i'm sure we're hunting relatively close.
often later in the season i will set a small group of canada floaters off, maybe 15-20 yards to the side of my duck spread. hunting mostly coastal marshes i know they aren't horribly common. i really feel they didn't spook a single duck. i also know they work well enough on specks. i killed more specks duck hunting this year(not counting goose hunts) than i ever have.
on one hunt i was looking down at a pair of spoonies trying to figure if they'd work in, they were 300-400 yards off. i heard wings. looked and there was a speck cupped and feet down 10 feet over those canadas, getting ready to land. he died. he wasn't the only speck that tried to work them, and he wasn't the only that died over them.
