I would set up on a high point. Have some decoys that look like are walking up the hill towards the main flock on top of the hill.

It's ok to setup on the high point, but DO NOT put your blind on a high point. When you put your blind on a peak it makes your profile stick out. You will want to be high enough to have good visibility, but low enough that your silloutte is blended in with the terrain
I love my job, it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

:withstupid:

I am in the mountains hunting residents. I hunt low areas as long as we can be visible so we can hide better. Some times we hunt the peaks so the dekes can be visible but them we have to hide on the slope where they will fly in at.

There is nothing better than hunting with friends and then crackin' a couple of cold ones afterwards.

Did you ever notice that when scouting most of the birds are in halfway near the top part of the hidden side of the slope and a few sentries heads near the top...then set up half way up the slope with the dekes the same way and the blinds set so..you can see .. not profiled and hopefully have the sun at your back ith the right wind directions..put a few sentries as range visibility markers near the top of the slope with only the heads visibilbe from the road.
