On the surface, this would make sense. But what about the flip side? Consider that most people have a limited ability to carry decoys. This basically means that we have a certain volume in which we can carry our blocks. It comes down to a choice of whether we want to carry a dozen magnums or 18 life sized decoys. Granted, in some instances the magnums might be a better choice. Big water, for example, where the birds can see a long way off, would be one place for the larger than life sized birds. But what about in tight covers? Say in flooded timber. Does the extra size really do you any good, or would more decoys be a better choice?
Either way, if you want to compromise and mix them, the birds won't know the difference. We're trying to fool a bird with a brain the size of half a walnut that's flying by at 35 to 45 mph looking over your spread with one eye!
