Depends on the time of the year but I would say about 70%-30% for the entire spread if you are field hunting. I would have like between 2-4 feeders in a family group, 1 or 2 actives, and 1 high sentry.

Depends on whaty kind of decoys you are talking about. Lower visibility decoys need more sentrys, however high visibility deeks need fewer.

Since fullbodys already sit higher off the ground you can do with less. 1 per dozen would be ideal for me.

Since shells lay on the ground their profile is much lower and not as obviouis, go with 3 sentrys per dozen.
I love my job, it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
