They are too susceptible to predators that way. Always try to set up in the exact spot that you saw them when scouting, which, for me anyway, is usually more in the center of the field. If you dont have layout blinds, you can get one of those beach lawn chairs and camo it and then throw some stubble on top of it. You can get some of them to come in close enough on the edge of a field, but i think that was your problem.

As for circling ducks I too agree it was because of you're proximity to the tree line.To fix that without going to layout blinds you need to set your decoys out at 40 yards.Leave a large landing area in the middle of your dekes.This gives the ducks room to circle in range while their concentration is away from your blind site.I always use some type of motion decoy too.Mojos are great but often windsock decoys work better.
Also try not to call when the ducks are directly over you.their hearing is very good.They can pinpoint your location by your calling.

higgin1225 wrote:I agree with all of the above. We have found that especially later in the season instead of putting your layouts in the traditional wind at your back, edge of spread locations, we move the blinds off to one side where the ducks are crossing right to left into the hole. Now they are looking at your decoys, mojo's etc. instead of the layout blinds.
