of trying to set up from behind us. Put a lot of decoys on the side and a lot in front to try to direct them there. Worked out really well, took a lot of convincing on the calls to get them to do it right in some cases. We call pretty hard no matter where we are, whether that be good or bad, who knows but it usually works out for us.
