Any tips on keeping my decoys from icing up? Went out yesterday morning had ducks flaring away from my spread due to iced over decoys. Wha can I do to prevent this??

What kind of decoys do you use? I wonder what happen if you sprayed them with some de icer?

do not know of course HOW the ice built up......I know that I NEVER throw decoys into the spread, I always PLACE the decoys because I do not want the backs and head getting wet......as for plastics, ice certainly builds up around the body perimeter alot faster than foamers or cork, but that shouldn't really matter......any decoy will get a frosting on those coldest mornings just because the air is colder than the water...not much you can do about that though......placing rather than throwing is the best advise I can offer .....maybe someone else has a 'trick'.....i am a bit leery though of using de-icer.....I would think the shine would be worse and stay forever
