In my experience your best bet is to let themeave on their own then slip in with six or so of your cleanest best looking decoys, hide very well and let them trickle back in. If they show up daily I may not even take decoys.

Observed what they were doing and realized they were going out to feed all day on acorns and coming back at dusk. When they came back this time, they had quite the surprise in store. I couldn't reload my gun fast enough. They were gun shy, or decoy shy. I'd shoot and they'd just come back around. It was amazing. Definitely wish I could do it again.
