Wow three dozen could be a little tough to hunt with, but it can be done. I would also try to add some rags, it is an easy way to get a big spread for cheap. Good Luck.

Here is a little tip to make your spread look bigger too. Make sure all your decoys are spread out, the father apart they are the bigger your spread is going to look.

IMO rags are not worth the time and effort being such a short life span before they asre trashed. On the other hand, wind socks are made from Tyvek and hold up MUCH better. I dislike the North Wind brand due to the way they set them up (poor quality, not durable enough), rather do a google and get some customs socks with a 3/16" dia alum 2' L. stake with a 1/2" bent around 180 degrees at top, grometted top and bottom through the plastic collar, go headless initially. Go 50/50 on the snows to blues ratio if MS rlyway (either coast go all white). About $400 per 100.
